Canada? Alaska? Greenland? Spitsbergen? Russia?
Yes, if you head far enough North in any of these countries you’ll find magnificent polar bears roaming free across vast tundra landscapes and dramatically desolate sea-ice.
There are 19 distinct populations of polar bears recognised by scientists across Arctic regions, and each population has its own unique selection of adaptations and behaviours. Many of the planet’s 25,000 (approx.) polar bears live in areas that can only be reached by super-human effort, or with the aid of a helicopter.
BUT there are life-changing opportunities available for normal people to explore into the regions where polar bear habitat and human habitation overlap.
