Expeditions in the Arctic
At the very top of the world, where Asia, Europe and North America converge, the Arctic sits firmly at the pinnacle of many people's travel 'wish lists'. Pristine landscapes, bountiful wildlife, indigenous tribes and natural phenomena give the Arctic a unique appeal to expeditioners. Polar bears, the so-called 'Kings of the Arctic', roam the icy wastes and are the top attraction for many visitors.
Other species to be seen include whales, seals, walruses, Arctic foxes, musk oxen, reindeer and numerous birds. The main season for Arctic expeditions is the northern summer between May and September, when the 'Land of the Midnight Sun' comes into its own with 24-hour daylight ensuring plenty of time to experience these incredible landscapes.
