In this third talk on the Arctic, we will study the geography, history, nature, and culture of the Arctic regions of four countries – Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the United States. We’ll start with an expedition to Norwegian Svalbard located half way between the northern coast of Europe and the North Pole. We’ll retrace the historic route used to first explore the largest island Spitsbergen. Then we’ll play tourist in the Arctic regions of Sweden and Finland, which despite being above the Arctic Circle, are surprisingly similar to Vermont. We’ll conclude by exploring one of the last true wilderness remaining on earth – the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.
