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.

To reach the North Pole by ski is a special privilege, which became available to not so many people in human history.

Ice ridges, frozen icebergs and zastrugi are integral attributes of the landscape on the drifting ice at the North Pole. This expedition lets you feel and experience the whole power and beauty of the Arctic, tests your character and durability as reaching the North Pole today is not much easier than a century ago. Leaded by our professional polar guides you can feel like a real pioneer in the safest possible conditions. Safety is our highest priority in all expeditions.

Such adventures sink into the soul and remain a vivid memory for a lifetime.
