Très complet !

Guide extrêmement complet et pragmatique. Les destinations arctiques sont moins classiques et il est difficile de se projeter (à la différence d’une destination classique et tempérée). Ce guide de par ses explications détaillées dans tous les domaines (histoire, géologie, climat, équipement… ) pointe du doigt les points de risque et les précautions à prendre.
