CHUKOTKA -

The Chukotka peninsula is Russia's and Asia's most northeastern tip and is a truly remote and isolated territory. It is not accessible by car as there are no regular roads leading there from the neighboring Magadan Oblast, only bumpy winter tracks running through tundra and used by convoys of heavy 6WD trucks for delivering cargo in winter time while the boggy terrain is solidly frozen.

The Russian oil tycoon Roman Abramovich - the current Chelsea Football Club owner and the former governor of Chukotka - poured a lot of money into the region thus bringing drastic positive changes to the region and making himself the most revered person among the local population. Chukotka is almost solely inhabited by indigenous people - the Chukchi.

For a traveler of a truly inquisitive nature I recommend to use services of the Heritage-Expeditions - New Zealand's award winning expedition travel company that specializes in worldwide natural history small group expeditions.

Natural History Travel Expeditions

Taking part in one of their cruises gives one a unique opportunity to visit not only mainland Chukotka but also the Commander Islands and the Wrangel Island rarely visited by regular tourists.
