Sharing is caring!
We are so excited to kick off the year’s Book Voyage reading challenge! Of all the regions on our planned armchair travel journey, this is likely the one you’ve read the least about.
Grab a comfy blanket and hot drink, and join us as we read some of the best books set in Antarctica and the Arctic Circle.
If you stumbled on this post just looking for something like an Antarctica book or Arctic fiction, we hope you’ll love the choices. While you’re here, you can read all about our Book Voyage: Read Around the World challenge, download your free printable map book tracker, and find book lists for the other 11 regions here.
For the challenge, you can read any book set in the Arctic or Antarctica, but we’ve compiled a great list of options to get you started. Our curated recommendations strike a good balance between male and female perspectives, and between serious and light-hearted examinations of the coldest places on Earth. From arctic novels and fiction books set in Antarctica to non-fiction accounts and memoirs, these books each paint vivid images of life at extremes.
