Chukotka


Chukotka is a place of unique, authentic nature. These is an opportunity to enjoy the lakes and rivers rich with sparkling fish scales, herds of deer and peacefully burning bonfires of Chukchi shepherds, walrus rookeries and whales! Chukotka is situated right at the junction of two continents and two oceans. No other region in Russia spreads at the same time on the coast of two oceans or three seas at once.
Chukotka is separated by the narrow Bering Strait from Alaska. That is why there is a constant migration of terrestrial and marine animals. The most cold-resistant plants grow here. At the beginning of summer, more than 20 thousand gray whales included in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species are recorded in the Bering and Chukchi Seas in the eastern part of the Pacific Ocean.
Brave travelers in Chukotka await a lot of vivid impressions and unique experiences. No trains run there, there are short summers and long polar nights. Here one can get acquainted with a various fauna and unique natural wonders: chozenia groves, hot springs, unforgettable stone sculptures–kekurs; watch the migration of sea giants–whales and admire the aurora borealis.
Local flora embraces more than 370 species of plants, which is significantly more than the flora of any island of equalsize in the Arctic zone. Many species among plants are endemic and rare.
Chukotka is an amazing land that has managed to preserve life and the ability to flourish in the harsh polar conditions. During the short northern summer, in permafrost conditions, a true miracle happens there year by year– a real riot of nature revival, conquering people with its outstanding beauty. Chukotka will gladly share its fragile Arctic world with a traveler and tell one secrets of an unknown land.
