WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS

Camargue Wild White Horses

Southern France’s Camargue Natural Park is home to herds of white horses known as the Camargue horse.

These horses are not only admired for their beauty but also revered for their strength, agility, and resilience. They have roamed the marshes, wetlands, and salt flats of the Rhône River delta for centuries.

From the herd galloping through shallow salt marshes to stallions commanding the waves of the Mediterranean, Camargue horses offer endless photo ops for wildlife photographers and nature lovers alike.

REMOTE PLACES

Bylot Island

Off the northern end of Baffin Island, you’ll find Bylot Island in Nunavut Territory, Canada. It’s a place that beckons adventurers with its rugged beauty and untouched wilderness.

Bylot Island is part of Sirmilik National Park, the fourth largest in Canada but one of the least visited. Much of the island has never been explored and there are no permanent settlements on this arctic island although Inuit regularly travel here to hunt.

Some of the best hiking in the Arctic can be found here. Ice-capped towering mountains, lush tundra valleys, glaciers, and peculiar formations of eroded rock known as "hoodoos" provide a tapestry of terrain waiting to be explored.

Another great adventure opportunity Bylot Island offers is journeying to the floe edge by snowmobile to observe wildlife such as narwhals, polar bears, and seals.

NATURAL WONDERS

Cono de Arita

In the vast expanse of Argentina’s Puna Desert rises a geological marvel that defies both time and imagination – the Cono de Arita.

Set on the edge of the Salar de Arizaro, on a high plateau, surrounded by salt, the dark mass makes a striking image.

At first glance, it looks like a man-made pyramid, but geologists have confirmed that this formation is a volcano that was not strong enough to explode.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“In order to change skins, evolve into new cycles, I feel one has to learn to discard. If one changes internally, one should not continue to live with the same objects. They reflect one’s mind and psyche of yesterday. I throw away what has no dynamic, living use.”

Anaïs Nin
