About me





Rambler's Top100

Now, let me introduce myself. My name is Yuri Ivanets. I live in Academgorodok (city of Novosibirsk), a scientific centre of Siberia. I've been organizing touristic programs in the Altai mountains since 1999. I work with experienced drivers, who know mountain paths of the Altai mountains in detail, and with experienced instructors. I confide the work with tourists only to professionals who have good recommendations and who turned out to be very efficient. The majority of groups I accompany in person. In 1990-1992 I worked in the Organizing Committee of the International Scientifc Conference "Altai-Himalayas" and I was organizing journeys about the Altai mountains ofgroups consisting of more than 200 participants of the Conference: the Russians, the Americans, the Mexicans, the Italians, the Indians, the Cubans, the Poles, and the Swiss.

By my first diploma I'm a musician. In 1986 I've graduated from the Novosibirsk Concervatory in the speciality "Russian folksinstruments. In my spare time I teach playing balalaika at musical school № 10 in the city of Novosibirsk (Academgorodok). I also study the history of Russian folksinstruments (my book "Balalaika in the history and in the culture of Russia" is being prepared for printing). In 1976-1993 I dedicated myself to concert performances as a balalaika solo player and I was also a director of a Russian folksmusic orchestra of amateurs and a director of a symphonic orchestra of amateurs. According to my second diploma which I received at the Novosibirsk State University I am a psychologist, my specialization is "Body Oriented Psychoteraphy". My diploma entitles me to give psychologic consultations.

I'm a member of the International Slavonic Academy of Sciences, Arts, Education and Culture and a member of the Russian Geographic Society.
