Day 1

Welcome to the small city of Tromsø, lying above the Arctic Circle and the starting point for your exploration of Russia and the White Sea. Embark Scenic Eclipse where you are welcomed warmly by the crew and the Discovery Team.

Meals included: Dinner
Day 2
North Cape

From the comfort and opulence of the World’s First Discovery Yachts, you’ll experience the remarkable Midnight Sun as you sail towards the North Cape, Europe’s northernmost point and home to millions of seabirds including puffins and gannets. Discover magical Alta, one of the best places on earth to experience the Viking and Sami culture. 
Discovery: Take Scenic Discovery excursions to see the World Heritage-listed rock art of Alta, the largest and richest rock carvings in Northern Europe. Dated at 2,000 to 6,200 years old, the carvings show the life of hunters and fishermen. Board the Zodiacs or kayaks to see a myriad of seabirds.

North Cape

Continue sailing to the North Cape.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 4
Murmansk

The gateway to the Russian Arctic and lying in the land of the Midnight Sun, Murmansk bustles with the energy of a growing port. This is the largest Russian seaport on the Arctic Ocean with a rich naval and military history. In World War II, Murmansk hosted allied convoys while during the Cold War the port was the centre of the Soviet icebreaker and submarine activity.

Explore this previously ‘top-secret’ city. Visit Aloysha, the towering Soviet monument to the Arctic defenders and the Church-of-the-Saviour-on-Waters.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 5
Kola Peninsula

Along the Barents Sea hardy tundra features shrubs, mosses and the last of summer’s wildflowers. Enter the White Sea and explore the area where from the 12th century onwards the Pomor founded settlements. These supreme Arctic sailors relied on boat building and hunting to survive. The tides and weather dictate landings and your experienced Captain and Discovery Team will use their expertise to design your voyage from day to day. This area is strictly controlled and visits aren't confirmed or assured.
Discovery: Pending permission, take Scenic Discovery excursions by Zodiac, kayak and nature walks. Visit isolated Pomor villages to see weathered, wooden houses. Hike across mineral-rich tundra studded with semi-precious stones. Board the Zodiacs to see kittiwake, guillemot and other bird colonies.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7
Kola Peninsula

Day 8
Solovetsky Islands

Hauntingly beautiful, the World Heritage-listed Solovetsky Archipelago stretches across Onega Bay. Rare bird species, including the whooper swan, merlin and marsh harrier, are just some of the 190 migrating summer species. The impressive Solovetsky Monastery and Fortress was founded in 1436. The collection of ancient manuscripts draws pilgrims from around the world, while the remains of Stalin’s infamous camps of this Gulag Archipelago speak of darker times. An uneasy alliance between church and state means visits aren’t confirmed or assured.
Discovery: On your Scenic Discovery excursion, pending permission, land close beneath the monastery’s massive walls and tour the magnificent medieval towers, churches and prehistoric stone labyrinths. Paddle a kayak through the forest-bound lakes via interlinking channels, some dating back centuries, or take a birdwatching and nature walk to spot some of the many migrating species.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 9
Arkhangelsk

The picturesque and isolated city of Arkhangelsk is Russia’s oldest seaport, where timber, skins, furs, hemp and wax were traded for European fabrics and exotic spices in the days of Ivan the Terrible. Once boasting the world’s largest collection of wooden architecture, remnants have survived the ravages of time, to stand proudly on the banks of the Dvina River.

Freechoice

Discover the highlights of this charming port and visit Arkhangelsk’s modern Northern Naval Museum, or walk amongst the beautifully preserved wooden architecture of the open-air Malye Karely Museum.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
