INTRO TO THE ARCTIC
Like the Antarctic, the Arctic dazzles by its attractive landscapes – with its mountains, glaciers, and drifting icebergs, but also by its vegetation, wildlife, and rich history.
The Arctic is an ocean surrounded by continents. Its history is not only the history of its exploration by foreign nations but also the history of the peoples who inhabited the region for thousands of years. The natives have been forced to adapt themselves to, at times, a hostile environment with some of the harshest conditions on Earth.
During the summer the days are long, offering fantastic photographic opportunities. When the days shorten, it is possible to observe the northern lights (aurora borealis), a natural phenomenon where the sky is covered with hues of green, red, or violet. The landscapes, wildlife, and history make a trip to the Arctic a unique experience not to be missed.
