Weather and Seasonal Changes

In the Tundra, the weather is usually cold and windy. The rainfall is scant and it is the coldest biome. Most of the year the Tundra is snow-covered but in the summer season, wildflowers burst up and illuminate the Tundra. During the summer season, the top layer of the soil melts which makes insects vulnerable to migrating birds.

Activities to do in the Tundra

If you like crabing, glacier climbing, or whale watching, or you want the chance to see Caribou, then you should go to the Tundra during the summer. If you would llike to see the Aurora Borealis, Ice Fishing, Glaicers, Whale Watching, or snowshoeing, then you should go to the Tundra during the winter.
