Jewels of the Russian Arctic: Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya

Russia by land is exquisite, but have you thought about taking in this mammoth country by sea? An Arctic adventure in Russia will see you embark on a voyage around the archipelagos of Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land, like a true polar expeditioner. For the nature lovers out there, polar bear encounters are a real possibility and there will be plenty of opportunities to spot walrus, seals, whales and wide variety of seabirds – both nesting on the icy cliffs and soaring above your ship. You’ll also get up close and personal with spectacular glaciers, fjords and icebergs – so have your camera ready.
