Polar bear spotting and flight-seeing by helicopter: Voyage to the North Pole this summer

Go back to the e-newsletter

The North Pole is the world’s northernmost point and a prize still zealously pursued by adventurers and explorers today. This one-of-a-kind adventure with Poseidon Expeditions takes guests across the frozen Arctic Ocean to the North Pole aboard the world’s most powerful icebreaker.

The voyage starts in Murmansk, Russia. There, travellers embark the world’s most powerful icebreaker for a roundtrip voyage to the geographic North Pole. As they crush their way through the polar ice pack, 24-hour daylight provides continuous opportunities for polar bear spotting and flightseeing with an onboard helicopter. Having got to 90 degrees, the ship drops anchor on a sturdy stretch of ice and guests disembark onto the frozen sea to stand at the top of the world. Adventurers will literally circumambulate the globe during the International Round Dance and are then treated to a barbecue meal on the ice. Guests may even have the chance to take a plunge into the icy water.

In addition to the exhilaration of cruising aboard a state-of-the-art icebreaker and the thrill of standing at the top of the world, travellers also have the opportunity to explore the rarely visited Russian Arctic archipelago of Franz Josef Land.

The voyage program is complemented by Special Guest — National Geographic Photographer James
Balog. James Balog is famous for his award-winning film Chasing Ice with the largest calving glacier ever
captured on film.
