Photo by @kiliiiyuyan  Dusk envelopes a fishing village in the Norwegian Arctic. This region despite being inside the Arctic Circle is moderated by warm currents that keep the sea mostly ice-free. Fishermen here actually benefit from the slow migration of mackerel from the south as the climate warms but the more important Arctic cod is at risk of a major decline. Follow me @kiliiiyuyan for more from the Arctic and beyond. #norway #arctic #climatechange.

Photo by @jimmychin  Pablo Durana casually carries his 60-lb pack loaded with camera gear a drone set up on crampons skis and axes in the mountains of Greenland&amprsquos western coast. The camera teams and photography directors in the adventure world rarely get the credit they deserve carrying more weight and often negotiating the same terrain as the talent. Pablo is a force of nature and I&amprsquom thankful to have been able to work with him in some of the toughest conditions on projects around the world. For more images of adventures in western Greenland follow @jimmychin..

Photo by @mborowick  Looking up a fog filled canyon in Southern Iceland the feeling of a Jurassic world becomes much more real. At the top of this gorge is the volcano Eyjafjallaj&ampoumlkull that last erupted in 2010 causing mass air traffic across most of Europe. #Eyjafjallaj&ampoumlkull #iceland #volcano #explore #nature.

The park features thousands of hoodoos referred to locally as goblins which are formations of mushroom-shaped rock pinnacles some as tall as several yards. An emblem of the American West the area around the park lies within the San Rafael Desert on the southeastern edge of the San Rafael Swell north of the Henry Mountains.

Photo by @daisygilardini  After three months spent in a small maternity den polar bear cubs really enjoy playing in the open. The cubs don&amprsquot seem to care about the cold even with temperatures dropping as low as -40 &ampdegC. They love chasing each other and play-fighting. Playing is important as it helps develop the various skills and agilities necessary to survive the extreme Arctic environment. This past March I had the privilege of observing this family for after they emerged from their den. From the cubs&amprsquo behaviour we could guess that one was a male and the other a female. The female was much more shy always following and cuddling with mama while the male was always bugging the little sister and biting mama&amprsquos ears. A real trouble-maker! It just fills my heart with hope to see these healthy  newborns play so joyfully! Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and behind-the-scenes stories. #polarbear #wapusknationalpark #conservation.

play_circle_filled Video by @tobyharriman  My buddy Jussi and I decided to trek one of my inflatable paddleBoards and some camera gear 50lbs 3 miles out to find this amazing place. After a 1 mile back track from going the wrong way we finally found a route and set eyes on the most beautiful glacier lake I have ever seen. Paddleboarding here was the definitely one the most surreal moments I have experienced. Music by James Everingham. *Paddling around icebergs or in glacier lakes can and is extremely dangerous as these pools can drain at anytime please use extreme caution and go with an experienced guide or company. #alaska #alaskastories #natgeotravel #sup.

Photo by @babaktafreshi  A spectacular winter night in southeast Iceland with storm-level northern lights dancing in the sky. Gently lit by aurora is a glacier lagoon and an ice-covered volcano in Vatnajokull National Park. The immense wilderness of this park covers 14% of Iceland making it Europe&amprsquos second largest national park.

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta  Petra the &ampldquoRose City&amprdquo is a honeycomb of hand-hewn caves temples and tombs carved from blushing pink sandstone in the high desert of Jordan some 2000 years ago. Hidden by time and shifting sand Petra tells of a lost civilization. Little is known about the Nabateans&ampmdasha nomadic desert people whose kingdom rose up from these cliffs and peaks and whose incredible wealth grew from the lucrative incense trade. Petra was only rediscovered in 1812 and it continues to spill its secrets. Even now archaeologists have explored less than half of the sprawling site and in 2016 with the help of satellite imagery a monumental structure was found still buried in the sand. It&amprsquos no wonder that Petra remains Jordan&amprsquos top tourist attraction and one of the most revered of the World Heritage sites.

Photo by @michaelclarkphoto  Mt. Cook also known as Aoraki seen here from the Hooker Valley is the tallest peak in the southern alps of New Zealand. At 12218 feet and with three separate summits it is a serious challenge for any mountaineer. It is also the peak that Sir Edmund Hillary used to train for his Everest climb. #mtcook #aoraki #newzealand.
