In the Arctic, you can engage in diverse activities such as observing polar bears, beholding the Northern Lights, partaking in dog sledding or snowmobiling, immersing in indigenous cultures, pursuing photography, kayaking, hiking, embarking on Arctic cruises, touring research stations, engaging in sauna and polar plunges, camping, fishing, partaking in traditional pursuits, scenic flights, and attending enlightening lectures. It's important to bear in mind that the availability of activities hinges on your location and the time of your visit.What can we do when we get there?
Arctic wildlife is surprisingly varied and includes, Arctic foxes, polar bears, caribou, walruses, seals, whales, Arctic hares, lemmings, birds like snowy owls and puffins, Arctic wolves, musk oxen, and more.
These animals have evolved unique adaptations to survive in the cold environment, from polar bears hunting on sea ice to Arctic hares with specialised fur. The delicate balance of this ecosystem relies on the interactions between these species, each playing a vital role in the Arctic food web and contributing to its biodiversity.
Guided tours and cruises allow travellers to experience the unique landscapes, wildlife, and cultures of the Arctic region. These safaris can include activities such as wildlife viewing, cultural interactions with indigenous communities, photography, adventure sports (like kayaking and dog sledding), and experiencing natural phenomena like the Northern Lights. Keep in mind that Arctic tourism is typically seasonal, with the most popular times being summer for milder weather and wildlife sightings, and winter for the Northern Lights and snowy landscapes.
The best time to visit the Arctic depends on your preferences. Summer (June to August) offers milder temperatures, wildlife sightings, and activities like hiking. Winter (September to April) is ideal for experiencing the Northern Lights and snowy landscapes.
