Here is your chance to add your name to the short list of adventurers who have journeyed to the top of the world! The Arctic’s harsh climate defeated many explorers in the past, but you’ll conquer the region’s dense pack ice aboard the Yamal, one of the world’s most powerful icebreakers. You’ll sail north from Murmansk across the Barents sea to reach the Geographic North Pole, then proceed south to the towering volcanic mountains, icebergs, and glaciers of Franz Josef Land. Your voyage will take you through an ever-changing panorama of wind-polished ice up to five meters thick, narrow channels of dark green water, and aquamarine pools scattered across the frozen sea. You will enjoy the immense polar landscapes both from the ship and from an expertly-piloted helicopter, and along the way you can expect to encounter a variety of Arctic wildlife such as polar bears, walruses, and ivory gulls. By the time you complete your trip and return to Murmansk you’ll have unforgettable memories of a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
