The pinnacle of this three-day expedition is spending one night at 89° north at Barneo Ice Camp. This seasonal, fly-in base camp is truly a unique North Pole experience and ideal for those seeking a short, but adventurous journey to the top of the world. You’ll be one of a limited group to land on a runway made of ice, and take up temporary residence at this unequalled base camp on the frozen Arctic Ocean.
Established each year to be a functioning Russian science and logistics station, the site is operated by the Expeditionary Center for the Russian Geographical Society. Among your fellow guests and base staff, you may meet scientists, pilots, mechanics, engineers, and explorers.
