When it comes to whale watching destinations, the Arctic isn’t always the first to come to mind....
Over the years we have explored many fascinating subjects as we look at the wonderful places and incredible animals of the Arctic. We have had the chance to find out how polar bears have evolved to camouflage in the Arctic and why narwhals have tusks. We have discussed how glaciers are formed and how these enormous masses of ice can shape a landscape.
These deep dives can explain a lot but sometimes you just need the facts quickly.
That is why we make our fast facts series so that you can get the important details and fun quirks right away.
