Lorino village, Chukotka, Russia

Aug 21, 2019 - National Geographic Orion


A leisurely morning was welcomed by all after the excitement of whales with dinner and the crew show for dessert. After lunch, we headed to the small Inuit village of Lorino. We were treated not only with a sunny calm afternoon, but dances, tug-of-war with the locals, canoe races, and a sampling of local foods. All ashore enjoyed mingling with the locals, bird watching, and strolling through the village overlooking the Bering Sea.

About the Author

Ashley Knight

Undersea Specialist

Ashley was raised in the high desert of Sedona, Arizona and escaped to the sea as soon as she was old enough. She developed a love for the oceans when she began scuba diving as a teenager and this has led to a career intertwined with the sea. Her simultaneous career as marine scientist and undersea specialist have given her opportunities to explore the kelp forests of California's Channel Islands, the coral reefs of the Florida Keys, and the rocky reefs of the west coast spanning from Monterey Bay to the Oregon Coast to British Columbia, the fjords of southeast Alaska, and the ultimate cold water of Antarctica.
