Beginning our voyage in historic St. Petersburg,eginning our voyage in historic St. Petersburg,
we fly to the Siberian village "Norilsk" for our first preparations, before we continue on to Servanaya Zemlia. As we proceed North out over the immense Arctic Ocean we keep watch for Polar Bears and Walruses. You will realize the vast greatness of these icy realms even before you set your foot on the ice-shelf itself at our "Ice Camp" situated at approximately 89 degrees North -- 1 degree or 60 miles from the North Pole.

On skis and pulling our load, we head North through dense, multi-year pack ice to the North Pole, a worthy goal as our team is pushing through pressure ridges, crossing leads as explorers before us. Early spring the weather will be at it’s best with temperatures ranging from -10 F and above. Navigating the polar pack under the midnight sun, we are enthralled by an ever-changing panorama of wind-polished ice, narrow channels of dark green water and aquamarine pools.

Once at the Pole, achieving our goal, we celebrate the victory with Russian Caviar and Champagne as we contemplate the heroic struggles of early explorers who succeeded or failed to reach this spot -- the place on earth where all meridians unite. From the Pole a helicopter and plane will bring us back to the civilized world. This is truly an expedition of a lifetime.
