Board the ship in Alaska, before charting course towards Russia. Sail the strait discovered by the Danish explorer V. Jonassen Bering at the beginning of the 18th century. This 83-km-long natural border connecting the Bering Sea to the Chukchi Sea is used at the end of summer every year by numerous Pacific walruses, the emblematic species of the Far North. On the eastern tip of Russia, view the vast expanses of the colorful tundra of Chukotka, one of the world’s most isolated regions. Next, reach Kamchatka, a peninsula of volcanic landscapes, where you may have the chance to observe the Kamchatka brown bear and many sea birds and marine mammals: northern fulmars, guillemots, puffins, cormorants, Steller's eiders, Aleutian terns, Steller's sea eagle, Steller's sea lions and other species of sea lions, and whales.

Day 1 Flight Seattle to Nome | Alaska | Embark

Located along the Bering Strait at the westernmost point of Alaska, Nome offers the rustic charm of a former gold-mining town, set in the middle of magnificent wilderness. As you weave in and out of the brightly colored houses, you will discover the pioneering legacy that still marks local traditions. Fishing, reindeer rearing, sled-racing... People here live from their manual labor. The surrounding plains provide stunning vantage points for observing Arctic fauna.

*Included: Flight Seattle/Nome + transfers + Flight Petropavlovsk/Seoul

Day 2-3 At Sea

  • Ship
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 2 Dinners
During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness center. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.

Day 4-6 Chukotka

  • Ship
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
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 colors 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.

Day 7-14 Kamchatka Peninsula

  • Ship
  • 8 Breakfasts, 8 Lunches, 8 Dinners
The Kamchatka Peninsula evokes the power of wild and preserved nature. Dotted with over 200 volcanos, making up a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this “land of ice and fire” stretches over more than 1,000 km between the Sea of Okhotsk and the Bering Sea. Its vast forests and prairies, islands, rivers and wetlands fed by glaciers located inland are home to many tens of thousands of Kamchatka brown bears, and rich biodiversity: the largest variety of salmon in the world and many sea birds and marine mammals (northern fulmars, guillemots, puffins, cormorants, Steller's eiders, Aleutian terns, Steller's sea eagle, Steller's sea lions and other species of sea lions, and whales).

Day 15 Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky | Disembark | Flight to Seoul

  • 1 Breakfast
Petropavlovsk, the oldest town in the Russian Far East, was established in October 1740, when the ships Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul, captained by Vitus Jonassen Bering, the Danish explorer working for the Russian Navy, first entered the bay. The Military Glory Museum, found in the town center, is the most important in all of northern Russia. Keep your camera at the ready, though, as nearby is the picturesque Petrovskaya Hill, which also has some surprises in store for you - don’t forget to admire the sumptuous views across the Bay of Avacha from its summit. The bay’s circular shape creates a natural protection against the impetuous wind, all the while providing ships with easy access into port.
