North Pole expedition travel is for the traveler who is looking for an adventure and a challenge.  We offer several programs that will fit almost anyone with an adventurous spirit.  All expeditions are scheduled for late March through mid-April, when the polar climate is at its best, with 24 hours of daylight and temperatures ranging from 38 C to 20 C. Expeditions begin with a flight from Spitsbergen, Norway to the Barneo Ice Camp situated on the polar ice cap, approximately 89 degrees latitude. Some chose a one to three day experience that includes time at the base camp and a helicopter flight to the geographic North Pole. While at Barneo, visitors will have the opportunity to witness the rich activity of the camp, often meeting skydivers, scuba divers or Arctic explorers from around the world. Well-trained skiers who are up to the challenge of the polar wilderness, may choose a skiing expedition to the geographical North Pole that involves pulling a pulk with all provisions, pushing through pressure ridges, crossing frozen leads and camping in tents. Starting points vary with the length of the ski program, weather and ice conditions. For skiers who prefer a less rigorous experience, we have programs that are near base camp during the day, with accommodations at night in heated tents. For all who reach the Pole, there is a celebration and an opportunity to contemplate the exploits of those who succeeded or failed in the past and present to reach the place on Earth where all meridians unite.
