Yesterday we celebrated the first ever Polar Explorer Day – a new professional holiday in Russia. Whose day is that? Arthur Chilingarov explains: “Many think that the world’s community of polar explorers is a cozy club. A tiny one, with fancy membership cards. That’s not true. Firstly and most significantly, it is a community of Arctic people permanently living and working in the Far North. They are Arctic’s first and most important explorers – from Greenland to Siberia”.

Two great explorers – one from Greenland and another one from Russia – said that they will unite  Arctic peoples.

Thank you to all those who continue to support my work and occasionally are crazy enough to jump into a frozen river to see if the whole thing is real!
