Discover smoking volcanoes and abundant ocean life in Russia’s Far East on our 14-day Sea of Okhotsk Explorer cruise on a boutique ship. This incredible journey starts in Japan among snow-capped peaks and hot springs where snow monkeys bathe, before taking you the world’s least visited islands to explore the lush landscape. Here in warm waters heated by geothermal activity we see northern fur seals and steller sea lions with their pups. Birdlife is prolific from tufted puffins to peregrine falcons as well as rarer seabirds. This remarkable journey takes you past World War II strongholds to active fumaroles and hot lagoons for an unforgettable voyage of discovery.
