Greenland & the Arctic travel guidebook

Greenland & The Arctic - North American Arctic (Chapter)

2nd Edition Jun 2005

This is the Arctic North America Travel Routes chapter from Lonely Planet’s Greenland & The Arctic 2 guidebook.

Big skies, big vistas, big game, big rewards – everything in Arctic North America seems to have succumbed to that supersize effect. In the vast wilderness of the untouched north, wild animals far outnumber people, jagged mountain peaks give way to immense sweeps of desolate tundra, and tiny isolated villages carry on with life through winter’s cruel temperatures and perpetual night. It’s an area of incredible beauty, engulfing silence and constant awe.
