Polar Bears have always fascinated people of all ages Experts believe that they evolved more than five million years ago from brown bears and learned to live in the sea ice. Today, they are found along the arctic region spreading across five nations: United States, Canada, Russia, Greenland and Norway.
The animals feed on seals that live at openings of the sea ice, also known as leads. Males weigh between 750 and 1,200 pounds, while the female polar bears weigh from 300 to 650 pounds. An adventure travel tour to the Arctic region is an exciting voyage to an amazing landscape and an opportunity to see these exotic animals. They do look cute and cuddly but they are predators who live by their wits and hunt for food. Stay with your group to be safe.

Global warming has, however, led to a decrease in the polar bear population. The relatively high temperatures are causing the sea ice platforms to drift away from each other. Dangerous swimming conditions coupled with insufficient food are preventing this animal from thriving. In fact, the U.S. Geological Survey predicts that two-thirds of the polar bear population may disappear by the year 2050. Do not miss an opportunity to see the polar bears before they disappear from the face of the earth. Book a polar bear adventure travel tour today.
