What to expect
This is the expedition to the Russian Arctic. We sail to the Matveev island, which are home to hundreds of walruses! We will observe the rookeries and get to know the giants of the Arctic personally. A significant part of our expedition will be devoted to walruses.
Our next stop is Vaygach island. We will visit a hermit who has been living alone in the tundra for over 30 years, we will take a walk through the tundra to reach lakes full of arctic char and try some fishing.
Next, we will reach Novaya Zemlya, an archipelago famous for its large number of polar bears. We will spend several days on Novaya Zemlya in search of polar bears, snowy owls and reindeer.
It will be a real polar expedition!
In addition to exciting adventures, educational programs are waiting for you. Our guides will tell you about the amazing world of the Arctic, about whales and seals, you will learn how icebergs are formed, and, of course, about the main characters of our expedition - walruses and polar bears!
Why sailing yacht?
Why is it better to go on a yacht than on a cruise ship?
The main thing about of our expedition is that 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 to reach our goals. If someone wants to shoot walruses or seals longer, or watch whales passing by, he can always do it.
Everyone will be able to be solely with nature, take plenty of pictures of animals and get an individual approach in everything. In addition, each guest will be able to get acquainted with the structure of the ship, stand at the helm, turn the winches and feel like a real sailor!
But the most important thing in any ship is the crew. We are one hundred percent sure that the ship's crew will be able to provide not only a safe and comfortable navigation, but will also help us in fulfilling our most complex and ambitious tasks!
