MIR Featured as Siberia Expert in Condé Nast Traveler
Travel writer and adventurer Sophy Roberts recently visited Siberia on a wintertime trip organized by MIR, guided by none other than MIR founder and president, Douglas Grimes. Roberts wrote about her experiences in an article entitled “Why You Should Visit Siberia in the Winter (Seriously),” which was recently featured in the December issue of Condé Nast Traveler.
I’ve come to Siberia because I like frozen wildernesses…Even if I’m a century too late to plant a flag, there’s still a mystique in the virginity of endless white, a power Siberia has held over me ever since I noticed it on a bedside lamp I had as a child…But while the romance is alluring, the realities of Siberia are forbidding, and require expert guidance. I find my man in Douglas Grimes, founder of the U.S.-based travel company Mir Corporation, which has 30 years’ experience in Russia.
