Silversea Expedition Cruises To OSTROV ORANSKIYE

Located a few nautical miles north of Cape Zhelaniya at the northern tip of the massive island of Novaya Zemlya lies tiny Ostrov Oranskiye; one of a small group known as the Orange Islands. Willem Barentz, a Dutch navigator sailed this region in the late 1500s on the small ship Mercury. The Mercury was one of three ships attempting to enter the Kara Sea in order to find the Northeast Passage above Siberia. View more

It is reported that the Mercury’s crew discovered a massive herd of walrus on the Orange Islands and proceeded to attack them with hatchets and pikes to harvest their fabulous ivory tusks. Only a few were procured and the islands likely sat for many more decades with little to no disturbance from mankind. Barentsz was ultimately forced to turn back from Novaya Zemlya in the face of massive icebergs obstructing his passage. In the modern era, Ostrov Oranskiye may still prove to be a walrus haul out and can offer visitors glimpses of fantastic ice forms.
