The Arctic consists of ocean surrounded by continental land masses and islands. The central Arctic Ocean is ice-covered year-round, and snow and ice are present on land for most of the year.
The southern limit of the arctic region is commonly placed at the Arctic Circle (latitude 66 degrees, 32 minutes North). The Arctic Circle is an imaginary line that marks the latitude above which the sun does not set on the day of the summer solstice (usually 21 June) and does not rise on the the day of the winter solstice (usually 21 December). North of this latitude, periods of continuous daylight or night last up to six months at the North Pole.
Scantours offers tours to the Arctic including Scandinavia, Greenland, Svalbard, Iceland and Finland. This area is equally fascinating in the summer, when the sun can shine 24 hours a day, and the winter with the amazing Northern Lights.
