Karaginskiy Island and Tymlat Village

Jul 04, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


After our time at Bering Island, we returned to the Kamchatka Peninsula to continue our explorations.  In the morning, we made a bonus landing on Karaginskiy Island, which was filled with birds, wildflowers, and beachcombing treats.  In the afternoon, we had our first experience with the Koryak people and had a marvelous visit to the village of Tymlat.
