Your Programme

Day 1

Your adventure begins in Helsinki

(1 night stay).

Day 7

The anticipation reaches a climax as you arrive at the North Pole! Take photos, call your family, wave a flag— just be sure you enjoy your moment at the top! Later, everyone will celebrate with a champagne toast and a barbecue on the ice. We’ll also attempt to launch passengers high above the Pole in our hot air balloon (Optional).

Day 11 to 12

Enjoy your time on deck or reminisce with your shipmates and new friends as you cross the Arctic Ocean back to Murmansk. Expedition staff will be on hand to answer any remaining questions and point out wildlife.

Day 2

From Helsinki, you’ll join your fellow passengers on the charter flight to Murmansk, Russia, where you’ll embark on your voyage to the North Pole and get acquainted with 50 Years of Victory, the world’s largest and most powerful icebreaker.

Day 8

On our return voyage you can sit back and relax. As you head farther south you may get lucky and spot polar bears.

Day 13

Returning to Murmansk. Transfer to the airport for your charter flight to Helsinki, Finland to enjoy one final night

Day 3 to 6

Being on board and feeling the icebreaker as it crushes through the arctic pack ice is an experience you’ll never for- get. Just as memorable is boarding the ship’s helicopter for a thrilling aerial view over the ship and the expansive Arctic Ocean. The crossing from Murmansk to the North Pole can take us anywhere from four to six days depending on the ice conditions. Plenty of time to get to know your shipmates and be treated to lectures and discussions by our Expedition Team while looking out for birdlife.

Day 9 to10

Frank Josef Land:

Here, you’ll explore Cape Flora and discover historic remains from three ill-fated arctic expeditions. When conditions permit, we’ll launch the Zodiacs and cruise beneath towering cliffs to explore remote seabird colonies. The 50 Years of Victory heli- copter will provide aerial sightseeing, and our Zodiacs will transfer you to seldom-visited landing sites.

Day 14

After breakfast, your journey comes to an end.
