The region has remarkable wildlife from towering bird cliffs to grey whales, orcas and humpback whales being the most commonly seen, and the majestic polar bear which is frequently spotted further north in the remote islands and archipelagos like Wrangel Island or Franz Josef Land.
There are many ways to make your journey unforgettable! Choose to go in a Zodiac or kayaking among abundant wildlife. Drop anchor near Franz Josef Land archipelago and set foot where you could enjoy tundra walks and spectacular bird cliffs or visit the young city of Murmansk founded in 1916 and the largest one in the Arctic Circle.
Travelling in the Russian Arctic provides outstanding views, especially when you cross the Barents Sea and observe majestic mountain ranges on the horizon. The remote islands and archipelagos in the Arctic Circle are breath-taking. Take the time to contemplate the surroundings in this isolated and unspoilt location.
