If you are a true explorer, this is a place you want to go before you die. Make sure to visit this site between the end of July and the beginning of August, because that’s the best time to watch the natural wilderness without facing the snow blanket in the island or the winds and fogs that prevent tourists from sightseeing.

Since this is a protected area, you may find difficulties in visiting this place. First of all, you will require obtaining special permits to visit. The permit to visit the Chukotka region alone takes a very long time to process. Then, Wrangel and Heralds are two islands located in Arctic Ocean, so you need helicopter transportation to get there, and that’s quite expensive. If you are interested to go to this site, there are a lot of travel agents that offer you wildlife tours in various packages.
