Explore.org: The Arctic
The snow-streaked mountains and breathtaking glacial vistas of the Arctic are stark in their beauty and stillness, but the life within these icy landscapes is mesmerizing.
As you meditate, listen to the wind whipping through the bare arctic shrubbery and the low rumblings of a polar bear as his giant paws crunch through the packed snow. Dive into the frigid water to watch beluga whales swimming and chattering beneath the surface. Catch a glimpse of the Arctic’s foxes, owls and hares, and watch as polar bears hunt, nurse, spar, and carefully navigate the sea ice. As the sun sets, casting light on the water’s surface, the most magical view is yet to come: the Northern Lights.
