Silversea Expedition Cruises A Ushakova Cape, Wrangel Island

Ushakova Cape, Wrangel Island

Located in the Arctic Ocean between the Chukchi Sea and East Siberian Sea, Wrangel Island is worth a longer visit to experience the Arctic wildlife that resides here. This protected nature area and UNESCO World Heritage Site has the largest amount of polar bears and apparently was the last place where woolly mammoth roamed. View more

The name of the island goes back to the search for land north of the Chukchi Peninsula by Ferdinand von Wrangel, who went in search of the island with coordinates but did not find it on his first expedition. The waters surrounding the island are fertile ground for possible whale sightings, including gray whales, bowhead whales and beluga whales. The island is an important breeding ground for polar bears and walrus. Also roaming the tundra are reindeer, musk oxen and lemmings. Wrangel Island is accessed via Cape Ushakova, named after a famous Russian Arctic researcher.
