Tour Overview

Dawn is born in a far northeastern region of Eurasia - Chukotka. Our journey starts from the very heart of Chukotka – it’s administrative centre Anadyr. Moving along the northeastern part of Eurasia, we will explore the unique region of Chukotka, where time seems to have stopped. Then going through the Bering Strait we will cross the Arctic polar circle. As the ship enters the waters of the Arctic Ocean we will reach the famous natural reserve of Wrangel Island. Wrangel Island is a true museum of arctic flora and fauna. There are many times when it is possible for you to see walruses during this trip. Besides, Wrangel Island is a favorite "maternity house" for polar bears. This brings us a chance to see small white bears.Our way goes through the places where whales feed themselves and thousands of birds gather in colonies. Wrangel Island is the place where arctic flora is most diverse. It has the richest multitude of "cold-resistant" plants. Furthermore you will get acquainted with the culture of local people and make your way through the legendary Bering Strait.
