Silversea Luxury Cruises To MEYNYPILGYNO (Chukotka)

Meynypilgyno is a very modern Chukchi fishing village of some 420 inhabitants set on a long spit of land. The village lies slightly upriver –and to reach it one has to enter a narrow river mouth before reaching the calm waters inside. It is sometimes possible to see hundreds of walrus hauled out on the sand spit. At the actual river mouth beluga and grey whales as well as Largha seals can also often be seen. View more

The village of the formerly nomadic people has been set up in 1957 in the tundra with the dramatic rugged mountain range as a backdrop. Chukchi hospitality sometimes leads to the village ensemble performing traditional dances and sharing some of their local history and culture. The village’s surrounding area is considered the most important site in the world for critically the endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
