Cruise to the Very Top of the World – the North Pole
The top of the world. It’s a place very few people can say they’ve visited. With us, you can be one of the rare explorers to venture to the northernmost spot on Earth — the geographic North Pole.
Stories about the “Heroic Era” explorers attempts to reach to the North Pole 120 years ago are fascinating, but the magic is something that truly needs to be personally experienced to be believed. On a small ship cruise to the top of the world, you’ll crush through three-meter-thick ice and a day full of fun and excitement is in store upon arrival:
• On the fast ice surrounding your ship, take photos of family and new-found friends;
• Take a hike of the frozen Arctic Ocean, cluttered with pressure ridges and snow banks;
• Take a Polar Plunge into the icy waters; and enjoy a festive barbecue and circle dance with fellow travelers from all over the world.
• Some expeditions even offer helicopter rides to admire from above the beauty of the frozen expanse and the powerful vessel plowing through the ice. You'll surely take a lot of photos, because a North Pole adventure is an experience that’s difficult to put into words.
The summer months are the only time of year to embark on a North Pole expedition, but this doesn’t mean bathing suit weather. Seasonal temperatures average about 0 degrees Celsius and ice ranges between two and three meters thick. During your expedition you are likely to see High Arctic wildlife such as polar bears, walruses, seals and bowhead whales.
