The people continue to largely live of, in and with nature – the sea, ice, mountains and animals are vital to most. The icebergs and deep fjords are the setting for spectacular natural wonders that appeal to all – even to those who want to experience the very extraordinary.
Furthest north you’ll find the National Park, which is the world’s largest.
