Silversea Expedition Cruises À Lavrentiya Bay

At the eastern end of Far East Russia lies Lavrentiya Bay. Further east across the narrow Bering Sea lies Alaska. Lavrentiya Bay was named by Captain James Cook on his third expedition in 1778 after the day he arrived in the bay—the feast day of Saint Lawrence. The far east region was already under Russian influence, including having been visited by the Danish explorer Vitus Bering in 1728, whilst employed by the Russian, Peter the Great. View more

Russian fur traders were also in the region as they slowly pushed east into Alaska. Indigenous Chukchi people have long dwelt in Lavrentiya Bay. Traditionally they lived on marine life harvested and eaten fresh, or stored for winter. The Russians founded the town of Lavrevtiya in the bay of the same name in 1928. It was a Kultbaza—a settlement for the education of indigenous communities. Lavrevtiya is now the administrative centre for the Chukotsky District and has most of the limited facilities of this very remote part of Russia. Whales were a highly sought-after prey for the Chutchi who hunted them from boats made of marine mammal skins. Walrus and seals were also hunted. Archaeologists have shown that earlier hunters of the bay used harpoons with wings, thought to assist the flight of the harpoons. Salmon, caught at rivers during the summer spawning runs, and reindeer, were also key foods. Such food is still sought, but only a few whales are permitted to be taken each year. The whales most visitors see in the bay are safe, and they seem to know it.
