The Arctic is a region located at the northernmost part of the earth, surrounding the North Pole. It is characterized by its harsh climate, with long, cold winters and short, cool summers. The landscape of the Arctic is diverse, including glaciers, ice caps, tundra, and boreal forests.
Visitors to the Arctic are typically based in small, isolated communities, wilderness lodges or travelling via cruise expeditions, which offer opportunities for dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and other winter sports. There are also opportunities to see wildlife such as polar bears, reindeer, and walruses.
The Arctic is one of the best places to see the Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, which is a natural light display that occurs in the night sky. During the summer months, the Arctic experiences continuous daylight, known as the Midnight Sun. This is a unique phenomenon that can only be seen in the polar regions!
