Discover Tours

The Arctic Wolf is a subspecies of the grey wolf, and is found in North America, Greenland, and the Arctic islands. They are well-adapted to living in extreme conditions, thanks to their thick fur coats, sharp teeth, and powerful jaws. The Arctic Wolf's fur is particularly thick and dense, and changes colour seasonally to blend in with its surroundings. In the winter, their coat is white or light grey, while in the summer it turns a darker brown or black.

Arctic Wolves live in close-knit family groups of around 6-8 animals. They are highly social animals, and rely on one another for support and protection. This strong sense of community makes them particularly vulnerable to climate change, as their habitat is shrinking due to global warming.
