DAY 05 - KORSAKOV, RUSSIA

KORSAKOV, RUSSIA

The Russian city of Korsakov is nestled on the southern end of Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Okhotsk, just north of Japan’s Hokkaido Island. Korsakov is a gateway to the capital of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, where the architectural style recalls an earlier Japanese presence. The Sakhalin Regional Museum, with elements of European and Japanese design, is the best example of this east-meets-west atmosphere and worth a visit. Other attractions include the Church of St. Nicholas, Lenin Square, and more.

DAY 06 - TYULENIY ISLAND, RUSSIA

MORNING

TYULENIY ISLAND, RUSSIA

A nature lover’s wonderland in the sparkling Sea of Okhotsk, little Tyuleniy Island is a breeding ground for northern fur seals and Steller sea lions. Not surprisingly, its name translates to “seal” in Russian. During the summer months, the rocky island is virtually blanketed in sea mammals barking, bellowing and jostling for the best locations. Other wildlife species literally flock to the island as well, including common murres and kittiwakes.

DAY 07 - YANKICHA AND SREDNEGO ISLANDS, RUSSIA

An island of jaw-dropping beauty, tiny Yankicha is the tip of an extinct volcano and one of two islets that form Ushishir Island in the middle of the Russian Kurils. The centerpiece of this lush, green gem of an island is its steep-walled caldera that becomes a glistening lagoon during high tide. Its cliffs and grassy slopes attract scores of birds and a few foxes. Srednego, a speck of an island to the north, is known as a breeding ground for northern fur seals.

DAY 08 - PARAMUSHIR AND ATLASOVA ISLANDS, RUSSIA

MORNING

PARAMUSHIR AND ATLASOVA ISLANDS, RUSSIA

Off the southern tip of Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula, in the Sea of Okhotsk, are Paramushir and Atlasov islands, part of the volcanic Kuril chain. Paramushir, the largest of the northern Kurils, exudes a natural beauty partly blemished by the presence of abandoned whaling stations. Sea otters are often spotted in its pristine waters. Also visible from its shores is nearby Atlasov, a speck of an island majestically crowned by the Alaid Volcano, the tallest volcano in the Kuril Islands.

DAY 09 - RUSSKAYA/TIKHIRKA BAY AND CAPE KEKURNY

RUSSKAYA/TIKHIRKA BAY AND CAPE KEKURNY

The breathtaking southeastern coast of Russia’s lush, volcanic Kamchatka Peninsula is dotted with several cozy inlets of the Pacific Ocean. One of the most stunning is Russkaya, a pristine fjord-like bay known for its rookery of Steller sea lions and occasional visits from orca whales. Nearby tiny Tikhirka Bay, to the north, and Cape Kekurnyy, to the south, are magnets for an array of wildlife, including sea otters, spotted seals, Steller’s sea eagles, and more.

MORNING

ZHUPANOVA RIVER, RUSSIA

One of the world’s great rivers, the Zhupanova lies on the eastern side of the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East. Winding through a scenic landscape of volcanoes, meadows and forests, this gorgeous waterway is renowned for its abundance of salmon, rainbow trout and char. Not surprisingly, brown bears are often spotted along the shore, and seals may be seen lounging on sandbars. For bird-watchers, the enormous Steller’s sea eagle may be the best attraction of all.

DAY 11 - MORZOVAYA BAY, RUSSIA

MORZOVAYA BAY, RUSSIA

A magical scenery of emerald-green mountains dappled with snow welcomes you to serene Morzovaya Bay. Nestled snuggly on the eastern shores of Russia’s volcano-dotted Kamchatka Peninsula, north of the city of Petropavlovsk and south of the Zhupanova River, this cozy crystalline inlet of the Pacific Ocean is a nature lover’s paradise. Brown bears and seals as well as Steller’s sea eagles may be spotted in this isolated oasis.

The surrounding waters also attract an abundance of wildlife, including orca whales and Steller sea lions.

DAY 15 - OTARU, JAPAN

MORNING

OTARU, JAPAN

A small harbor city, Otaru once played a pivotal role as a fishing and trade port, its main canal still a beautifully preserved representation of that era.
