In December, photographer and Antarctic explorer Mike Egan set off from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik, to capture the sights of the northernmost island in the world.
Egan’s journey to the Antarctic is a rare glimpse of the frozen north, where temperatures plunge as low as -70C (-117F) and temperatures can dip as low -20C (-10F).
The photo exhibition at the Icelandic Museum of Natural History is part of a three-year-old initiative to create a permanent exhibition of the region’s unique landscape, culture and wildlife.
This is the first time that the island has been exhibited since the opening of the exhibit, and it will be one of a handful of such exhibitions to be displayed in Iceland.
The exhibit will include images of the island’s glaciers and ice caps, as well as other iconic natural features like a huge polar bear.
The island of Svalbard is the third largest archipelago in the northern hemisphere and a popular destination for tourists from all over the world, with about 5,500 visitors a day.
This year’s show will also include images taken from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the largest of the three Antarctic refuge areas. “
I hope it will inspire people to travel further north, and perhaps even explore the whole region.”

The images will be presented in a specially designed museum in the sanctuary, which is a remote and rugged area that is inaccessible to most of the population.
The Polar Bears are considered a endangered species, but the Arctic is an arctic paradise, with temperatures dropping to minus 60C (-140F) at times of the year. Eben Nysmöller, director of the Polar Bears conservation group, said the images will bring the stories of polar bears to the world’s attention.
In 2017, the Icelandic government announced that the country would establish a park in the Arctic, which would be managed by the Icelandic Wildlife Service, the country’s wildlife agency. “
The images also give a good sense of the scale of the polar bear, and also of how fragile their habitat is,” he said.

“Our aim is to create the most sustainable, environmentally friendly, and environmentally friendly environment possible for polar bears and other animals,” Nysmo said.
“This would make a significant difference to the survival of polar bear populations, and will help preserve the biodiversity and biodiversity of the area.”

The exhibition is one of several exhibitions to take place in the park, which will be the first to have a permanent exhibit in Iceland since the 1960s.
The Icelandic government is also looking to open a wildlife park in northern Canada, but this plan has been postponed for now, because of environmental concerns.
Egn Stålinberg, director at the Arctic Conservation Institute in Iceland, said that while polar bears are threatened, the situation is far from hopeless.
“We have to keep working, we have to be optimistic, we don’t know what the future holds, but we know we can still save the animals,” he added.
The first polar bear exhibit in the Icelandic museum is titled The Polar Bear.
