North Pole Expedition by Airship

The journey as a destination

Airships are durable, can fly autonomously for days, do not require a runway to land and therefore have access to the most unexplored corners of the world. The LTA vehicle can fly low to the ground at low speed so that you can fully enjoy the Arctic fauna from the air.

This voyage offers you the unique opportunity to participate in the first ever expedition to land at the North Pole by hybrid airship. After a flight of fifteen hours of which the route is selected to spot as much migratory game as possible, landing is started. You descend into one of the most inhospitable regions on earth for adventures in the polar habitats of beluga, narwhal, seal, walrus, polar bear, arctic fox, ptarmigan and red-throated diver. Where the world can't find you...
