Setting sail from Otaru

The charming port town of Otaru, on Japan's northernmost island of Hokkaido, is a common start and end point for cruises visiting both Japan and the Russian Far East. The town has a notable history, playing an important role in the herring trade during the 19th century, and this is reflected in the stone warehouses alongside the picturesque canal. It's only a small place, so if you run out of things to do then the city of Sapporo is just a half-hour train ride away, or you can explore the wild and beautiful landscapes of rural Hokkaido.

Don't miss

Here’s a weird thing – there is a thriving Venetian glass industry here, dating back to the need for glass fishing floats.

Arriving in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky

Petropavlovsk is the main city on Russia's remote and wild Kamchatka peninsula, a hardy place where bleak Soviet tower blocks stand in the shadow of two giant volcanoes and a ridge of snow-capped mountains. It's a spectacular setting, and the city serves as the main gateway for exploring Kamchatka's otherworldly landscapes and incredible wildlife.

For once-in-a-lifetime tailor-made itineraries, Mundy Adventures specialises in expedition cruises to some of the most wonderful places on earth; places often only accessible by water.
