1 A mythic destination for travelers everywhere, the North Pole is special not only because of the unique geographical point it occupies, but also because it remains a domain that, for most, exists only in the imagination—fewer people have stood at the North Pole than have attempted to climb Mount Everest. Difficult to reach and singular in its impact, the North Pole transforms the perspectives of everyone fortunate enough to reach it. In 2021, we marked 30 years of taking passengers to this northernmost point on the globe, and on this amazing voyage, we enable you to join the privileged few who have set foot on the North Pole. Experience the thrill of the most powerful nuclear icebreaker on the planet, 50 Years of Victory, crushing through thick, multi-year pack ice as it pushes toward 90° north. Enjoy a riveting helicopter tour over the icy Arctic Ocean; discover the remarkable sights of Franz Josef Land; observe the majestic creatures who make their home in this breathtaking yet fragile land; and experience a dreamlike hot air balloon ride over the surreal Arctic landscape, an activity offered by no other polar operator. Join us on this exhilarating journey, venture to a part of the globe few have ever seen, and come to understand why the North Pole has for centuries stirred the minds and hearts of explorers and adventurers alike.
