A Premiere Russian Voyage

Dutch liner Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has added a unique 17-day journey through Russia’s Sea of Okhotsk this summer, which cruises through the rarely traveled Kuril, Shantar, and Malminskie islands and more, thanks to the vessel’s top ice class ranking, shallow draft, and adept maneuverability.

Departing from Japan’s northwest city of Otaru onboard the 184-passenger MS Hanseatic, guests will have opportunities to explore these remote islands on more than a dozen excursions on inflatable boats to shore, where brown bears and birds of prey such as the gyrfalcon and Steller’s sea eagle can be seen against a backdrop of snowcapped volcanoes, dense forests, and geyser-spotted tundras. Other excursions include helicopter rides over the remote Valley of Geysers, one of the largest geyser fields in the world. The $10,832 debut voyage takes place June 13–30 and concludes in Kamchatka Peninsula’s capital city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, which is inaccessible by roads.
