Russia Wildlife

The coastal wildlife of Russia is rich and diverse. In the East, the big Kamcahtka brown bear is often seen and is protected within nature reserves. Here can also be found massive haul-outs of Pacific walrus, grey and other whales, sea otters and several species of seal, including in the Sea of Okhotsk, the rare and beautiful ribbon seal.

In the Arctic, the king is the polar bear and these can be seen in Franz Josef Land and Wrangel island.

Birdlife abounds everywhere and there are a particularly high number of species to be seen in the far east of both land and sea birds.

Activities & Adventure

All visits to the Russian Arctic and far east are ship based, so activities are what is included in the programmes, such as walking, Zodiac excursions and kayaking. Nevertheless, there are opportunities for other activities pre or post expeditions.

For Russian Arctic sailings starting in Spitsbergen, there is a range of options for spending extra time in Longyearbyen including dog-sledding and ice-caving. In the far east there are a range of sightseeing and day trip options available.
