Furthest North - Expedition to the North Pole

Small-Ship Cruise

days from

In our imagination the North Pole is perhaps even more unattainable than the top of Mount Everest. But with this expedition cruise this is no longer the case. Cruise by icebreaker through multi-year ice, take a balloon flight over the Arctic landscape, stand where few people have stood before you and to top it all off, discover the wildlife and scenery of remote Franz Josef Land.
