Tour Overview

For certain, all of us heard the expression “I am with you even in the ends of the Earth”. In fact, no one has ever seen this “end of the Earth”. One could have only guessed or imagined where it could be situated. Some of us could have pictured the “Mountains of Mordor” from “The Lord of the Rings” movie, where the whole world rests behind (lays beyond) and there is nothing ahead except for the fiery lava.  Others dreamed of careless and peaceful serenity like when one lays down on his back, closes his eyes and forgets about everyday fussiness that’s troubling him. “But where one can actually find a place like this?” – you may ask.
How is it possible to get there? Should one go by plane or by train? Perhaps, it is necessary to float by ship? The only thing is clear, that’s not an easy thing to reach Cape Dezhnev. Yes, yes, the “end of the Earth” is Cape Dezhnev – the extreme point of Eurasia. And today we propose you to take part in a tour that will blur the boundaries of habitual world and show the contours of the globe.
This tour, unique in its affluence and availability, is meant for fans of active kind of recreation. It offers you an excursion around the administrative centre of Chukotka – city of Anadyr, a flight on a plane, trips on motorboats, a chance to observe the many thousands of bird colonies and marine animals (whales, seals). 
You will make a visit to an abandoned Inuit settlement of Naukan, the easternmost settlement of Eurasia – Uelen, bath in hot springs, watch whale hunting and do many other things. And that is only a small piece of what can be described with words. As they say, you cannot understand what you have not seen, so don’t hesitate to take part in this tour.

Destination: Kamchatka, Chukotka
Would you like to travel with BaikalNature again? Yes!
Kamchatka Coast is a wonderful trip professionally conducted on a seventeen hundred maritime miles of uninhabited coast. Everything topped my expectations: what I saw, the pervasive sense of adventure in the activities, the competence of the team (professional biologists and researchers) and the safety in which all activities were performed. One of my best trips ever.

Ceci a été le cas pour nous le dimanche, avant d'arriver au campement. Heureusement notre guide Andreï a été parfait et notre groupe était homogène pour avoir une
