Russian Far East Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions


The quality of our veteran staff is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And, now that we are aligned with National Geographic, there are no better Russian Far East expedition naturalists anywhere.

The team composition
Every trip to the Russian Far East sails with a veteran expedition leader, an assistant expedition leader, and a team of naturalists, many of them polar veterans, of a variety of specialties: zoology, biology, ornithology, geology, exploration history, and more. Other members of the team include an undersea specialist, a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, a video chronicler, and a wellness specialist. Together they provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this extraordinary and diverse geography.

More specialties and personalities 
Our 10-to-1 guest-to-staff ratio ensures you the benefits of diverse backgrounds, and the freedom to head out on activities with the naturalist whose interests mirror your own. You are never assigned to a specific group, and our team can custom-tailor activities to match your activity level—to make each day of your expedition uniquely yours, and deeply rewarding.
