Discover pristine islands and coasts on a near circumnavigation of the Bering Sea

Embark on a voyage of discovery in one of the planet’s most rugged and wildlife-rich regions that’s seldom explored. Covering more than 3,800 nautical miles over 22 days, you’ll have the luxury of time to linger in the Aleutian Islands among the great variety of whales that come here in the summer. You’ll be able to venture along the rugged coast of Russia to the gateway to the Arctic to see colonies of millions of seabirds and wild and pristine rivers and to meet some of the people of the area to learn about their ways of life. Throughout you’ll see wildlife galore, from marine mammals in the Aleutian Islands including sea otters, northern fur seals, and Steller sea lions to coastal brown bears in Katmai National Park and along the Kamchatka Peninsula and much, much more.

  • Watch brown bears digging for clams or fishing for salmon in Katmai National Park

  • See Pacific walrus, northern fur seals, gray, humpback, and sperm whales, sea otters, and Steller sea lions

  • Marvel at cliffs crowded with millions of seabirds—from horned and tufted puffins to murres and rare whiskered auklets

  • Explore the wild and pristine Zhupanova River, the legendary flagship waterway of Kamchatka, as you search for Steller’s sea eagles and their nests

  • Visit a Koryak village in northern Kamchatka, and Vitus Bering’s gravesite in the Commander Islands
