Berths available on expedition cruises with Naturetrek Tailormade!

Here at Naturetrek Tailormade we are always excited by lesser-known locations, and as more of the globe opens up to the wildlife enthusiast, previously hard to reach destinations with diverse wildlife have established names for themselves in the world of natural history. Expedition cruising offers the chance to visit such far-flung places as the Far East of Russia and Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand, and if you’re looking for a Tailormade adventure of an alternative kind these may be for you.  

We are now pleased to offer berths on The Spirit of Enderby. This ice-strengthened ex-research vessel carries a maximum of 50 passengers and is perfectly suited for expedition cruising, providing a comfortable base from which to discover the wonderful flora and fauna of your cruise destination. We have chosen a couple of our favourites below.

Kamchatka and Chukotka

Whether for the chance to see breeding Spoon-billed Sandpipers in a colony only recently discovered, or to explore the tundra, fjords and rivers of this little visited area of the world, a cruise to Russia’s Far East is sure to be varied. Mammals are also well represented with possibilities for Humpback Whales, Brown Bears and even Beluga. With luck and perseverance, the characterful Pacific Walrus should also make an appearance. Cultural tours in Moscow, and birding trips in Petropavlovsk might also be of interest to those looking to extend their adventure.

Prices from £8,895 per person including domestic flights.

Praise for Kamchatka: ‘The expedition staff were very professional and there were plenty of opportunities for land based activities. All our objectives were realised and we saw more than we anticipated.’
