ICELAND

Land of Fire and Ice

Female hiker looking across the Iceberg Lagoon, Jokulsarlon, Iceland filled with glacial Icebergs with the Vatnajokull Glacier in the background, Europe's biggest glacier. The focus is on the Icebergs. Shot in summer 2009 when the lagoon had the greatest number of icebergs for decades.

In far-flung Iceland where sparkling white and blue glaciers hang side by side with sudden bursts of crimson volcanic lava, nature indeed reigns supreme. This is a land where seemingly normal activities are transformed into extraordinary experiences – taking a stroll and ending up hiking across majestic mountains, dipping into the pool means soaking away the blues in a geothermal hot spring, and a picnic may just get you front row tickets to the northern lights and the midnight sun, whichever is your pick.

The World’s Largest Island

Giant Icebergs of Disko Bay near Illulisat, Greenland, a popular cruise destination

With 80 percent of its land mass covered in ice and its whole perimeter surrounded by vast ranges of unfenced wilderness, Greenland is the perfect utopia for adventurers to wander at will, conquer mountains and glaciers, sail through some of the planet’s most spectacular fjords, and gaze and daze over the magical light shows of the Aurora Borealis and Midnight Sun all in one setting. Alongside nature’s best, the world’s largest island also offers a chance to interact with the native Inuit and learn about their unique way of life free from the sometimes dreary trappings of urban societies.

Greenlanders are warm and friendly and their national character is rooted in a history of living in extreme conditions. A vibrant and dynamic culture is developing in line with and with respect for traditions and beliefs, leaving clear traces in the culture of today in all areas

NORWAY

The Most Northerly Extreme

Polar Bear (Ursus maritimus) adult, walkin on melting icefloe, floe edge, Baffin Bay, Nunavut, Canada.

To this day, the Arctic remains one of the world’s most uncharted regions and that is its exact charm. Svalbard, the closest region to the North Pole as most of us can hope to get to, puts on a shapeshifting display all year round as the Midnight Sun, Polar Night and Northern Lights rotate to take centre stage. Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town, provides the perfect base for adventurous punters to explore the archipelago, and who will say no to scooting across the icy white terrain on a snow scooter, and meeting the king of the Arctic, the majestic polar bears.
