The cold, white world of the Arctic Circle is filled with interesting animals and friendly people. Journey into the Arctic is a fascinating voyage across the snowy landscape where we meet Inuit and Nenets people, polar bears, an arctic fox, musk oxen, arctic tern, and reindeer. Beautiful color photographs bring to life the harsh conditions and the ingenious methods the Arctic people and animals have found to live in the far north.

Journey into the Arctic takes us across an environment which is one of the harshest, yet most beautiful on Earth. Setting off from Greenland, we travel by sled and snowmobile, meeting along the way the peoples and animals of the ice kingdom - seals, polar bears, arctic foxes and musk oxen. We learn how an igloo is constructed, and what life is like in an Inuit village. For the final push to the North Pole, we board a Russian icebreaker, shivering as the seamen take a dip in the icy sea!
