Far Eastern District

In the easternmost part of Russia lies the massive Far Eastern District, covering the entire northeast coast of Asia, the Russian Arctic, Pacific Ocean islands, and a wide strip of eastern Siberia. The country's "final frontier" is commonly mistaken for a part of Siberia, but in fact it is even larger, colder, and more isolated than popular notions of Russia. Forest taiga in the central parts replaces the Arctic tundra of the north and blends with the fertile river valleys in the south. The national parks of Kamchatka, full of geysers, volcanoes, and acid lakes provide some of the most dazzling landscape views in the world. The major attractions of this massive region include former Cossack fortified towns, the terrifying Soviet Gulag camps, and the coldest place on earth outside Antarctica. The district also boasts two World Heritage Sites: one famous for being home to the legendary Amur Tiger as well as the crash site of a huge meteorite, and the other located "at the end of the earth," with the highest density of polar bears in the world. Far Eastern District is in Russia. With our custom trip planner, Russia vacations can be built around trips to Far Eastern District and other destinations in Russia.
