From expedition leader, Thomas Lennartz -
    Many people that consider heading to the Arctic believe that the Arctic (and Antarctica) is only accessible via cruise ship or maybe a Tundra bus, but not true! Flying up to an Arctic community, and heading out on the land with AK leaders and Inuit guides is the only way to see the authentic Arctic, how the Inuit live here, and also bring you to the land where the animals such as narwhal and polar bears roam. I promise you, an Arctic Kingdom trip will leave you with lasting memories...and I would like to show you personally what you can expect on one of our adventures and aside from visiting everyone of you in person, the best way to do this is to show you 'virtually' complete with images, sound and where you can ask questions in real time.
