Russian Arctic – 2 for 1 Deal! Prices from US$4,445 (including discount)
2 for 1 Discount on 14 day Novaya Zemlya and Franz Josef Land ‘Voyage to the End of the Earth’ departing 8 – 21 September, 2012.
With only one other voyage being run to this region in 2012, Aurora Expeditions is the only ‘small ship’ tour operator visiting the undiscovered region of Novaya Zemlya in the Russian Arctic in 2012.
An area shrouded in secrecy, the ability to visit the far reaches of the Russian Arctic is almost impossible to most. Akademik Shokalskiy carries a maximum of 54 passengers, providing intimate exploration of this region. The Novaya Zemlya archipelago comprises one large island and many small, stretching 1000km in an elongated crescent between the Barents and Kara seas. A veritable feast of wildlife and history, it is the easternmost point in Europe and remains one of Russia’s most restricted regions; which is why so few operators have permission to travel there. Whereas, Franz Josef Land is an archipelago of 191 ice covered islands, the planet’s last major landmass to be discovered and the modern day realm of the polar bear. This spectacular voyage promises to deliver adventure by the bucket-load.
One night’s accommodation in Murmansk pre-voyage (7 September 2012) is included in the voyage price, along with airport transfers and a Murmansk city tour.
Prices start from US$4,445 (including discount)
