Sea Expedition
to Chukotka
Duration: 17 days
Group: 8 people
We will go from Anadyr to Vankarem sailing around the eastmost point of Eurasia, Cape Dezhnyov, and back
A thousand miles under sail
Chukotka, located at the edge of Eurasia, is the most inaccessible region of Russia.
We suggest you explore it in the most comfortable way, that is, sailing.
You'll dive into a true Arctic expedition
Arctic expedition with pristine nature, sheer cliffs, rookeries of walruses and seals, and, surely, with kings of the North — polar bears. More than that: sometimes our boat will be accompanied by whales!

This is not a fairy-tale — this is an expedition to Chukotka with RUSARC!

Join us!
