Discover the Wild Siberian Coast aboard the Kapitan Khlebnikov


This expedition cruise along the wild north Siberian coast reveals a world of spouting whales, enormous bird colonies, walrus haul-outs, and native villages. Aboard the Kapitan Khlebnikov, you’ll navigate from Russia through the Bering Strait to Wrangel Island, a treasure trove of Arctic biodiversity and well known for its polar bear population. You may catch many glimpses of this magnificent animal as well as walrus, reindeer, snow geese, and migratory bird species that nest here in the brief Arctic summer. The islands’ human histories are fascinating as well, and your expert expedition team lends insight to the stupendous landscapes and fantastic wildlife encounters you enjoy.
