In the next 24 hours, we will depart from the financial center of Southern China - Shenzhen, after navigating through various countries - South/North Korea, Japan, and Russia in Northeast Asia, we will cross the Bering Strait under the midnight sun and fly over the spectacular mountain ranges and diverse landscapes of Alaska and Canada, until reaching the foothills of the Front Range, to land in the Mile-high City of Denver, Colorado.
After a brief turnaround, we will be heading northeast, passing over the boundless tundra and frozen waterways and archipelago in the Canadian High Arctic, across the white desert of Greenland, until reaching the fragmented and breathtaking coastline of Scandinavia.
