An Arctic Vacation: Cruising Siberia

Discover one-of-a-kind adventures and untouched destinations on an Arctic cruise to Siberia

When packing for your expedition cruise, bring lightweight, long-sleeved shirts and sweaters for layering.
Have you ever traveled to a place where nature is untouched by man? Have you sailed somewhere few humans have even been? The expansive region of Siberia along the Sea of Okhotsk is just such a place – and this incredible Arctic cruise from Zegrahm Expeditions is one of the only ways to experience it.

Along the Journey – The Pristine Nature and Exotic Wildlife of a Siberia Cruise
Alaska may seem wild – but an overnight in Anchorage only starts your 19-day Siberian cruise journey into the unknown. A flight to Petropavlovsk brings you into Russia, where you’ll explore one of the region’s oldest towns, before stepping aboard your cruise ship, the Caledonian Sky. Among the first sights on your journey: the 40 volcanoes in the Pacific Ring of Fire; bears and birds in the nearly uninhabited Utkholokskiy National Park; and the tiny town of Okhotsk – one of the first settlements in the region. Along the voyage, you’ll search out whales and puffins by Zodiac, and explore pristine Siberian forests and coasts that have been totally isolated from civilization.

But the adventure cruise isn’t over yet. Explore a remote island wildlife sanctuary that was previously off-limits to visitors. Join naturalists to discover huge flocks of nesting seabirds. Spot gray whales, northern fur seals, Arctic foxes, and brown bears. Discover the culture of indigenous peoples, and explore the historic port city of Otaru, Hokkaido Island, Japan, before ending your journey in Sapporo.

As You Sail – Life Onboard

The all-suite Caledonian Sky is more than just a base for explorers on this voyage. The spacious cruise ship maintains an intimate feel, carrying only 100 passengers through Siberia’s riches. In between adventures, keep an eye out for wildlife from the enclosed panoramic viewing deck, or relax to the tune of piano music in the lounge. When the weather permits, enjoy a meal on the rear sun deck – and if it the temperature drops, curl up in the library with a good book.

Back in your suite, enjoy ocean views and your own sitting room. You’ll need the rest, before you’re headed back out into the wild on the ship’s fleet of Zodiacs.
