What to expect from the trip?
Chukotka is the most remote and hardly accessible region of Russia. Beacause of it remotness, Chukotka's wildlife is still untouched and purely wild!
We have designed this very special tour in cooperation with Beringia National Park, the largest and the most important national park in Chukotka
Our destination, Providence, is the most unique place in Chukotka. Only here the traveller can see the majestic fjords and enormous mountains and make a "drive on the moon" in our large ATV vechicle, dive into hot springs and see the whale within touching distance.
The accommodation will be organised on the Berigia's research base in Pengingey fjord. We will see large colonies of birds, including horned puffins, visit the large walrus rookery in Arakamchechen island, will stand one meter from the feeding gray whale in Chaplina cape, feed the ground squirrel, meet seals and other magnificent dwellers of Russian Arctic. We will also meet local Chuckchi and Inuit and get into their unique culture on hunting.
During the whole trip, we will be accompanied by the experienced ranger of Beringia National Park.
