Arctic Youth is a pro-active expedition program, which creates the opportunity for young talented filmmakers to make their first steps in filming Arctic wildlife & landscape under the guidance and mentorship of highly experienced filmmakers and expedition leaders. Keeping the lowest possible footprint, teaching sustainable practices, admiring and respecting nature and wildlife is part of engaging Youth to become the next generation of nature advocates and polar explorers.

Taking part in expeditions above the Arctic Circle in Iceland, Norway, Greenland, Finland, Spitsbergen, Canada, Alaska, Sweden and Russia, accompanied by a professional crew, award-winning filmmakers and supported by high-profile mentors, young filmmakers are empowered and equipped with skills, courage, knowledge and wisdom that are preparing them to take matters into their own hands; raising public awareness, taking leadership, promoting conservation of biodiversity and building a natural history film network among the Arctic nations.

Arctic Youth was developed by Arctic Yachts.
