Long closed to Westerners, the Russian Far East is one of the planet's least explored destinations. Winter ice isolates the Kuril Islands with their stunning volcanic landscapes and spectacular populations of seabirds and cetaceans. The world’s largest bear roams the Kamchatka Peninsula, while the nutrient-rich waters of the Bering Sea support every form of Arctic life. This is a fantasyland for the intrepid explorer, and every landing here holds promise of something awesome, amazing… encounters that will be with you for a lifetime.
