Expedition Highlights

The Russian Far East is an epically-scaled geography encompassing the remote Siberian coast, north beyond the Arctic Circle to Wrangel Island, and all the way east to Hokkaido, Japan. Depending on the itinerary you choose, you’ll traverse legendary seas: the Bering, the Chukchi, and other adventurous waters. Discover the special Ks—Katmai, Kamchatka, or the volcanic Kuril Islands. Visit the world’s largest polar bear nursery on Wrangel Island. Witness the lost worlds of Cold War outposts and the remains of gulags. Cruise in wonder past cliffs studded with millions of seabirds. Or see the Steller’s sea eagles unique to the Kuril Islands. Encounter Japan’s little-known Ainu people in their traditional home on Hokkaido, a coast that is also home to red-crowned cranes.
