There are many reasons why you should visit the Arctic. Earth’s northernmost region is characterised by polar conditions, unusual flora and fauna, blue ice, magnificent fjords and other bleak but breathtaking landscapes. Centred on the North Pole, the Arctic Circle encompasses eight nations, including Canada (Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut), Denmark (Greenland + the Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the USA (Alaska).
Exploring the Arctic is one of the most memorable travel experiences you can have. My fellow Destination Expert, Arturo, and I both consider our adventures here to have been defining moments in our lives. As busy London residents, the chance to drink in the pure air, tranquillity, emptiness and majesty of such an otherworldly place returns you home feeling refreshed, motivated and privileged.
