Join this Russian-American odyssey in Otaru, where we set sail towards Sakhalin Island. Get a history lesson as you tour Victory Square and Glory Square, both dedicated to Russia’s efforts during World War II. Our next stop is a trio of islands – Tyuleniy, Onekotan and Atlasov, join your destination specialist in search of the unique northern fur seal and enjoy incredible volcanic landscapes. As we cross the International Date Line, you’ll arrive at Petropavlovsk – the gateway to the active volcanoes and geysers of the Kamchatka Peninsula, where one of Russia’s indigenous populations, the Koryak people, still live.

Edging into the United States, we’ll stop off at Adak Island in Alaska – a former Cold War military base that’s now eerily abandoned – and then spend a day at sea before reaching Dutch Harbour. Here, uncover more World War II history at concrete bunkers and former gun emplacements, then strike out into the gorgeous Alaskan wilderness. Our tall ship will sail for two days through to Kodiak, admiring the Aleutian chain and Alaskan Peninsula where guests could spot brown bears, bald eagles and whales, before we finish this leg of the adventure in Seward.
