"Tundra," Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. There are three types of tundra: arctic tundra, alpine tundra, and Antarctic tundra. Arctic tundra occurs in the far Northern Hemisphere, north of the taiga belt. The word "tundra" usually refers only to the areas where the subsoil is permafrost, or permanently frozen soil. Permafrost tundra includes vast areas of northern Russia and Canada.
