    Chukchi Autonomous Area (Chukotka)

How to get there and away

The Chukotka autonomous district is notable as being the closest point to North America and the US. In fact on a clear day you can even see the other shore of the Bering Sea which separates Russia and the US.

The Chukotka Peninsular is often visited by scientists, both Russian and foreign, working in different spheres of science. The region is a popular place for research expeditions and conferences devoted to issues of constant and stable development of the territory.

The Chukotka Peninsular is mainly a mountainous area with low and medium mountain relief. So in summer it is good for hitchhiking and bicycle mountaineering. In winter on its bold peak slopes Alpine-skiing and snowboarding tracks can be routed.

There are regular flights from Moscow to the capital Anadyr. There is a Bering Air charter flight from Nome, Alaska. Being this close to the US provides some interesting ways of getting into Chukotka. It's even possible to swim or even walk across (when the water freezes) but doing so will surely get you into trouble with local border guards. The easiest way of getting in legally would be by either boat or plane. Remember that a valid passport and Russian entry visa are required if entering from the U.S.
