Snapshot Overview – The Arctic vs Antarctica

On a recent webinar with my Virtuoso partners, Arctic Kingdom, they gave a terrific little overview of the major differences between the Arctic and Antarctica (other than being at opposite poles, of course.)

This is kinda a nifty chart to give a quick snapshot.

Indigenous people and culture Virtually uninhabited
Large land mammals + polar bears Large penguin colonies

Let me know if you’d like to visit either the Arctic or Antarctica. I work with my partners Arctic Kingdom to ensure we have the best trip booked for you.
