The delicate, desolate terrain of the Far North

The Arctic is not a place for the faint of heart. Its harsh climate has discouraged many an otherwise adventurous traveller. But for those who can look beyond the aggressive winds and extreme temperatures, the Arctic will unveil its remarkable natural splendors.

The barren landscapes can seem lonely to the untrained eye. Tundra’s most recognizable feature is the permafrost, or frozen soil, which prevents the growth of most vegetation. However, visitors learn to embrace the stark lands as a much-needed respite from their urban lives.
