Cape Dezhnev is a highly symbolic place that forms the easternmost point of Eurasia. It owes its name to the Cossack Semyon Dezhnev, the first Westerner to have rounded the eastern tip of Asia via the Bering Strait, in 1648. If the weather is nice, you may be lucky enough to glimpse the American coastline off in the distance, as Alaska is only 90 kilometres further east. Upon landing here, you will discover the vestiges of a Chukchi village, as well as an old lighthouse that stands as a reminder of Soviet military activity here in the past. Nearby, do not miss the opportunity to visit the small village of Uelen. Its museum will reveal the secrets of local crafts through, in particular, walrus ivory sculptures and engravings.
