Looking to vicariously escape the 100+ degree Arizona temperatures? Take a trip through the eyes of a travel writer to four chilly and off-the-beaten path destinations – Greenland, Spitsbergen, Iceland, and Canada’s Yukon Territory. Greenland offers an interesting mix of Inuit and Scandinavian culture. Spitsbergen is about as close to the North Pole as you can get. Iceland is one of the most ruggedly beautiful islands on Earth. And the Yukon is known for gold-mining and spectacular scenery and wildlife.
Presenter Dan Fellner, has written about and photographed all four destinations for the Arizona Republic’s Travel & Explore section.
