The Polar guide

Enjoy your arctic experience

Cold weather can be a dangerous experience, but with the right knowledge and the right equipment, anyone can experience the arctic in an enjoyable and safe way.

The human body functions best in 27°C. One way of defining the word “cold”, then, is any temperature below 27°C. Below this temperature we need to be proactive, whether by adding clothes for protection, going inside or moving around to raise our blood circulation.

From a meteorological perspective, winter is when the average temperature over a 24-hour period is below 0°C. However, winter like conditions can occur at any time during the year, particular at high altitudes.

But winter does not necessarily mean temperatures in the extreme minus; rapidly changing weather often causes problems when temperatures fall and wet conditions freeze.This type of variation can actually be more difficult to handle than persistent, extremely low temperatures.
