Silversea Expedition Cruises À MEDVEZHYI ISLANDS

Seal

Found in the East Siberian Sea, bordering the Kolyma Gulf and separated from the mainland by the Melekhova Strait, the uninhabited Medvezhyi Islands (“Bear Islands”) are part of Yakutia, officially the Sakha Republic. The waters surrounding these islands are considered among the coldest and iciest in the Northern Hemisphere and are usually frozen or obstructed by ice for almost 10 months. It was not until Ferdinand Wrangel’s visit during his 1821-23 Arctic expedition that the islands were surveyed. View more

The easternmost of the islands was named “Four Pillars Island” (Chetyryokhstolbovoy) as it has impressive granite pillars of up to 15 meters in height on its eastern plateau –today only three remain standing. Having undergone cryogenic weathering, these pillars are the remains of granite blocks, but the pre-historic Yakut which had already visited the islands some 8,000 years ago considered them to be personifications of spirits and divine heroes and called them kigilyakh (“stone person”). When seen from a distance they do resemble a group of people standing in the otherwise empty landscape. Because of the strategic location along the Northern Route, a meteorological facility on Four Pillars Island started observations in September 1933. A flat sandy beach at the abandoned meteorological station on its southeastern shore provides an easy access to the tundra and top of the island and a second station on the eastern promontory. Flowers, lichens mosses and mushrooms are abundant during the summer months.
