The crunch of ice. The whistle of the Arctic wind. The chill bite of frozen noses and fingers. Filmed in Canada’s Northwest Territories, The Arctic takes a look at the remote Tree River. Lying 66 degrees north of the Equator, this is the real north – the hard north. The Tree River is a vast, harsh river tinted with the silty, green tint of glacial melt. It is also home to hordes of Arctic char.
