Circumpolar Expeditions announces with regret that due to Covid 19 restrictions and the U.S. State Department advisories, our tours and travel to Chukotka and the Russian Far East will be suspended for the summer of 2022.

We plan to resume those tours and travel in the spring and summer of 2023.

There are endless reasons why you need to explore Alaska’s vast wilderness. Dubbed as the Last Frontier state, Alaska is home to breathtaking mountains, fabled fjords, glaciers, rare wildlife, charming mining towns and settlements of local communities who have lived there for hundreds of years. It is a place that is largely untouched by human development, allowing nature to flourish like it always has. When it comes to natural beauty and unexpected encounters with rare fauna, there is no place quite like Alaska. Winter sees the state covered in a white blanket of snow, while spring and summer usher in the colorful brilliance of flowers and lush foliage. It is also a place where you will experience native history and culture in all its glory. If you wish to explore this state and witness its many attractions and wonders, a trip to Alaska with Circumpolar Expeditions is just what you need.
