Why North Pole
Imagine reaching this storied spot on the globe aboard the most modern nuclear-powered icebreaker in the
world. What an amazing experience. Go where few have gone aboard the 50 Years of Victory – or just "the Victory”
as it is called by Poseidon Expeditions.

The Russian name of the vessel 50 Let Pobedy means 50 Years of Victory. Powered by two nuclear reactors generating 75,000 horsepower and capable of crushing a clear path through multi-year ice up to three meters thick, she is the largest and most powerful icebreaker ever built.

We carefully navigate the icebreaker to precisely 90 degrees north for our champagne toast of this momentous accomplishment. We ceremoniously drop the anchor on a sturdy stretch of ice and disembark onto the frozen sea. You are now able to stand at the top of the world.
