The newest addition to our fleet is the largest, most sophisticated, and powerful icebreaker ever constructed. Twenty years in the making (launched in 2007), 50 Years of Victory is the first Arktika-class icebreaker to have a spoon-shaped bow. Boosting the efficiency is the all-new automated digital control system. The ship, designed with a stainless steel ice belt 5 meters (18 feet) wide, breaks through ice up to 2.5 meters (9.2 feet) thick. The icebreaker is driven by 2 nuclear reactors that produce 75,000 horsepower (that's an incredible 3 times the power of the Kapitan Khlebnikov). In open water, top speed can be as much as 21.4 knots.
With ample room for the maximum of 128 guests and a dedicated team of expert crew and staff the 50 Years of Victory takes you to the 'top of the world' the North Pole
Aerial sightseeing trips taken on our helicopter add a whole new dimension to this incredible voyage to the 'top of the world' the North Pole.
