Major Cities

Five of the most major cities in the Subarctic is, first Toronto. The second major city in the Subarctic is Montre'al. Thirdly, is Calgary. Fourth is Ottawa-Gatineau. Lastly, Edmonton..

This is the Subarctic's most major city Toronto.

The history of the Subarctic goes way back to the Native Americans who crossed the land bridge, that went from Asia to Alaska. The Native Americans original residents was what we now call Alaska and Canada.

History of the Subarctic

Some of the land features of the Subarctic is a type of forest called a taiga, or better known as pine forests. These huge masterpeices are one of the biggest of there kind, and in them you can find freezing cold marshes. Boreal forests(taiga) get up to 3,600miles of pure pine trees, spruces and larches. Another land form of the Subarctic is their Tundras, going on for miles. You might wonder how anybody could live in these conditions. Also the Subarctic has the Rocky Mountain range, that travels through this icey land. Many channels and rivers are found across this beautiful area, also bays and lakes of melted snow can be found here in this frozen treasure. Those are the land features of the Subarctic.

Some of the tourist attractions in the Subarctic contain exotic wildlife, or beautiful mountains that surround the pine forests that seem to go on forever. Denali National Park and Reserve is a sight seeing trip and home to the tallest mountain in North America, Mount McKinley. Or you could take a trip to the beautiful Niagra Falls. Also, to swim in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland would be amazing. Don't forget about the Shetland Islands though, there you can visit the Muckle Flugga Lighthouse(and yes that is a real thing). These are a few of the beautiful places you can go across the country to travel and explore the Subarctic. Polar Bears are known to be seen in a few places of the world, mostly in cold places like the Arctic and Subarctic. Churchill Manitoba is a beautiful town filled with Polar Bears and other animals, but tourist mostly go to Churchill for the Nothern Lights that last for 300 days. Also Beluga Whale watching is very popular in Canada and dog sled tours are a once in a lifetime opportunity. These are just some of the tourist attractions in the Subarctic.

Interesting Facts

Some interesting facts about the Subarctic is that first of all they have Polor bears. Also taigas are the largest forest of all, and the Subarctic is the only area that has a taiga in North America. Also not only does the Subarctic wow us with taigas, but they also have Tundras that go on for miles, that's pretty cool. Also I did not know that the Native Americans originated from there. That they came down into the United States migrating and traveling through the harsh winters. These are some interesting facts that I found while learning about the Subarctic.

Economy

The Subarctic is considered a social market, but they are also huge in mining, and their main source of income is by the service industry. Cereals and oil seeds are 34% agricultural income, meat and live cattle is 27%. Domestic market are dairy products is 12%. Fruits and vegetables are 9% and eggs and poultry are 8%. These numbers are why the Subarctic is one of the wealthiest areas, and also how they get their income.

The Climate of the Subarctic

The climate of the Subarctic can also be described as a subpolor or a boreal. These places usually have very cold and long winters with very cool summers. In the very long freezing winters, that average 5 degrees fahrenheit, people who live in the Subarctic have to dress very warmly for everyday life. In the summers the average temperature is 50-70 degrees fahrenheit, enough for a t-shirt. Taigas often have dry summers and bitterly cold winters. Most of this region pretty much averages the same temperature.

The Culture of the Subarctic

The culture of the Subarctic is actually pretty simple, the primary language is English. Although when the Indians were migrating through the land, they had different tribes that spoke different languages. The Algonquian language was spoken most through out the tribes though. There was said to be ceremonys or festivals when the summer and winter solstice was. Some of the dangers in the Subarctic is, the animals such as large bears and other predators that disturb normal day living for Subarctic citizens. Also, because of where it is located the Subarctic is vulnerable to many land disasters such as, earthquakes and tsunamis.

The Animals of the Subarctic

The animals of the Subarctic are creatures you can only find in a few places of the world. Three types of bears live in this frozen home, Grizzly bears, Black bears and Polor bears. All of these animals are dangerous and at the top of the food chain. They hunt down animals like elk, reindeer, moose, caribou, mountain goats, musk oxen, deer and Dall sheep. The Subarctic is actually known for it's mystical wolves, and their name is Subarctic Wolves. They follow herds of caribou, elk and deer. Other predators that prowl this area is red and arctic foxes, wolverines, and lynxes. These predators hunt these small critters, snowshoe hares, river otters and beavers. Some smaller animals are mice, rats, lemmings, voles and squirrels. Those are the animals of the Subarctic.
