CAPE FLORENS, WRANGEL ISLAND
Cape Florens is located on the less icy northeast edge of Wrangel Island. This bay offers access to tundra nature walks, where visitors will tread upon permafrost and be able to explore the diverse and beautiful vegetation, including shrubs, sedges, grasses, mosses and lichens. This protected nature area and UNESCO World Heritage Site has a large amount of polar bears, which might be spotted if the timing is right. In addition to the tundra flora visitors coming to the island from this entry point may see two types of lemmings found on Wrangel, starkly white arctic foxes, and beautiful Snowy Owls.
