Arrival to Svalbard


The expedition starts in Longyearbyen, the northernmost city on the planet, on the arctic island of Svalbard, with an estimated population of 1.000 permanent residents. Our expedition team will be there to welcome you and introduce you to the other guests. There are 8 cabins only onboard, allowing us to create an intimate and personalized experience for everybody. The pilots will be briefing you on the flight plan and the selected route to reach the North Pole that will take two nights and approximately an exciting 38 hours to remember


Departing to the North Pole


At 18:00hrs, after an exciting take off, we'll fly north and searching for wildlife spotting opportunities such as polar bears and whales in a unique route. Our ability to fly low and slow together with big panoramic windows will create a flying experience like no other. At 20:00hrs, a cocktail will be served.
Sit back and enjoy our award-winning chef’s fine dining onboard while flying over icebergs towards one of the most remote places on the planet. Spend the night aboard in a comfortable and spacious cabin to wake up to a historical landing on the North Pole.



A landing to remember


At 09:00am, picture yourself taking your first step off the airship onto the North Pole surrounded by simply nothing other than an endless white ice desert. Our expedition leader will brief us on the morning activities. Lunch will be served on the snow before starting our return on a panoramic flight over the arctic landscape. Celebrate the landing with the crew and your expedition companions over dinner aboard while setting course back to Svalbard. The night will be spent on board before landing at 06:00am


Animal Spotting & Weather phenomena

Svalbard is a group of islands located between mainland Norway and the North Pole. It’s the world’s northernmost inhabited area and is known for its arctic landscape and fauna. Its glaciers and frozen tundra host an abundance of polar bears, reindeer, arctic foxes, and large walrus colonies. The Northern Lights are visible during winter, and summer brings the “midnight sun”.


Svalbard offers the opportunity to explore a remote arctic region with limited but solid infrastructure. Both from sea and land, discover the immensity of the arctic regions through an adventurous array of options.


The Journey




Polar bears, whales, arctic foxes, seals. Spot the iconic fauna in a quiet visit with humble respect for the sensitive nature and wildlife of the North Pole.


Arctic Phenomena

The Nordic offers mysterious atmospherical phenomena that only occur above certain latitudes. The tilt of the earth’s axis and the magnetic field going through the core of our planet, are the root causes of these beautiful and spectacular displays of nature.

Enviroment Care

Flying with the wind

Winds turn clockwise when ascending on the northern hemisphere. By shifting altitude we are able to fly in more favorable wind conditions and directions. Balloons use this feature to steer. We use it to increase efficiency and speed.
Choosing a different route can be used to find better wind directions, further minimizing fuel consumption, therefore CO2 emissions.


The North Pole Expedition operates only for one season (26 flights) with weekly departures from Svalbard from May through October. Estimated departure year is 2024 or 2025.
It will be the first time in history that an airship lands on the North Pole.
Your participation will contribute to creating a new era in sustainable aviation.
