This is Alaska on steroids – Rarely visited Arctic and sub-arctic regions of far western Alaska and far eastern Russia meet to become one of the world’s wildest, and most inhospitable regions, teeming with wildlife, often found nowhere else. Hundreds of migratory bird species, marine and land mammals, endless sunshine during summer make these areas incredible to visit. Only a few expeditions venture here each year.
