Adventure Peaks offers an exciting two week alternative: North Pole Last Degree Expedition.
Unlike the journey to South Pole the North Pole Last Degree is across dynamic pack ice that requires you to be flexible to deal with the many obstacles that you will face; open water, huge pressure ridges and extreme weather. The expedition begins in the remote village of Longyearbyen in Norway, well above the Arctic Circle, from where we take a charter flight close to latitude 89 degrees north. From here we set out for the Geographic North Pole an incredibly beautiful and breathtaking journey that will be a tough test of endurance in temperatures as cold as -35°C. In less than two weeks you have arrived at the top of the globe, before a helicopter picks you up for your return journey.
Return flights MUST be alterable, and booked for one week after the date shown to allow for possible delays in flying back from the Arctic. Photo Copyright: Sebastian Merriman

It is vitally important that you have adequate travel insurance for your trip with Adventure Peaks. We recognise the complexity and variety of choice in the insurance market and know that many of you either have your own preferred insurer or have annual multi trip cover in place already. If this is the case, please ensure that your insurer is aware of your Adventure Peaks itinerary and can agree to cover the activities being undertaken.
Adventure Peaks do not provide any advice on travel insurance, although it is a requirement of our booking conditions that you have travel insurance which covers the activities which you are likely to be undertaking on your holiday. Cover must include emergency medical, helicopter evacuation, repatriation and rescue expenses.
It is strongly recommended that suitable cancellation insurance is purchased at the time of booking as all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
