We will use Svalbard as our departure point just as Amundsen, André and Byrd did before us for our attempt to ski to the Geographic North Pole.

Depending on daily ice-drift, we’ll ski and camp for approximately a week on the top of the world.

Cost 34,900 Euros. All prices are per person.
Date Spring 2013
Duration 14 days
Capacity 10
