The countries that make up the Arctic each offer their own unique opportunities for travellers. Approximately 4 million people call this region home, despite having to live in freezing cold temperatures all year long. It truly is one of the world’s most unique ecosystems and witnessing how the local indigenous people have adapted to deal with the conditions is truly remarkable.
Don’t let the cold weather turn you away – or you’ll miss out on the opportunity of witnessing some pretty incredible wildlife, local communities and learning about a unique culture. Polar bears, Arctic foxes, walruses, narwhal, seals, reindeer and whales are just some of the fascinating species who call the Arctic home.
Mountain peaks, stunning glaciers and divine blue oceans make up the landscape of the Arctic, it is a photographer’s dream. Include the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights into the regions list of things to see and you have what could possibly be the world’s most beautiful destination.
