NORTH POLE
The ultimate goal for the most ambitious explorer
The Top of The World. For centuries, adventurers and explorers tried to get here by sled, ship, aircraft, dogs and ballons. The harsh realities of the Arctic climate defeated every single one of them until as recently as 1948.
Even today, reading the North Pole is a difficult and challenging journey. Only a select few make it each year. Here is a chance to add your name to the short list of adventurers who have made the ultimate journey to the top of the world. The North Pole is the point from which all the meridians begin. All directions here are southward, and only one coordinate makes sense: latitude 90N, with no (or any!) longitude.

    ICE BREAKER "SO YEARS OF VICTORY"
 

The “50 Years of Victory” is the largest and most modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world. For those with an appreciation of such vessels, the “Victory” is a new generation ship, an upgrade of the Arktika-class, the most powerful icebreakers in the world.


Among its state-of-the-arts features are: 


- a spoon-shaped bow designed for greater icebreaking    ability
- an automated, digitalized control system,
- the most up-to-date nuclear safeguards and    protection systems.


As a working icebreaker, the “Victory” is vastly more suitable to life onboard than was its predecessor the “Yamal”. Though its cabins and suites are as comfortable and spacious as were those on the “Yamal”, the “Victory” offers its passenger much more room for socializing and get-togethers.


NB. The “50 Years of Victory” is the property of the Russian Federation and has received maritime registration under the name “50 LET POBEDY”.
