From your ship’s exterior decks, if you are lucky, you could be greeted by a merry band of orcas, humpback whales, grey whales and fin whales. You will slowly approach Yttygran Island for a highly promising shore visit. Indeed, the north coast of this small island located in the Bering Strait is a real treasure trove for archaeology buffs. Myriad bowhead whale bones, jaws and skulls are arranged on the ground here and their alignment remains unexplained to this day. This unique, emotionally-charged site steeped in mystery was discovered in the 1970s and dubbed “Whale Bone Alley”.
