“The land of the midnight sun”   The lustrous Arctic is a rare and remarkable area, an ice-covered ocean surrounded by treeless permafrost and its own, unique ecosystem. Most of what you see here is one of a kind. Even the fish which swim these waters, for example, are unique, having evolved a specific blood protein with anti-freezing properties, showing just how far the animal and plant life here have had to adapt accordingly to survive its extreme and irregular climate. The Arctic is thus a peculiar and unparalleled part of the Earth, offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for adventure. Embark on this polar pilgrimage on board one of the Unbound Expeditions vessels to see the home of the polar bear, beluga whale and migrating sea bird; all existing in this frozen and preserved paradise. Only here can you experience the most magnificent light show known to Earth, the natural polar light display, Aurora Borealis, as it illuminates the northern night sky. Don't miss out on this breathtaking opportunity.
