In August 2011, we joined the ‘Spirit of Enderby’ to travel northwards, through the Bering Strait, to Wrangel Island, an important Nature Reserve in the Arctic Ocean. It is home to a number of endangered species including walrus and polar bear.
Sailing southwards again, we travelled through the Bering Straits, across Anadyroskiy Bay and eventually to the Kamchatka Peninsula. On the way we took the opportunity to explore the coast and the Commander Islands before reaching the largest town in the region, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. South from here we travelled further south along the Kuril Islands until we reached Sakhlin and the end of our journey.
