The flight to the North Pole and the Night on the Top of the World
You not only visit the North Pole, but spend overnight in a unique ice camp Barneo.
The North Pole
What's in store for you
“Have you been to the North Pole?” Most of the people would answer negatively but absolutely not because they didn’t have a dream to go there but because they don’t imagine if it is possible to realize.
Having been operating in the polar regions since 1991 to provide full logistic support to sport and scientific expeditions, film crews and technical projects our company will make your dream come true.
In fact, the Arctic has one of the most severe climate conditions on our planet. The weather there is unpredictable and the ice situation is unstable. Huge distances, low temperatures, poor infrastructure and sometimes the total absence of such – all this contributes to complexity of the adventure and delivers a lovely burst of adrenaline, which we often miss in daily life. However, only professional approach to those factors allow us to ensure safety of such a unique adventure to the maximum extent possible. Safety is the highest priority in all our expeditions.
This adventure does not require any special training nor knowledge – only your desire.
Your adventure starts in Longyear – the capital of Spitzbergen archipelago – the only place in the world where you can find a road sign “Be aware of polar bear!”. Longyear offers every amenity to spend time pleasantly before your flight to the unique Barneo ice base, which has annually been built since 1993 on a drifting ice close to the North Pole.
At the base permanently holding two helicopters Mi-8 you will be provided with the maximum possible at those latitudes comfort – heated tents, full board and our professional polar guides are at your disposal. A helicopter will take you to the North Pole – a top of the world and your adventure, a point where all meridians come together, where time as such does not exist – you are in all time zone simultaneously. Here you can make a round-the-world voyage much faster than Jules Verne’s characters – in a half a minute instead of 80 days…
After that you will come back to Barneo ice base to celebrate the achievement in a warm atmosphere and will be awarded the Memorable Diploma.
This adventure is a unique opportunity to visit one of the most remote and inaccessible places on Planet Earth with maximum comfort.
