We attended a very informative and entertaining lecture, given by one of the staff historians, about the Northwest Passage and Mapping the Arctic. This gentleman reminds us of Sir Richard Attenborough, and we decided he would be a compelling interview subject. During the lecture, we learned the first time a ship reached the North Pole was in 1977 and that our journey is significant because it is the 100th time an icebreaker is carving a path to 90 degrees latitude, the top of the world.
If anyone has money to spare (lots) and wants to go on an
adventure to practically any cold-weather environment on Earth, there are very
few companies that can make that happen.
Quark Expeditions is not only our broadcast partner, they are the best
polar excursion company in operation today.
They are taking very good care of us!
