Next summer join AIA lecturer and host Ted Goebel, an expert on the origins of the First Americans, on an extraordinary voyage to the Bering Strait, separating Alaska and Russia by just 51 miles. Enjoy the comfort of a luxurious expedition ship while exploring remote areas far away from tourist routes.
Begin your epic adventure in Anchorage, then embark your 76-cabin ship in picturesque Seward, cruising through the Kenai Fjords National Park with its calving glaciers and breaching whales. Kodiak Island is home to the massive Kodiak brown bears plus several species of salmon and 250 bird species, including bald eagles. Then explore the Aleutian archipelago and the Pribilof Islands, spotting the abundant and diverse wildlife such as Tufted puffins and walrus.
Isolated and accessible only by special permission until recently, few travelers have ever visited East Siberia, one of the world’s great wilderness regions, home to the indigenous Siberian peoples. Covered in ice for most of the year, the land wakes up during the brief summer to reveal its unique flora and fauna amidst volcanoes and hot springs. Admire more marine birds and whales as well as the lush tundra dappled with wildflowers.
Under construction in Finland and launching in October 2021, Minerva is designed specifically for exploration cruising. Enjoy the luxurious amenities of this new, state-of-the-art expedition ship with just 76 staterooms and suites for 152 guests. The ship’s size; limited guest capacity; superb accommodations and public spaces, facilities, and services; advanced technical and mechanical systems; and a complement of experienced officers and crew make Minerva the ship of choice for exploring Earth’s remote places in safety and comfort.
