The Arctic archipelago controlled by Norway is the northern most inhabited place in the world. There is virtually no vegetation that can grow on in Island.

We've been sailing to 81° North in search of polar bears, that have dwindled in numbers to less than 25,000. But unfortunately they are just one of several Arctic species believed to be in danger because of rising temperatures.

Chris sets out to Svalbard or Spitsbergen, one of the most remote location in the world. The expedition brought him to 81° North in the ice pack in search of polar bears. Unfortunately rapid sea ice loss is depriving polar bears of their habitat, since they depend on the ice to hunt their prey. This film was shot using the new Sony a7rII and the new DJI X5 for the aerial images.
