The Russian Far East is extraordinarily far from Russia's major population centers in [[Europe]] and is usually visited separately, unless by the [[Trans-Siberian Railway]]. The largest city in the region, Vladivostok, is a full seven time zones away from [[Moscow]], with 9,300 km of railroad between them.

Distances between cities and towns in the Russian Far East are ''huge'' and ''infrastructure is lacking''. A combination of using the [[Trans-Siberian Railway]], the [[Baikal-Amur Mainline]], and for destinations off the rail system, domestic flights, will get you around the majority, but not the entirety, of the region. In particular, [[Northeastern Russia]] is almost entirely without interregional transportation infrastructure and is off the Russian rail network—the one exception is the long, lonely, seasonal, and partially maintained country roads connecting [[Yakutsk]] to [[Magadan]]. Heading north from [[Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky]] by road will only take you as far as [[Esso]], road tracks passable by half-track vehicles in March extend as far as [[Palana]]; from Palana onwards, overland travel becomes wilderness adventure.
This lack of roads and rail network makes travel by sea along the coast a much more accessible option, expedition cruising companies
