Lindblad Expeditions is introducing three new itineraries to the Russian Far East that will begin sailing in 2019. Sailing roundtrip from Alaskan ports, the 13-to-22 day sailings explore one of the most rugged and wildlife-rich regions of the planet. Experiences include spotting coastal brown bears from Katmai National Park to the Kamchatka Peninsula, and the awe of the abundance and variety of marine mammals and seabirds from the Aleutians to the Commander Islands. Meet indigenous artists and experience the rich culture of the people from the region.
