Complete silence, white clean and pure nature, thousand-year old ice, a 24 hour daylight with a beautiful crystal sun, an absolutely great feeling, alone - on the real top of the world, similar as a fantastic dream- seems you are on a white moon, representing your country and your sponsor - like an astronaut!

This is the still unknown and untouched Arctic, this is the magnificent and greatest North Pole balloon adventure. To reach this region- at the last end of the world - is more difficult as to climb on Mt. Everest. But it´s possible - with the outstanding help of the experienced Russian Polar Airforces. Until now, only few people have had the opportunity to witness the „Real Top of the World“. Also till now, only 9 balloons from all over the world ( no more than the fingers of our hands !) have had the pleasure and chance to fly successfully over the North Pole and receive the title Polar Balloon Explorer“!

The logistics for such a balloon expedition to the North Pole are enormous and the really low price for this difficult expedition (even the much higher fuel costs we succeeded to arrange the same price like 1997) is only possible with the friendly goodwill from a multitude of sporting assistants, volunteers and from the spirited support of the polar airforce (a Himalaya expedition is much more expensive).

For this reason: TAKE THIS CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS UNIQUE EXPEDITION (it will be the last one with this cheap price ) ! This expedition is possible for everybody. The use of planes, helicopters and the skilled care of experienced polar guides has reduced the physically exhausting methods formerly used.

This is your big chance to reach the World Axis with the greatest feeling you ever had and to distinguish you with the desirable honour title "Polar adventurer"!
