The beauty of a pod of whales and hospitality of a welcoming dance are never to be forgotten. The widest of all the Arctic Ocean shelf seas, the Bering is a rare chance to witness nature in all her raiments. Beautiful tundra walks in almost infinite daylight, cultural demonstrations, and exceptional birding will make this voyage a life changing experience.

Day 1 — Nome (Alaska), USA / At Sea (cross Date Line, lose a day)

Nome is located on the edge of the Bering Sea, on the southwest side of the Seward Peninsula. Unlike other towns which are named for explorers, heroes or politicians, Nome was named as a result of a 50 year-old spelling error. In the 1850's an officer on a British ship off the coast of Alaska noted on a manuscript map that a nearby prominent point was not identified. He wrote "? Name" next to the point.

Day 2 — Provideniya, Russian Federation

Provideniya is a former Soviet military port at the southern limit of the Arctic ice pack. With slightly less than 2,000 inhabitants, many of whom are Yupik, it is the largest town and administrative center of the Providensky District. Started as a depot for the Northeast Passage traffic, it now is a port of entry to the Russian Far East and since the decline of the Soviet Union eco-tourism has boosted the local economy. The town has a technical school and a fascinating museum with interesting and well-presented exhibits about the natural history and wildlife of the region.

Day 3 — At Sea

Days at sea are the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and catch up with what you’ve been meaning to do. So whether that is whale watching from the Observatory Lounge or writing home to your loved ones, these blue sea days are the perfect balance to busy days spent exploring shore side.

Day 5 — Anastasiya Bay

A U-shaped bay on the Bering Sea, Anastasia Bay appears to be carved out of the mountainous cliffs that make up the land that surrounds the tundra-like Koryak Mountains in Kamchatka Krai, Russia. The rare visitor comes to the bay hoping to see walruses and seals, and birders search for Slaty-backed Gulls, Pelagic Cormorants, Horned Puffins, Tufted Puffins, Black-legged Kittiwakes, and White Wagtails, White-fronted Geese, Bean Geese and Whooper Swans.

Day 7 — Tymlat (Kamchatka)

Established as a trading post in the mid-19th century, Tymlat is a Koryak village in the Russian Far East. The village is located next to the Tymlat River, which in turn flows into the Bering Sea. Some 500 inhabitants, the majority of Koryak descent, make a living fishing for salmon, navaga (a member of the cod family), and herring. The village is home to the renowned State Koryak folk group “Mengo”.

Day 8 — Yuzhnaya Glubokaya / Lavrova Bay

In Yuzhnaya Glubokaya we can see the ruins of a long-abandoned herring plant and abandoned settlement at the head of the inlet. During a tundra walk through the meadows covered in wildflowers one can usually see bears in the distance. Wild mountain sheep, snow sheep, an extremely rare occurrence, have also been seen on top of a distant pinnacle at a dizzying height. Using semi-worn paths during the hike, one might have to ford rushing rivers, skirt brushy thickets, and clamber over piles of rocks to enter a vast glacial valley to overlook a glorious lake.

Day 9 — Peter Bay / Bogoslav Island

Peter Bay is a small inlet at the foot of the Koryak Mountain range well north of the Kamchatka Peninsula. At the entrance of the bay is a Largha seal haul-out site and a small hidden lagoon flanked by the ocean and the bay. The southern end of the bay has several small lakes that are dammed behind a moraine ridge; the remnant of an ancient glacier. The lakes feed a spectacular waterfall. The western and eastern sides of the bay have steep cliffs that seabirds favor for nesting sites. Their busy comings and goings from nest to ocean feeding grounds punctuate this Far Eastern Russian location.

Six nautical miles south of the entrance to Natalii Bay are the spectacular sea cliffs of Bogoslav Island. The small island rises to 1,400 ft (425 m) above sea level and is a perfect place to spot Pigeon, Brünnich’s, and Common Guillemots, Black-legged Kittiwakes, Harlequin Ducks, Horned Puffins, White Wagtails, Pelagic Cormorants and Slaty-backed Gulls. Walrus can also be seen at a nearby haul-out.

Day 11 — Yttygran Island / Proliv Senyavina (Hot Springs)

Yttygran offers a unique natural history experience on this voyage. An array of bowhead whale bones and rock arrangements is stunning – it is a place of great archaeological importance combined with natural beauty. An early morning landing will add to the magic and mystery of the place due to the soft hues and the muffled light conditions. For the more energetic passengers a hike up the steep nearby hill provides an excellent leg stretch.

To the Proliv Senyavina Hot Springs. We will go ashore by Zodiac, will enter a small lagoon and hike across tundra and some rolling hills to reach a stream with some hot springs. You can choose to either enter a small pool prepared by the local fishermen, or to go into the stream.

Day 13 — Nome (Alaska), United States of America

Nome is located on the edge of the Bering Sea, on the southwest side of the Seward Peninsula. Unlike other towns which are named for explorers, heroes or politicians, Nome was named as a result of a 50 year-old spelling error. In the 1850's an officer on a British ship off the coast of Alaska noted on a manuscript map that a nearby prominent point was not identified. He wrote "? Name" next to the point.
