We're pleased to let you know that a select number of berths have become available on this year's 'In the Wake of Bering: In search of the Spoon-billed Sandpiper' expedition in June 2014. A favourite voyage with many of our expeditioners, and run in conjunction with wildlife expedition company Naturetrek, this voyage will take in the best of Kamchatka. Kamchatka remains one of the last few true wildernesses left on Earth. Here a wide range of exciting birds and animals, towering snow-capped volcanoes, virgin forest, pristine tundra and a rich indigenous culture await the wildlife enthusiast, and what better way to explore this land of fire and ice than by spending 12 nights aboard the Spirit of Enderby.

Led by Expedition Leader Rodney Russ, and the Heritage Expeditions expedition team as well as two Naturetrek leaders this 13 day itinerary will weave its way up the Kamchatkan coast from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy to Anadyr in search of a wonderful range of birds and mammals, such as millions of breeding seabirds (including a dozen species of Pacific auks), the mighty Steller's Sea Eagle, Sea Otter, Brown Bear, Walrus, cetaceans such as Orca and Western Pacific Grey Whale and, hopefully, one of the world's most critically endangered waders, the enigmatic Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
