Jewels of the Russian Far East13 DAYS from US$7,200 per person
Only a few people have experienced the isolated, wildlife-rich eastern coastline of Russia. Considered as a strategic frontier during the Cold War, the region was almost inaccessible for travel, even to Russian citizens. With the Perestroika and the collapse of the USSR, conditions of access were changed, but with its inhabitants moving west and abandoning its towns and local industries, there are fewer people living in this region.
During the month of September, Russia’s east coast is filled with wildlife: birds that had migrated massively to the area to feed are getting ready to leave, the reindeer and mountain sheep, in preparation for winter are feeding and brown bears are basking in the sunshine. Leading up to the autumn season, vibrant colours spread across the tundra-covered hillsides, making it a photographers’ heaven!
Onboard the Spirit of Enberby, we travel from Anadyir to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy and aim for as many shore landings as possible as we cruise along this remote and fascinating coast, filled with untouched and unique wilderness. We take you on excursions to river mouths, fjords, bays and remote islands for some unique encounters with Russia’s east coast natural environment.
