The holy grail of many an Arctic traveller is to see polar bears in their natural habitat. These majestic animals can be found in most parts of the Siberian Arctic, but getting to them is much easier in certain areas than in others. We offer trips in Taymyr and Chukotka specifically geared towards polar bear spotting. In the Nenets Autonomous Okrug and in Yakutia we offer trips not specifically themed on polar bears but where you may, if lucky, see them as an added bonus.
