August offers visitors a unique opportunity to witness Arctic wildlife, enjoy outdoor activities, experience the culture of the region, and witness the natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights.
August is a relatively milder month, with the temperatures ranging from 0 to 12 degrees Celsius (32 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit). The sea ice coverage typically starts to recede during this month, which enables tourists to navigate the Arctic waters more easily.
August is one of the best months to see a wide variety of Arctic wildlife, including whales, walrus, seals, and numerous bird species. Many animals are still active and can be spotted in their natural habitats. Moreover, it is the perfect time to witness the annual caribou migration in Northern Canada!
With milder temperatures and extended daylight hours, August is a perfect time for outdoor activities such as kayaking, hiking, fishing, and camping.
Many Arctic communities celebrate cultural festivals and events during August, providing visitors with a unique opportunity to experience the traditional Inuit culture, music, and dance.
Although the midnight sun is over by August, the dark nights make it a prime time to witness the spectacular Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) in the Arctic regions, especially Greenland!
