reubenhernandez We had a very rare sighting of polar bears mating at 80° 10'3 N, close to the North Pole. Only one of our naturalists (Tom, pictured in one of my previous photos) has ever seen this in the wild #thisarcticlife #polarbears #mating #wildlife 5d

reubenhernandez "The secret to success is to do what you love." - Dr. Tom Smith, rifle master and naturalist. Tom is one of the most fascinating guys I have ever met and has some incredible stories that include traveling solo through the Arctic for 2 years on a single journey, living and hunting with the Inuit community, and punching a polar bear in the face. I'm lucky to be part of this team #thisarcticlife #makeportraits 5d

reubenhernandez I will never forget my first polar bear sighting in Hornsund. It was really special and we had the chance to observe this mother and cub for over an hour. Polar bears are only found in the Arctic and can weigh up to 1,700 pounds. The larger bear pictured here was estimated to weigh about 600 pounds. Whenever we land or go out on Zodiacs we must carry firearms for self defense #thisarcticlife #polarbears 5d

reubenhernandez The sun doesn't set in the Arctic during the summer. This photo was taken at 12:35 am and this ship will be my home base for the next 4 weeks. She's a beauty #svalbard #arctic #arcticcircle #vscocam #vsco #thisarcticlife 2w

reubenhernandez Flying into Longyearbyen, Svalbard, Norway, the northernmost town in the world. Longyearbyen is located in the Arctic Circle, 819 miles from the North Pole. I'm very excited to be here; a new adventure begins starting now! #longyearbyen #svalbard #norway #arcticcircle #arctic #thisarcticlife 2w

reubenhernandez The airplane views in Norway are mesmerizing and I literally couldn't stop staring out the window. I'm back in Oslo for a day and then I'm off to the Arctic Circle tomorrow to kick off my photo residency! #airfjorden #airfjord #fjord #fjordwhat #norway #thisarcticlife 2w

reubenhernandez Happy Monday from the top of Preikestolen cliff, overlooking Lysefjorden. BASE jumpers are legally allowed to jump here, but I didn't give it a try. Also, congrats to @victored for winning our Lowepro giveaway! Arctic bound in 2 days #preikestolen #norway #thisarcticlife 3w

reubenhernandez Monday in Norway - I made it to the top of Preikestolen! Preikestolen is a steep and massive cliff 604 meters above Lysefjorden. The top of the cliff is flat (25 by 25 meters) and formed about 10,000 years ago during the ice age.
Norway is one of the most beautiful, picturesque countries I have ever visited, and Preikestolen is by far one of my all time favorite travel experiences. Enjoying the breathtaking view of Lysefjorden with my feet dangling off the edge of that cliff was transcendent. #preikestolen #norway #thisarcticlife

reubenhernandez Norwegians are some of the kindest people I have ever encountered. Norway has a high quality of life and it really shows by how much they enjoy life and take care of other human beings and look out for each other. My host, Daniel, prepared this beautiful meal tonight: tusk wrapped in prosciutto di parma, homemade pesto and tomato sauce, spinach and arugula purée, boiled asparagus, and muscadet. Norway has truly won me over #onthetable #ilovefood #bergen #norway #thisarcticlife 3w
