Journey to the North Pole

If you open each shiny new brochure with a tingle of anticipation only to close it with a sigh of disappointment because you have truly been there and done that, then this might just be the adventure for you.

Quark Expeditions offers the most amazing polar journey ever, on a nuclear ice breaker named (somewhat bizarrely) 50 Years of Victory, powering forth from Murmansk in Russia with June and July departures to the North Pole itself.

Few people can say that they have stood at the one earthly spot where every direction is south! Crushing through the ice, admiring soaring seabirds and visiting Franz Josef Land, your voyage will be an extraordinary experience indeed. Add in the excitement of helicopter excursions and an optional hot air balloon ride at the top of the world (weather permitting of course) and you really would be able to boast of a once in a lifetime experience.
