Remote doesn't begin to describe it. A trip on the most full-flowing Siberian river in Russia is so tempting! From snowy Sayan ridges across mountains and plains, forests and steppes, from the southern latitudes to the glacial Arctic Ocean runs Yenisei - the greatest river of Russia. Yenisei runs its waters across the whole Siberia: it seems that it has measured its vast wideness and divided this huge country by its deep bed into two equal parts and has given them to its sisters. Ob gets the Western Siberia and Lena - the Eastern Siberia.
The Commander Islands are the westernmost extension of the Aleutian Islands, most of which form part of the US state of Alaska, though they are separated from the closest US island, Attu Island, and the rest of the chain by a distance of 333 kilometres (207 mi).

We will use a sailing yacht to reach these unique destinations, which are remote, even by Russian standards!
