Russia is a vast country, encompassing nine time zones, a complex history, amazing wildlife and rugged landscapes. The spectacular terrain combined with a lack of infrastructure makes travel to most areas in Russia's Far East difficult except by air and sea. Travel by expedition ship is the safest and most enjoyable way to unlock the secrets of one of the world’s last wilderness frontiers. As we sail through pack ice we’ll discover abundant wildlife including brown bears, whales, otters and a multitude of seabirds. Join us as we paddle the wild and spectacular coastline and islands where few foreigners have been, let alone kayaked!
