On Top of the World Imagine being one of the fortunate few to stand at 90º North, with a complimentary drink in hand—and everywhere you look is south. That is the essence of Quark's 14-day North Pole: The Ultimate Arctic Adventure aboard 50 Years of Victory, one of the most powerful nuclear icebreaker in the world. Explore the Arctic by land and by sea. Crush through multiyear ice on the Arctic Ocean, sightsee by helicopter on the lookout for walruses, seals, whales, and polar bears, or take a tethered hot-air balloon, weather permitting. Experience Zodiac cruises so breathtaking you'll be left speechless. Hiking on Franz Josef Land will have you in awe of the flora and fauna as you visit seabird colonies and retrace the footsteps of early explorers.
