Artic as far as I know never worked in desert. It's not fun to freeze no matter what you do. Your equipment brakes because of the cold, the rifle freeze up on you and so on...

I think arctic should be replaced by snowy/icy/frigid which I think without a doubt is the toughest.

Here in Finland when you finish basic training you have a field excercise which usually lasts for a week. It was February back then and it was -35 degrees celsius. That would be around -31 fahrenheit. During that week I got third degree frostbites on my fingers which made me lose all sensitivity in my fingers and it took four months for them to heal.

The stupid thing about it was that after the training finished we had a weekend-leave coming up and I just didn't complain even though my fingers were pretty much useless. Right after the leave was finished the doctor said that I was extremely lucky and I made a mistake not coming to see him right away. The doctor said that for three weeks you can't use your right hand, so I didn't have to salute. :P

I served in Rovaniemi. Our "morttileiri" was at this really nice place called Rovajärvi which must be pretty familiar to every Finnish man.
