Visit the place where photographers take their archetypal Arctic photos. Wrangel Island is a protected nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site that can be accessed from multiple capes and bays, including Cape Blossom. This cape is the site of a Russian polar station made famous through the work of Nikita Ovsiannikov, a Russian polar bear scientist. This exposed area on the western shore of Wrangel Island is also known for its walrus congregations. Visitors cruising the bay should keep their eyes open for whales, walrus, polar bears and seabirds.
