Where every direction is South
Achieve the mythical 90° North was the obsession of great explorers and nations for centuries. Now is our chance to step on one of the most inaccessible and elusive corners on the Earth: the Geographic North Pole.
Our journey aboard an magnificent icebreaker ship will take us through the shifting ice sea of the Arctic Ocean, the northermost land of the Eurasian continent and the frigid Barents Sea to reach the place where all Earth meridians converge.

Not only from the sea level we are going to admire the endless landscape, we can also fly in a helicopter which is on board the icebreaker. From the heights, we will see the ice floes floating adrift, the huge pressure ridges and how is progressing our boat through a world of ice. We will land also in Franz Josef Land, an archipelago with large colonies of seabirds and which is the northernmost land of the Eurasian continent.
