An Unforgettable Expedition to the Top of the World—the North Pole!
Boarding our nuclear-powered icebreaker in Murmansk, Russia, venture northward to the ultimate expedition prize: the North Pole. From the comfort of our uniquely outfitted vessel, we plan a landing at Russia’s Franz Joseph Land, watching for whales, polar bears and other wildlife en route. Ultimately we'll reach our extraordinary destination at 90° north latitude—truly the top of the world! This thrilling North Pole expedition is made possible by our unique ship and a specially designed helicopter that allows us to view the pack ice from a rare and stunning vantage point. "Once-in-a-lifetime" is a travel cliche that's over-used...but in this case, it's absolutely apt!
