What to expect
Chukotka is the most remote region of Russia and an iconic place for those who are in love with the Arctic and wildlife. This is the real High Arctic.
In summer, walruses bask under the Arcitic sun, polar bears hunt for seals, arctic foxes try to steal eggs from birds nestled in giant bazaars on sheer cliffs.
We will visit the most iconic places in Chukotka - Cape Chaplin, where gray whales approach the shore, the whaler's village of Lorino, Itygran Island with the famous Whale Alley, Cape Dezhnev - the easternmost point of Eurasia, Cape Kenisken, where up to one hundred thousand walruses can occur and Kolyuchin Island, where you can see polar bears who have chosen an abandoned weather station for being their temporary home.
The waters washing the coast of Chukotka are plowed by mysterious bowhead, gray and humpback whales. Whales, as always, will be one of the most important points of our program.
If you are a romantic, a dreamer, an explorer or just a wildlife lover, welcome aboard our ocean yacht Basileus, which will allow us to comfortably spend two and a half weeks on the ocean and safely return to port.
Traditionally, on our trip, we will pay the most attention to interaction with animals.

Small group and flexible itinerary
We go in a small group on our own ship, and we can fully control the route and adjust it in accordance with the wishes of the guests. If one wants to take longer pictures of walruses on the colony observe the whales passing by, he can always do it.
The yacht Basilevs accommodates 12 people, taking into account the crew and guides, so we get a small group of 7 guests, and everyone can be solely with nature, take plenty of pictures of animals and landscapes, and get an individual approach in everything.
