Yttygran Island is located in the Bering Sea, less than two kilometres from the Asian mainland’s autonomous district of Chukotka of the Russian Federation. On the island’s northern shore is “whalebone alley”, which consists of 50 to 60 carefully arranged whale skulls, 30 jaws, whale bones and stones, along with a considerable number of meat storage pits. The arrangement is thought to be 600 years old, and its purpose is unsure. The local Yupik (Eskimos) explain that this part of the island was a collective centre for the flensing, butchery and storage of whale meat. The site extends over 550m. along the shore.

Yttygran Island is a tourist magnet, described as an “eerie graveyard of the damned” and “as mystic as Stonehenge”. Interestingly, it is situated in the only part of the Russian Federation that lies in the Western Hemisphere. The island’s last inhabitants departed in the early 1940s.Today Yttygran Island is popular with eco-tourists. Apart from Whalebone Alley, tourists will observe Beluga whales which are common in the waters around Yttygran, a major whale migration path. On shore one sees a great number of plants and flowers, Arctic ground squirrel and Northern pika (small mammals). There are also in the region impressive bird cliffs where thousands of kittiwakes and guillemots breed.

In winter the Bering Sea ice cover has been retreating in recent years, restricting hunting and fishing, but allowing greater access to explorer ships. Air and sea temperatures have been rising, resulting in unusual weather patterns including storms.
