Russia has been active at exploring and settling the Arctic for many decades. This is one of the earliest vehicles to transport people in the area and quite the relic. How fun would it be to zip around the snowfields in this little number? These are not too far off from the original polar bear viewing vehicles from Churchill. The huge propeller fan on the back might be a deterrent for polar bears however!
Some amazing photos from Churchill by Natural Habitat Adventures expedition leader Justin Gibson. The threat of an early freeze – up in the Hudson Bay seems to be gone as the pack ice that had formed last week has blown out in the bay. Looking forward to another week or so of fantastic polar bear viewing and Arctic exploring in the north!
