On land, you’ll notice that the many species of the Arctic are well-suited to their environment, as you’d expect. With warm coats and light colored fur, the beautiful and striking Arctic reindeer, also known as the Caribou, can be spotted making their way across the icy plains of the Arctic region. Sadly, today the Caribou are decreasing in numbers, due to the effects caused by climate change, but an eagle-eye and some patience could give you a good chance to see this elusive creature in the wild.
The Arctic fox is another land-dwelling species that can be difficult to spot. Naturally camouflaged against the sheer white of its natural habitat, the Arctic fox is a majestic creature native to Iceland. Once spotted, the Arctic fox is a wildlife-lover’s dream, with jet-black eyes, pointed ears and a bushy white tail.
