Tundra biome for kids. In this video, enjoy pictures and video clips of this cold biome. The tundra can be divided into two types. The arctic tundra and the alpine tundra. The arctic tundra is found in the north near the poles and is very cold and treeless. The alpine tundra is found at the top of mountains and has a similar climate as the arctic tundra.
In North America, you will find the arctic tundra in Alaska and some cities would include Barrow Alaska, Aklavik, Fort McPherson, Inuvik, Iqaluit, Old Crow, Qausuittuq and Tuktoyaktuk. These cities are all on the northernmost frontier, in the Northwest Territories, the Nunavut provinces and the Yukon Territory. Each of these cities has very long winters and short summers.
The alpine tundra can be found in the rocky mountains, Alps, and Pyrenees mountains
