A voyage where the journey is as important as the destination, a North Pole expedition cruise is a bucket-list achievement for any traveler. In addition to the thrill of standing at the top of the world, travel in comfort aboard “50 Years of Victory”– the most powerful icebreaker ever built. Your journey to the North Pole takes you through Franz Josef Land, a rugged archipelago with scenic grandeur. This High Arctic wilderness contains endless opportunities to observe the pristine nature and vivid wildlife, to witness the history of early polar explorations. At the North Pole, at precisely 90 degrees North, where Earth’s axis meets the surface, all longitudes and time zones converge. Everywhere you look is South. You are literally standing on “Top of the World”.
