Fjällräven Polar 2019

E-mail Print
 
The Arctic tundra in northern Sweden is a mostly barren, white landscape, with frigid temperates and winds that sometimes reach 60 to 90 km per hour. Wildlife such as moose, bears, birds, wolverines, the arctic fox, and lynx still inhabit the area, but global warming is advancing faster in the Arctic than anywhere else on Earth. Winters are shorter now, and pine forests creep onto land once considered unfathomable for trees. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Here are some photos of Fjallraven Polar, which from April 8 - 13 involved 26 participants from 18 countries – like China, India, Thailand, Argentina, Chile, Hungary, and others. A challenge that brought people from diverse cultures together in a quest to conquer the cold, connect with nature, and follow the incredibly strong and fit Alaskan Husky dogs over 300 kilometers. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Many thanks to Volkanica and Fjällräven for inviting Patagon Journal to participate in this epic journey!⁣
