Russian Far East to Wrangel Island - Heritage Expeditions
We traveled by sea to Provideniya. When we arrived in the morning, the town was covered in fog. It was an ominous start for our trip and an interesting introduction to the former cold war post; a city that has a dwindling population and no access except by air or by sea.
In 2010, we flew to Nome, Alaska and boarded a small charter plane to take our group to Anadyr, Russia. In Anadyr, we boarded the "Spirit of Enderby (Professor Khromov)" on an expedition to Wrangel Island - an island where polar bears breed and that has the highest density of polar bear dens in the world.
