High Arctic Odyssey: Remote Russian Archipelagos

Summary

One of Earth’s last regions to be discovered, and the newest destination in Quark Expeditions’ portfolio, the High Russian Arctic is a place of mystery, beauty and wonder. On this stirring voyage along Russia’s ice-draped coastlines, we invite you to become one of the first passengers to visit this little-known region and encounter sights rarely seen by even the most intrepid adventurers. From the breathtaking glaciers of Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land to the stark, secluded islands of the icy Kara Sea, the remarkable features of this isolated wilderness will leave you awed and inspired. An incredible 22-day journey that will take you to far-flung landscapes unlike anything you’ve ever witnessed, High Arctic Odyssey is exclusively designed to allow you to maximize your time exploring these pristine environments, appreciate the rich and dramatic polar history of these faraway destinations, and, especially, increase your chances of observing the region’s diverse and magnificent wildlife, such as whales, seals, muskox, walruses and polar bears. If conditions allow, this itinerary will also include Severnaya Zemlya, the last major territorial discovery on Earth. Come aboard and venture to one of the most remote corners of the globe with the most experienced expedition team in the industry.
