When Torarin and his sister, Svalin, asked their parents for a horse to ride, their dad had something else in mind… camels. After shipping two Bactrian camels to their home in Akkarfjord, Norway, Torarin’s family embarks on an unforgettable journey in an effort to train the camels for riding. Bor and Bestla, the only camels north of the Arctic Circle, love their new family and make themselves at home in Akkarfjord. But when training Bor and Bestla becomes harder than they thought, Torarin and his family set off to Mongolia to work with a renowned camel trainer. Although the Mongolian training methods originally clash with the gentle way Torarin wants his camels to be treated, the trainers and the family are able to find a method that works for everyone. While the process is not always easy, it’s an incredible learning experience for everyone involved, including the viewers. Quirky and captivating, THE ARCTIC CAMELS is a unique documentary adventure the whole family can enjoy. (In Norwegian with subtitles) — G.S.
