Fascinating wildlife, geology & native culture on one epic journey
On this expansive voyage, travel within the legendary Ring of Fire, home to 75% of Earth’s volcanoes—and some of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. Sail down Russia’s rugged coastlines, through the remote Kuril Islands, all the way to Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island. Along the way observe a myriad of wildlife from brown bears and walrus to rare birdlife like the endangered red-crowned crane and the largest living owl species. Hike through fairytale forests, encounter once-forgotten ancient cultures, and get an up-close geology lesson as you Zodiac into a water-filled caldera. As always flexibility is the hallmark of our expeditions and the day-by-day itinerary may change as we take advantage of rare wildlife sightings or a chance to linger ashore for golden hour photo ops.
