The North Pole is possibly one of, if not the most beautiful places on Earth. It is an absolute must to go and see. Draped in snow and ice, this ever changing landscape captures true tranquillity and peace. Ranging from the aurora borealis to vast pine forests, the landscape is simply beautiful. Becoming an ever more popular way to view this enigmatic landscape is a North Pole holiday cruise. Here at Arctic-Direct, we offer the perfect cruise for everyone, and can tailor specifically for your interests.
A northern light holiday can be a perfect way to relax, or a perfect way to have an active holiday; it is up to you! The wildlife in this desolate area of the Earth is surprisingly rife. If you enjoy a spot of bird-watching, then this really is an opportunity you cannot miss. Land animals also live here, with sightings of polar bears, seals, and walruses being more than common. These majestic animals are quite a sight, and a symbol of arctic life.
Reaching the North Pole itself is quite an achievement. Although the scenery may seem similar to that surrounding it for miles, there is a special feeling once you reach the most northern part of the Earth. It is very tranquil and quiet, and as every direction you look in is south, it can also be fantastically strange! For those technical minds, explanations and tours of the ships engines and navigation equipment are also available, giving an insight into the way of arctic navigation.
