Drop Pin To A New Yachting Destination

14 September 2021

An untouched archipelago, mainly accessible only from the sea.

The Kuril Islands lay on the northeast side of Hokkaido, Japan, and stretch to the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula; their volcanic nature and lush tundra landscapes make them one of the most exclusive and unique itineraries on the market.

Opposite to the more popular tropical charter destinations, the Kuril Islands encompass a variety of habitats including many kinds of beach and rocky shores, cliffs, wide rivers and fast gravelly streams, forests, grasslands, alpine tundra, crater lakes and peat bogs.

The northernmost, Atlasov Island (Oyakoba in Japanese), is an almost-perfect volcanic cone rising sheer out of the sea; it has been praised by the Japanese in haiku, wood-block prints, and other forms, in much the same way as the better-known Mount Fuji. Its summit is the highest point in Sakhalin Oblast.

Marine life is abundant in these waters, counted as among the most productive in the North Pacific. Sea otters, sea lions and seals can be encountered during your trip to this magnificent land.

Only a few superyachts currently cruise this area, which makes this trip even more intriguing.

LA DATCHA offers an itinerary in the Kuril Islands; her ice-classed steel hull and her IMO Polar Certification allow her to cruise with her guests even in extreme conditions.
