Setting sail from Anadyr

Way out in Russia's remote northeast sits the city of Anadyr, capital of the Chukotka autonomous region. Life here isn't as gloomy as you might think - buildings are painted in bright colours to keep spirits up during the harsh winter months, and the city enjoyed significant investment under the governorship of Roman Abramovich, the famous oligarch who now owns Chelsea Football Club. There are some interesting exhibits in the Chukotka Museum, including carvings made from walrus ivory and mammoth tusk, while beyond the city limits lies the bleak expanse of the tundra.

Arriving in Tromsø

Tromsø is often referred to as the Gateway to the Arctic. Its beauty astonishes new visitors with its magnificent views over the Tromsø strait. Tromsø's location, well within the Arctic Circle, means the summer months are lit by the Midnight Sun, a compensation for some rather long, dark winters. It is a wonderful city to explore on foot, wandering along the streets with their multi-coloured wooden houses. A must see is the amazing architecture of the Arctic cathedral, or perhaps take the cable car up to Mount Storsteinen (1382ft) for a fantastic view.

Our tip

Visit during June or July to see the Midnight Sun - take the cable car for a better view (we were impressed that it runs until past midnight, but do check).

What we love

This is the coolest expedition operation yet. On board is the ultimate in luxury at the Crystal level we know so well, but even more exciting is what is going to happen off the ship, as they navigate first year ice in the polar regions and follow the route of migrating whales.

A wealth of extraordinary toys including submarines, helicopters and remote operated vehicles will ensure that a Crystal Yacht Expedition creates the most extraordinary memories even for the most jaded of travellers.
