July 13 – August 17, 2017
Join us for an extraordinary ‘virtual’ adventure beginning July 13th as we embark on an exciting motorcycle tour to the North Pole. Our North Pole Adventure begins in Helsinki, Finland, crosses the Russian border on the way to St. Petersburg, and continues to Murmansk, the launch point for a thrilling 12-day polar cruise. The 50 Years of Victory icebreaker will take us to the North Pole as it crushes through polar ice, and travels through the remote islands of Franz Joseph Land, which we’ll explore by Zodiac and helicopter.
Highlights at the North Pole will include a tethered hot air balloon flight, and a barbeque dinner on the ice! Back on land, we’ll continue by motorcycle and cross the Arctic Circle on our way to the North Cape before heading south through the Norwegian Fjordlands and Lofoten Islands, arguably some of the most beautiful parts of the world for motorcycling. This truly promises to be the “Adventure of a Lifetime!”
