A landscape of remote, icy islands, ice-clad volcanoes, and lush green valleys winding through jagged mountain ranges - the remote Russian Coast is a remarkably diverse and inspiring wilderness.

Migratory birds fill the skies, pine and spruce trees sing beneath snow-tinged mountaintops. Remote and wondrous islands that few foreigners have ever seen and a world of pack ice, rich in marine life, polar bears, walrus and spectacular bird cliffs. Uncover the world’s most northern World Heritage Site, Wrangel Island, also home to the planet’s greatest concentration of polar bear dens. The Russian Arctic is an enchanting world, best discovered with an expedition-style Russian cruise.

Our expedition cruises to Far East Russia set sail into the Bering Sea and discover the Chukotka's spectacular, glacier-carved fjords and jagged mountains as well as the historical subarctic Commander Islands, alive with sea lions, fur seals, and otters. Explore the Kamchatka Peninsula by enjoying a Kamchatka tour amongst the ghostly remains of an abandoned military base and be bewildered by its local brown bears. This is the ultimate Kamchatka travel experience. Circle ‘The Ring of Fire’ volcanoes as they blast steam and ash into the sky, and discover geologic wonders of the Kuril Islands, discovering a wilderness beyond compare.

Russia is a destination where our Aurora Partnership Program partner, Heritage Expeditions highlights their passion for exploration and discovery. One of the first companies to operate cruises to Russia and the Russian Far East, Heritage Expeditions understand the challenges of voyages in a region where weather, seas, wildlife, cultural and political sensitivities all come into play.
