Off-deck adventure also awaits you on your way north. Time, weather and/or ice conditions permitting, you will experience breath-taking helicopter rides over the icebreaker as it plows its way through the ice. For those wishing to take some time away from their new-found sea legs, a walk on the ice pack will do the trick.
But this is just the start of your adventure. Disembarking from the ship, you will experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of standing on top of the world. To celebrate this victory, you will join hands with the other passengers while everyone literally walks around the world during a special International Round Dance.
Topping off this day will be a North Pole barbeque and, for the more daring and adventurous, a plunge into the Arctic Ocean.
Given favorable weather and ice conditions, exploration of the Franz Josef Land Archipelago is in the offering. It can be described as consisting of about 190 islands, most of which are more reminiscent of moon craters thus accounting for its more common name the "Moon Archipelago." It is home to polar bears, walruses and many species of arctic birds, and also is the location of Champ Island with its mysterious round boulders found no where else in the earth. Enjoy the unique and possibly never-to-be-had again opportunity to explore this vast landscape and photograph its natural beauty.
After disembarking in Murmansk, you will be returned to Helsinki where you will spend a last evening in the Finnish capital.
