Silversea Luxury Cruises À KOLYUCHIN ISLAND

KOLYUCHIN ISLAND

Kolyuchin Island is a small island in the Chukchi Sea that is uninhabited and covered with tundra vegetation. The island is the site of a famous rescue operation after a Russian icebreaker was crushed by ice nearby. Located close to the Siberian shore this island has been used as the base for a now-abandoned meteorological station at its western end, while walrus hunters had a few huts on the eastern side. The island has steep, dramatic bird cliffs teeming with Pelagic Cormorants, Thick-billed Murres and kittiwakes. View more

Horned and Tufted Puffins might be another highlight for birders and photographers. Visitors may also see the walrus herds that frequent the shore and water surrounding Kolyuchin.
