Stunning pictures from a Russian Arctic cruise

A Russian Arctic cruise, otherwise known as the Russian Far North, is a voyage that that will give you plenty of goose bumps and adventure.

The Russian Arctic is Russia’s extreme northwest and cruises usually sail round trip from Tromso, Norway. Unlike other Arctic cruises, Russian Arctic cruises turn east into the Barents Sea and the White Sea before returning to Norway.

The Russian Arctic is largely ignored despite being such a compelling and beautiful region.

Cruises run from June to August and passengers can expect very, very cold weather.
