North Pole

Challenging the sea ice to reach the top of the world at 90° North

Expedition Cruise to the North Pole

The Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole, is defined as the point in the Northern Hemisphere where the Earth’s axis of rotation meets its surface. Adventurers and explorers tried to reach the top of the world for centuries using sleds, ships and even aircrafts. The harsh realities of the Arctic climate defeated every single one of them until 1926. Even today, reaching the North Pole is a difficult and challenging journey. Only a select few make it each year.

The North Pole is the northernmost point on the Earth, lying diametrically opposite the South Pole. And while the South Pole lies on a continental land mass, the North Pole is located in the middle of the Arctic Ocean amid waters that are almost permanently covered with constantly shifting sea ice. The only option to reach the northernmost point of our planet is on board an icebreaker strong enough to push through the thick layer of sea ice.
