Silversea Expedition Cruises To Dmitry Laptev Strait

Bearded Seal (Erignathus barbatus)

The Dimitri Laptev Strait connects the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea and separates the Siberian mainland from the Lyakhovsky Islands (part of the New Siberian Islands). The Laptev Strait is named after Russian Arctic explorer and Vice Admiral Dmitry Yakovlevich Laptev, whose crew were the first Russians to live amongst the area’s indigenous population (who in turn were instrumental in the crew’s survival of a difficult winter).

On Great Lyakovsky Island’s southeastern side is a meteorological station, and the island is quite famous for its cliffs, landscape and fossil finds. There are several archaeological indications that the islands had been visited thousands of years ago, and when the sea level was 100-120 meters lower. The flora on this island consists primarily of grasses, sedges and mosses, and prehistoric bones, shells and plant material have been well-preserved because of permafrost. Tusks of mammoth and other mega fauna’s remains – including sabre-toothed tiger fossils - have been found on the island.
