From Murmansk to the Port of Varandei; across the Barents Sea, through the Kara Strait and Kara Sea; past the east coast of Novaya Zemlya, western Yamal, Bely and Gavrilova islands to the Shokalsky Strait. Then south, along the west coast of the Taimyr Peninsula, to the Port of Tiksi. This was the route the ice-breaker Yamal followed during an Arctic expedition that ended yesterday.
