Are you and partner most likely to survive or die at being lost in a Taiga?

According to the National Geographic Society (2012), a Taiga is considered as a cold forest on the Northern Hemisphere in the Arctic Circle.

This area mostly covers the regions of Alaska, Canada, Siberia, and Scandinavia.

This type of forest stretches for several thousands of kilometers in some areas. Taigas have thick forest filled with coniferous trees and animals such as moose, which have been adapted to the cold climate that Taiga’s hold.

For the adventurous, a Taiga is an amazing place to explore for its extreme yet unique climate. But it would be a misfortune to get lost in this place or worse… Freeze to death since it’s really cold in these places.

If not freezing to death, you can encounter wild animals such as bears and lynxes which If I were you, I’d better watch out. It is truly a pain to survive in this place without the knowledge even for basic camping.

In this quiz, we would explore the possibility of you and your special someone if you can survive the challenges of the Taiga.

This quiz contains 20 questions that will be answered by either YES or NO to determine the possibility of your survival.

The results will mostly depend on your survival skills and knowledge, but since this is also for your partner, let us see how your relationship stability can affect the chances of your survival in this biome surrounded by wild animals that could either run from you or run to you.
