Calling all pioneering travellers; unleash your inner polar explorer with this once-in-a-lifetime expedition, guaranteed to satisfy any cravings for true adventure. At Regent, we'll give you the rare opportunity to stand at the top of the world, reaching the North Pole aboard the most powerful icebreaker vessel ever built. Those without a sense of adventure need not read on.
Comfortably aboard a nuclear-powered icebreaker, you'll embark on an epic voyage safe in the knowledge that the I/B 50 Years of Victory is making light work of the thick ice and unpredictable wildernesses that lie ahead. Disembark at precisely 90 degrees north, to set foot on the frozen sea, enjoy a champagne toast and get photographic proof of your adventure. This itinerary also visits Franz Josef Land; the heaving glaciated archipelago of Russia's far north is home to historic remnants of some of the earliest polar expeditions and, if you're lucky, a population of polar bears.

The Hotel Cosmos and Moskva were both excellent! We had the most wonderful time...particularly impressive was the train journey and the way we were met at both ends. Thank you
The guides we had in both cities were exellent - our thanks to them. All the paperwork from Regent Holidays was thorough and a great help. Service received from Christina was exceptional and very personal. Thank you!
Thank you! The guides in both Moscow (Sergey) and St Petersburg (Olga) were excellent.
The staff at Regent Holidays were outstanding in their efforts to get us and our travelling companions home when we were stuck in Moscow due to the Volanic Ash Cloud. Their constant contact with us made a very stressful situation bearable.
Hotel Cosmos in Moscow and the one used in St Petersburg both very good. This was a truly memorable trip where full use was made of the time available. Comfortable hotels, good food and full of interest from beginning to end.
Your local guides were very good and helpful and the tours were good in covering the main places to see. Russian receptionists still have a lot to learn about giving a service and being helpful! Food OK but not great.
The local guides were excellent and although the food at the Hotel Cosmos in Moscow was rather mediocre - this was the best holiday we have had!
Both hotels (Hotel Cosmos and Hotel Moskva) provided clean rooms, serviced regularly and buffet-style meals were good. Our local guides in Moscow (Irina) and St Petersburg (Eera) were excellent. Helpful in every way, charming, efficient, witty and extremely knowledgeable. They both made our holiday in Russia a truly happy and memorable experience.
