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.

    • Visit Eurasia’s largest Arctic Archipelago, the striking and diverse Novaya Zemlya.
    • Get up close to the stunning glacier of Inostrantseva Bay.
    • Search for polar bears, walrus and other wildlife in Franz Josef Land.
    • Explore the extraordinary mix of Eastern and Western influenced architecture of Helsinki.

    We get it – travel’s a big decision. It’s not every day you fly across the world to wander the souks of Marrakech or enjoy a dreamy Angkor sunrise. But for us, it’s been our everyday for the past three decades (whew, we’re old). Let’s just say we know what travellers really want: a balance of inclusions and free time, a mix of classic highlights and local secrets you won’t find on Google. And of course, an authentic real life experience.
