Artic love by Ana Bru

“A while ago, someone told me that I would reach the stars one day. Among them, the ‘pole star’, which would also take me to a place beyond my dreams.
Well, they were right. What I didn’t know is that I would be smitten by the ‘Arctic bug’ along the way and that there is no cure… (at least no antidote that I know of).”

So far, so near

Never before in the history of Mankind have the Arctic and Antarctica been so accessible. They are still very distant and wild destinations, absolutely, but anyone can get there now in complete safety regardless of age or physical condition. Far behind us are the enormous risks faced by pioneers such as Franklin, Nansen, Amundsen, Peary, Scott, Shackleton and a whole plethora of other legendary explorers.

Personally, I have had the great fortune of discovering these places alongside the best professional polar explorers, such as José Manuel Naranjo or the unbeatable guide Javier Arjona. Each journey has always begun with one very clear priority: traveller safety is paramount. That has always been and still is the case, because we continue and will continue to conquer the world until the end of our days.

Travel to the North Pole in an aircraft and take this opportunity to discover one of the most isolated parts of the planet in a unique way.

OceanSky Cruises is ready for the adventure of travelling to such an incredibly inhospitable destination: variable ice conditions and everything that makes this trip such a unique adventure. For these reasons, each expedition will be unique. Everything is ready for the aircraft to ride the wind and harness the wide range of potential weather conditions.

From the northernmost settlement in the world, we will fly north and make the most of the favourable tail winds.

You will be able to admire the landscape as we fly over icebergs while watching polar bears, whales and other exceptional wildlife. Each expedition will be unique.

All the while, you can sit back and relax to enjoy the culinary delights of our award-winning chef.

Get ready for an incredible adventure because once we land, you will be able to explore the environment with our excellent expedition guide. He will help you discover the climate and nature of this Arctic region and the constantly changing environment of the North Pole.

SVALBARD ISLANDS

The Svalbard archipelago is a wild place. In fact, the city of Longyearbyen on Spitsbergen - the largest of these islands - is one of the northernmost and remotest settlements on Earth.

The roads here are few, so you will need dog sledding and snowmobiles to explore the surrounding nature.

But be careful! There might be polar bears around.

The Nordic countries offer mysterious atmospheric phenomena that only occur beyond certain latitudes.

The tilted axis of the Earth and the magnetic field that passes through the core of our planet result in these beautiful and spectacular manifestations, which you will witness with your own eyes while fully immersed in the surrounding nature.

Solid links between people and cultures were created by the great achievements of the past and they inspire us to strive towards a promising future.

For the first explorers, the Arctic was an impossible challenge to navigate using conventional tools because magnetic compasses become more and more useless the further north you travel.

As a result, flying over the North Pole required a new form of navigation. This new method was Grid Navigation, in which a grid was superimposed over the area instead of using true north or magnetic north as a reference. Nowadays, satellite navigation means that travel through the Arctic region is even less arduous.

No ecological footprint

Trailblazing means venturing into the unknown or unexplored and learning things that nobody else can teach us. Being adventurous drives us to evolve because we move beyond the boundaries of our own limitations.
Nonetheless, success requires a commitment to balance and the beauty of one of the remotest places on the planet. We will therefore visit the Arctic without leaving a single mark on the snow and without interfering with nature. It will be a peaceful visit that respects the sensitivity of wildlife at the North Pole.

Innovation, design and sustainability

The first flight is scheduled to take place between spring 2023 and autumn 2024. The final dates will be announced 12 months before departure.

The Airlander aircraft is a combination of ship, aeroplane and helicopter. With an average cruising speed of 90 km/h, you will enjoy a calm, gentle and quiet flight.

The aircraft is extremely fuel efficient because it uses helium gas, making it much lighter than a conventional aeroplane.

By using aerodynamic lift, the Airlander can also adjust its flying altitude and thereby harness the force of the wind.

As an aircraft passenger, you will enjoy an exclusive suite with a private bathroom and panoramic views from the Infinity Lounge on board the aircraft.

Everything tastes better with these views. Sit down, relax and enjoy our Arctic-themed menu prepared by our famous chef in the Altitude Bar.

Furthermore, the air quality in our unpressurised cabin is better than inside an aeroplane. You will therefore breathe better and sleep more peacefully. The experience will be much more pleasing to the eyes and skin, and you will taste the delightful food and wine better during your experience.

All this will take place within an incredible space because the design possibilities and choice of materials for our aircraft have raised the bar in terms of air travel excellence.

The values upheld by OceanSky Cruises

1/
Utmost safety

Your safety is our highest priority. OceanSky Cruises benefits from the experience of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) in terms of safety and guidelines related to passenger safety, search and rescue, biosafety, wildlife and operational procedures.

2/
Exclusivity for a select few

There are only eight (8) double cabins on the hybrid aircraft, meaning that this journey is made with a small and exclusive group. Each expedition has a maximum limit of 16 passengers. That is how OceanSky can also guarantee improvements in safety and a smaller impact on the immaculate Arctic ecosystem.

3/
Experienced crew

Both our crew and our expeditionary leader have been selected on their experience in the Arctic. Their knowledge of the exceptional flying conditions in the north and their prior experience on experimental journeys is of premium value.

4/
Sustainability

The Airlander consumes much less fuel in flight than a conventional aeroplane because it uses lighter-than-air technology. The aircraft is lifted by the buoyancy of helium, so much less drive force is required (and therefore much less fuel) to raise it off the ground.

Space is limited

Regain your passion and treat yourself to the most unique experience there is. Rest assured, it will mark a before and after in your life. Bookings will be accepted in the order they are received.
