  • Day 4: PROVIDENIYA, RUSSIA

    Across the Bering Strait from Alaska, which it almost touches and can be glimpsed when the weather is fine, the town of Provideniya seems to keep a watchful eye over ships heading for the East Siberian Sea. Nestled against mountains with peaks of up to 2,000 m, Provideniya is the gateway to the Chukotka Peninsula, a polar region as yet unknown to the general public, with striking landscapes and a primitive beauty like no other.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 5: CHUKOTKA

    Located between the glacial Arctic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, on the eastern point of Russia, Chukotka is one of the world’s most isolated regions. Made up of vast plains of tundra, which take on magnificent colours in summer, the region is the kingdom of the Chukchi, a nomad people that has now settled. Present on these lands for millennia, they are one of Eastern Siberia’s oldest communities and still live from hunting and fishing today.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 6: KOLYUCHIN ISLAND

    The northern coast of Chukotka shelters a small inhabited island going by the name of Kolyuchin. During your visit to these parts, you will be able to observe, on the western edge, a former Russian scientific research station, now abandoned. Not far from these buildings rise one of the most spectacular bird cliffs in the Arctic: puffins, gulls, guillemots, cormorants, geese, sandpipers, loons and sandhill cranes all rub feathers here. Walruses, grey whales and polar bears are also part of the décor, as if they wanted to fully complete this typically Arctic tableau in which the tundra, which covers the entire island, welcomes a vast plain dotted with shallow lakes.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 7: WRANGEL ISLAND

    Welcome to Wrangel, the most important hotspot of Arctic biodiversity. Situated between the East Siberian Sea and the Chukchi Sea, the island was named after the Russian explorer Ferdinand von Wrangel. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the island is a rare, precious and very ancient ecosystem with unique vegetation, as well as an exceptional fauna: it is home to the majestic polar bear and the vast majority of the Russian Arctic’s walrus population. The island also holds traces of the last mammoths and is home to several endemic species.
