Russia - Arctic Travel Tours & Trips

The Arctic Fox
Explore the harsh, pristine paradise of Franz Josef Land
Circumnavigate the North Pole
Helicopter sightseeing in the Arctic
Murmansk to the Pole
Hot Air Ballooning at the North Pole
  • Skirting Russia’s northern face is an adventure like nothing, or nowhere, else. The names alone are enough to start dreaming of the frozen arctic’s white wilds:; the White Sea; Franz Josef Land; the tundra nomads of the Chukotka Peninsula. Here, in the land of the midnight sun, exploration is simply wondrous, by turns meditatively serene and starkly savage, where days crunching through thick pack ice mixes with meetings with indigenous reindeer herders. Zodiacs and helicopters give you the best views of the wildlife and natural grandeur. As inaccessible and hostile as the planet gets, and undoubtedly as beautiful.
