Discover some of the most remote regions known to expedition travel on a Russia cruise
The Ring of Fire stretches along the entire rim of the Pacific Ocean, but nowhere are these volcanic landscapes more dramatic than in Russia’s Far East. On board Silversea's intimate and luxurious cruises to Russia, journey across the Bering Sea to the Komandor Islands, Kamchatka and the Kurils, lonely and majestic lands, sparsely populated and vibrant with smoking volcanoes, brown bears and the wild beauty of the vast Pacific Ocean.
The region is one of the richest in the world for seabirds, both in terms of species and their sheer abundance.
Basalt stacks rise from the ocean, nesting spots for unimaginable numbers of seabirds. Sea otters and pods of whales cruise the sea, while sea lions and fur seals crowd the shorelines.
But while birding and wildlife are central themes of this expedition, the region’s human history is quite fascinating, and we include encounters with the Chuchi and Koryak people with their herds of reindeer, and the indigenous Ainu of Kuril islands.
Join us on board a Russia cruise and experience these truly magnificent lands. For the passionate pioneer traveller, this is a wilderness beyond compare.
