Novaya Zemlya (“New Land”, aka Novaja Zemlja, Nova Zembla) is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean north of Russia, with a population of 2,700. It consists of two major islands forming a straight line of 820 km, just 1,500 km south of the North Pole. Geographically the islands are a northern extension of the Ural Mountain range. The northern island is permanently covered by glaciers and ice, and the southern part is low-lying tundra and swamp. In this region you will find foxes, polar bears, wolves, seabirds, whales, walruses and seals.

The islands were of strategic importance during the Cold War and used for nuclear testing. In 1961 the Tsar Bomba (‘King of the Bombs’) was tested, the most powerful H-bomb ever built (50 megatons of TNT, equal to a cube of TNT the size of the Eiffel Tower). Nuclear testing ceased 1990.

The climate is severe. The highest temperature is +7 deg.C. in July/August and the weather is cool and foggy. The opening of this area to tourists, aware of its recent historical background, make it an exceptional site for exploration.
