""In the Arctic, roads are magical," writes @csmphotos for @nytimestravel. "They appear in the fall and melt in the spring. Others, buckled by permafrost, undulate in the snow." @csmphotos took this picture from the passenger's seat of a truck traveling along the ice road from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk, a remote town on the Arctic Ocean in Canada's Northwest Territories. For generations, the ice road — which is only open 4 months out of the year — has been the winter lifeline for Tuk (population 965). It provides a lifeline for residents to drive to get cheaper gas and cheaper milk. But a new road that's being built could transform their lives. This gravel-topped road will be the only public highway that stretches to the shores of the Arctic Ocean, and upon completion will fulfill a decades-old dream to link all 3 Canadian coasts — the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic.Follow @nytimestravel this #nytweekender to see more photos from a #roadtrip to the end of the world."

It's true. During our arctic cruise we had few days in Greenland. Our travel to the deep of this island was amazing, impressions for the rest of my life. I strongly recommend it for all extreme lovers.
