Tundratown glistens with snow and ice all year long and is kept frigid thanks to its climate-controlling wall. Polar bears, wolves, moose, yaks, reindeer and other cold-loving animals make this neighborhood their home, but anyone can visit any time they start yearning to ice skate or throw a snowball.
The Official Zootopia Handbook

Tundratown is a district for polar mammals in the city of Zootopia. It is built on the opposite side of Sahara Square's climate wall.


Tundratwon lake

Tundratown is the icy Easternmost district of Zootopia, characterized by snow, ice and a large number of Arctic mammals living there, such as polar bears and arctic shrews.

Tundratown is notable for its arctic climate, as well as the onion-domed buildings which make up its architecture. There is a special kind of mobile transport for mammals via floating ice caps.

As well as this, skidoos are a popular means of transport, generally, because the lack of traction on the roads becomes a problem for more conventional automobiles, as well as regular taxis.[2]
