Take one look at what comes up in a search for photography taken in the Arctic region, and you’re bound to be bewildered by the incredible turqouise colors of icy landscapes and portraits of wildlife in their natural habitat. Occupied by eight countries, there’s so much to see in this sparesly populated area. Of the accessible Arctic locations, Svalbard and Jan Mayen are popular island destinations that offer a glimpse at the roaming polar bears and surrounding icebergs.
