The Arctic and the North Pole itself are one of the most remote and undiscovered regions on earth. It was under enormous stresses and strains that discoverers from all parts of the planet tried to withstand the harsh climate up here and reach the Pole - often with dramatic consequences. It was not only the climatic conditions but also the geographic location, 90 Degrees north, that helped create a myth that challenges explorers until today. Edwin Peary and Matthew Henson were the first to set foot on the world´s most northerly point in April 1909, less than 100 years ago.
We make reaching the pole a whole lot easier for you and invite you to join us for our next Polar Sightseeing Flight, operated by airberlin, Germany´s second largest carrier.
