Fascinating Fact About Pingo

If you’re wondering what a pingo is, which our restaurant is named after, we’d love to enlighten you. A pingo is a geographical feature that is found on the tundra formed when the permafrost creates a hill. It is something studied by scientists, and even more specifically, permafrost scientists.

Another name for a pingo is a hydrolaccolith. A pingo is usually a bump shape or cone shape with a core of ice beneath the soil. Pingos apparently even grow taller over time, especially when they are new. The pingos in the Seward Peninsula often exist on or in the middle of an otherwise flat, wide area of the tundra.

A pingo is larger than a hummock or tussock—lumps or bumps in the tundra that you step on or over as you walk. It is also a hill large enough that you could hike to its top and see the surrounding landscape. That is what inspired our owner to muse that even animals might like to climb to the top of a pingo. Of course, only in our imagination would a red king crab— but possibly a fox or bird —do this.
