We plan to spend the following days exploring the remote, mountainous archipelago of Novaya Zemlya (or New Land). Bounded by spectacular glaciers, jagged peaks and rich in wildlife and history, these rarely visited isles consist of two large islands separated by the narrow Matochkin Strait and a myriad of smaller islands. Discover a northern Arctic desert landscape on Severny Island and new landscapes along the coastline as we look to explore different landing sites which may include Cape Spory, the Oransky Islands, Navalok, Cape Zhelaniya, Russkaya Gavan and Inostrantseva Bay where breath-catching panoramic views of pristine Arctic wilderness can be enjoyed. Rightly regarded for its unrestrained high Arctic beauty and as a wildlife haven, during our explorations here we will look to make several landings, Zodiac cruise imposing cliffs, glaciers and shores looking for Harp, Ringed and Bearded Seals, Polar Bears, reindeer, Arctic Fox, walrus haulouts, whales and a number of bird species including Peregrine Falcon, Tundra Redpoll, Snowy Owl, Guillemots and Puffins.
