One-Time-Only Tour: Cruising the Remote Ob River in Siberia

MIR, in conjunction with renowned world traveler and Tour Leader Bill Altaffer, has handcrafted a one-time-only river cruise itinerary that explores some  of these remote Russian locales: Ob River Cruise to the Arctic Circle.

See the Midnight SunOur Ob River Cruise to the Arctic Circle small group tour floats north on the world’s seventh longest river, a major waterway in western Siberia.

At the cruise’s ultimate destination, Salekhard, which sits astride the Arctic Circle, the Ob is iced in from the end of October to the beginning of June. Bill’s group will arrive at the end of June, sometime around the summer solstice, when the Midnight Sun shines all night long.

On your watery journey, observe the flora and fauna of the taiga and tundra on the riverbanks, and meet the hardy people who call this northern region home.

About Your Tour Leader: Bill AltafferLast year he came in 5th. This year he’s 4th. Are we talking the Olympics? Nope. Bill Altaffer is the world’s 4th Most Traveled Person.

The website that tracks such records says, “According to our members, the land area on Earth is made up of 875 parts. To visit all 875 would be to go everywhere…” As of today, Bill’s been to 822 of them. Tomorrow the total may change, because Bill is usually on the road.

He and his company, Expedition Photo Travel, have been partnering with MIR since 2005, putting together custom itineraries that feature oddball destinations you may never have heard of. If you had, though, you’d want to go there.

Bill Altaffer’s tours are certainly not for everyone – just for hardcore travelers who want to go EVERYWHERE on the planet. If you qualify, join him on his quest to be Number 1 in the World Travel Olympics.
