The Shantar islands: lost in the Sea of Okhotsk

Travel to the sea of Okhotsk to visit the Shantar Archipelago (not far from Khabarovsk) where a human population of just seven live cheek by jowl with 200 bears. Meet the killer whales and brave a climate so severe that icebergs linger through the summer and September sees the first snows.
