Canada's Arctic region is one of the world's most isolated regions, primarily composed of a large group of islands north of the Arctic Circle. It is an area of unusual landforms such as pingos, cirques and tors as well as an area of beautiful sites such as the aurora borealis. Special adaptations have had to be made by vegetation and wildlife in order for survival in this harsh environment. Despite its isolation, this is a region greatly impacted by climate change.
