It’s inhabited by polar bears, muskoxen, arctic foxes, beluga whales, reindeer, seals, walruses, and migratory birds, among other wildlife species.

The Arctic encompasses several countries and cultures. You can learn about Inuit customs in Nunavut, Canada’s newest territory, or also explore the Indigenous cultures of Greenland. Then there’s the outpost of Longyearbyen in Spitsbergen, the capital of the Svalbard archipelago. Such diversity is part of the appeal of an Arctic expedition.
