Silversea Luxury Cruises To Lyakhovsky Island

The Lyakhovsky Islands are the southernmost group of the New Siberian Islands, which are located along the Dimitri Laptev Strait that connects the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea. The New Siberian Islands had already been seen and visited in the early 18th century by Russian explorers. On Lyakovsky’s southeastern side is a meteorological station, and was featured in two Jules Verne novels (referred to as the Liakhov Islands) in the late 19th century. The Lyakhovsky Islands are known by avid explorers for their cliffs, landscape and fossil finds. View more

There are several indications that the islands had been visited thousands of years ago, and when the sea level was 100-120 meters lower that today the islands would have been part of the Great Arctic Plain. The island’s landscape and flora are mainly grasses, sedges and mosses. Prehistoric bones, shells and plant material have been well-preserved because of permafrost. Many mega fauna’s remains have been found on the island, including tusks of mammoth and fossils of saber-toothed tigers.
