Yanrakynnot is located on Yttygran Island off the rugged shoreline of Russia’s Chukotka Peninsula. It is situated on the west side of Bering Strait, 21 km over the water from Alaska and 225 km below the Arctic Circle. An archaeological site, Whale Bone Alley with its huge 500-year-old bones of bowhead whales runs along the shore. The location is thought to have been used, around 1300, as a possible ceremonial site for either a men's secret society associated with early whaling activities; or perhaps as a feasting site for the region.

The present 350 Chukchi subsistence inhabitants of Yanrakynnot still practise their traditional lifestyle, including driving sled dogs, and using their umiak kayaks during the summer months when they spend many days at sea hunting and fishing for walrus and bowhead whales.

Yanrakynnot is ideal for hiking to observe both reindeer herding and to appreciate the local flora and fauna. With mountainous terrain only south of the village, the inland tundra gently slopes to the coast. This allows limited reindeer herding, and as a result the village developed when local Chukchi moved here to commence their marine mammal hunting.
