Discovering Far East
“The Dialogue of Cultures” - Amur river cruise (8 days tour)

This special cruise is dedicated to the upper Amur River with visits the various reserves adjacent to the Amur River, such as the Bolonsky reseves. We will also have a chance to learn more about the various ancient cultures who still live along the river banks, such as Nivkh, Nanai and Ulchi.

Dialogue of Culture is the operator of the Amur River Cruise. Dialogue of Culture is a non-profit organization dedicated to conservation of culture and nature. The organization offers programs which benefit and nurture the traditions of native cultures, such as Nanai and Nivkh which were the first inhabitants of the lands surrounding the Amur River. It also honors a policy of conservation and protection of the pristine territories adjacent to the Amur River. Cruise logistics are supported by Voyage, a registered travel company in Khabarovsk, an experienced operator of cruise and air charter programs.

The Amur River historically provided the main link between the small settlements along the river and the more sophisticated, well-connected city of Khabarovsk. The river, one of the largest in Russia, and frozen almost seven months out of the year, meanders through a continuous changing landscape dotted with small villages where life practically has remained the same for centuries.

This corner of Russia, commonly called the Russian Far East, is endowed with stunning natural beauty and offers a one of a kind opportunity to get acquainted with vibrant native cultures. We will spend some time talking with the elders of these cultures about their way of life and have the possibility to buy hand made souvenirs, such as jewelry, clothing and tools. You will also have the opportunity to visit some of the most important archeological areas in the Khabarovski Krai.

Our on board programs are centered around active exploration of both nature and culture, thereby raising your awareness and satisfying your curiosity about this virtually unknown corner of the world.

Shore excursions will be lead by our lecturers, who will add a special touch to your discovery of these exciting outings. The areas we visit are virtually left alone and therefore offer you an opportunity to get in touch with nature. There will be an evening wrap up which will allow you to ask questions and to offer your comments on the excursion and what you might have observed.

Our vessel, the Amur Star offers you a comfortable way to explore and discover the territories alongside the Amur River. The diversity of nature that you will encounter is a combination of might and beauty that is what the Russian Far East is all about. Hospitable staff and crew await you when you board the vessel and welcome you back after each visit ashore.

All cabins have large picture windows affording you the opportunity to watch the scenery in quiet contemplation.

An open bridge policy while cruising allows you to observe the captain and crew at work. This is the place to be early in the morning to watch the sun come up over the bow and learn more about our ship and its itinerary as we move along.

Experienced chefs prepare all your meals and hospitality staff present you with food that is fresh, wholesome and delicious. One of the best gourmet adventures you can experience on our green stops is the Ukha soup cooked for you especially by the captain. Also tour cruise offers you the famous Neptune celebration, a festivity in which everyone can participate.
