CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY

Hour 0

The North Pole expedition begins at Longyearbyen in the Norwegian island of Svalbard. Once on board, explore your transport vessel for the  day – the airship. The revolutionary hybrid aircraft, also the world’s largest flying vehicle, is the first of its kind to land on North Pole.


Upon reaching the cruising altitude, enjoy delectable cuisine prepared by your chef onboard whilst members of your trusty expedition team take the opportunity to brief you on key notes for your trip.


As night falls, rest comfortably in your luxurious, private en-suite bedrooms, thanks to the gentle altitude and excellent quality of air.


NOTE:

  • Travelling between June and August will offer a higher possibility of catching  sight of rare Arctic wildlife such as polar bears, whales, etc.

  • Travelling between September and October will offer a higher possibility of catching the Northern Lights

Hour 15

Fuel up with a hearty breakfast as you cruise above otherworldly snowscapes and approach the northernmost point on Earth. Your expedition leader will brief you further on the Arctic environment and the outdoor activities you’ll be partaking in.


Meanwhile, your onboard chef will be cooking up a storm to ensure that your polar lunch in the snow will be an unforgettable highlight.

Hour 21

The airship will provide a helicopter-view from an altitude of 300  metres. At this altitude, you’ll be able to see and observe the  migration of Arctic wildlife with ease. Kick back and enjoy the  horizon-to-horizon views in the non-pressurised cabin!


Your helpful and seasoned Arctic expedition team will also do their best to help you track the Arctic wildlife – including 34 species of marine mammals such as whales, seals, walruses and polar bears.

Hour 25

After a sumptuous dinner, perhaps have a drink as your expedition members round up the evening with tidbits of knowledge on the Arctic environment and its intertwined relationship with the indigenous people and wildlife.

Hour 27

As night falls it is time to spot those dancing ribbons of the  Northern Lights again. Before long, bid adieu to the stunning nature and drift away into the world of dreams.


The rest may be superb but it’s time to stir as the airship arrives back in Longyearbyen. Breakfast will be ready for you, after which, bid farewell to your incredible ride for the past day and hop on a snowmobile back to the city centre.
