A paradise for bird watchers and enthusiasts, the Arctic region has large colonies of birds such as the tufted puffin, rhinoceros auklet and guillemot, some numbering in the hundreds of thousands.
The Artic region covers the entire North Pole and includes many countries along its borders, impacting the food chain and weather patterns of our planet. Many marine animals rely on the sea ice to sustain their lifecycle – especially seals which depend on it to nurture their young and polar bears use it to hunt. Krill and cope pods feed on algae that grows beneath the ice sheet and in turn, fish and whales feed on the krill. This delicate ecosystem has been thriving for millions of years and to witness it up close and in comfort, where so few have travelled, is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the immersive traveller.
