Experience a real adventure, voyage to the North Pole aboard the most powerful icebreaker ever built by man. This cruise is a not-to-be-missed chance to experience first-hand splendor, beauty and raw savagery of one of the last few remaining frontiers on earth.

Start your tour in Helsinki, Finland with a flight to Murmansk, Russia. Travel through Barents Sea via nuclear powered icebreaker “50 Years of Victory” and fly to the Pole by a helicopter right from the ship. Stop at the islands and archipelagos of Franz Josef Land and Spitsbergen. Return to Murmansk and fly back to Helsinki.
