Is it possible to travel from Alaska to Russia?

If so, do you need a visa, passport or only one? Can I fly or take a ferry, and how long for each? What is Russia like? To what extent is for tourism? Would it be safe for a female traveler alone? Any other information that had to be thankful. Cheers, K

If one were to travel west from Alaska a cross the International Date Line and arrive in front the coast of Siberia. The main port of entry to Siberia Vladivostok – which is relatively easy to arrive from Japan. Tourism in Siberia is still in its infancy. I think there are some eco-tour groups that cover different parts of Siberia – volcanoes, Lake Baikal, and fishing. Access is usually through Moscow and then through Novosibirsk and Irkutsk But I also believe that due to a number of oil spills in rivers other than (what happened during the Soviet era), the Russian government refuses to allow a huge number of tourists to witness these environmental disasters. In my opinion, due to the many indigenous peoples of Siberia, tourism may never develop to any great extent. Tourism would be to destroy the cultures and the environment. I hope that these links are useful
