Meet Glenn Villeneuve: Life Below Zero’s Solitary Star in Alaska’s Arctic Circle

Meet Glenn Villeneuve, star of Life Below Zero on BBC National Geographic. Follow his nomadic and solitary life in the Alaskan wilderness.

Life Below Zero‘s Glenn Villeneuve

Glenn Villeneuve, one of the stars of the BBC National Geographic show Life Below Zero, is living the dream alongside his fellow outdoorsy co-stars, Chip Hailstone and Agnes Hailstone (seriously, those names are epic). The show follows the lives of people who live in the Alaskan region under extreme seasonal conditions. Glenn, originally from Vermont, moved to Chandalar in Alaska in 1999 and has been living alone in the freezing temperatures a couple of miles north of the Arctic Circle ever since.

While Glenn is known for his nomadic and solitary lifestyle, he showed a different side of himself in a series of episodes where he brought his partner and children to his cabin in the Brooks Range. Together with his partner Trisha and their blended family of three children of different ethnicities, Glenn won the hearts of viewers.

Despite the harsh weather conditions, Glenn is a caring and introverted man who has raised and cared for his family in the Alaskan wilderness. The temperature in the Brooks Range drops to 22 degrees below zero for half of the year, but Glenn wouldn’t have it any other way. He loves nature more than any comfort a predictable urban life could offer.

So, if you’re ever feeling down about your mundane city life, just remember that Glenn Villeneuve is out there living his best life in the Alaskan wilderness with his awesome family and making us all jealous.
