Itinerary Overview

Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind

Covering more than 3,800 nautical miles, and nearly circumnavigating the Bering Sea, this wide-ranging voyage explores one of the most rugged and wildlife-rich regions of the planet. Spot coastal brown bears from Katmai National Park to the Kamchatka Peninsula, search for Steller’s sea eagles along the scenically stunning Zhupanova River and be awed by the abundance and variety of marine mammals and seabirds from the Aleutians to the Commander Islands. 


  • Observe an array of marine mammals: Pacific walrus, northern fur seals, gray, humpback, and sperm whales, sea otters and Steller sea lions
  • Marvel at cliffs crowded with millions of seabirds—from horned and tufted puffins to murres and rare whiskered auklets
  • Explore the wild and pristine Zhupanova River, the legendary flagship waterway of Kamchatka, as you search for Steller’s sea eagles and their nests
  • Watch brown bears digging for clams or fishing for salmon in Katmai National Park
  • Visit a Koryak village in northern Kamchatka, and Vitus Bering’s gravesite in the Commander Islands
