Silversea Luxury Cruises To Petropavlovsk (Kamchatsky)

Silversea Russian Far East Luxury Cruise

The Kamchatka Peninsula is part of the Eastern frontier of Russia. Due to its close proximity to the United States, the region has played a strategic role in the defense of Russian territory throughout modern history. As a result, the territory was closed for many years to foreigners and Russians alike. Fortunately, the region's isolated position played a significant role in preserving and protecting its unique wilderness and rich biodiversity. With few roads, most regional transportation is by plane, boat, or helicopter. View more

Kamchatka is a spectacular, lavish landscape dotted with fuming volcanoes (150, of which 29 are active), fast-running rivers, and a wilderness that is inhabited by the largest brown bear population (10,300) in the world. The largest eagle in the world, the Steller's sea eagle (approximately 4,500 in number), is also found in the region. Kamchatka is poised to become one of the most exciting sport-fishing destinations in the world, with an estimated third of the world's Pacific salmon population.

Native Koryak Village

In Kamchatka there are still Native people in various ethnic groups-Itelmen, Koryak, even and Chukcha. Since the Russian Cossacks came to Kamchatka in the 17th century, the life of the Natives has changed enormously. Today they tend to live in larger Russian cities and villages. This tour presents a unique opportunity to enter into a traditional Koryak village and community, reconstructed according to ancient customs and traditions.


Koryak

The population of Koryak nowadays is 2,000, but once they inhabited almost the whole Kamchatka Peninsula. With time, the population has significantly decreased and today most Koryak live in the Tigil Region of the Koryak district. Their main occupation was fishing and hunting, and they are experts in herbs - collecting and drying them to make beverages and medicines.


Board the coach for an hour drive to the Koryak village, you'll have a chance to see their winter and summer houses, taste their unique food and enjoy the folk dance presentation with games and songs. Traditional Koryak dances are very interesting and are accompanied only by tambourines, their songs are reminiscent of the sound of birds singing. The people wear clothes made of reindeer skin featuring beautiful embroidery.


After the dances and lunch, board the coach for an hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with a few steps to get on and off the coach. The guests may have to walk up to 300 meters to get to the lodge.

Russian Dacha Visit

Discover the exquisite beauty of the Kamchatka countryside and its importance to the Russian people during this memorable visit to an authentic dacha.


Depart the pier for the approximately 40-minute drive to the Kamchatka countryside for a visit to a traditional summer cabin, or dacha. The dacha is not just a place for weekends or summer vacations. At their dachas, Russian people build greenhouses for growing tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, potatoes, carrots, and beet-root. Almost every family also grows strawberries, a practice dating back to the times of the Soviet Union when the masses had problems buying fresh fruit and vegetables due to the absence of effective storage.


In the past, people built dachas themselves. Today, those who are wealthy enough can afford to have them built for them. Some of the dachas resemble cottages, and are sufficient to live in throughout the year. All houses are equipped with electricity, and almost all have plumbing. Each spring, the Russian people who own dachas come to plant and return in the fall to harvest, providing them with agricultural produce during the year.


Upon arrival at the dacha, meet the local residents and learn about the history of the dachas and their importance to the Russian people. Next, dine on traditional Russian tea and pancakes accompanied by jam and honey. Throughout the tour, marvel at the beautiful countryside and its amazing scenery.


At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 40-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking through wet soil, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Wear warm, comfortable clothing in layers with a weatherproof jacket and sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes.
