In three month fans of truly fascinating and extreme rest will be able to please themselves with a new, unforgettable tourist route. The matter is that from the beginning of April 2009 Russian arctic drifting station «Barneo», which is located practically on the North Pole, will be available for tourists.

It is important to notice that, for those, who want to visit the North Pole, a special insurance is provided and for some programs a health certificate is required. It is natural, that on an ice floe there will be no spa-salons, night clubs and discos. The tourist camp will consist of a wardroom, kitchen, inhabited tents and a bath. However it is planned to open a restaurant with a Russian cuisine. Anyways, tourists will have a possibility to reach the most northern point of our planet on skis, dog teams, or by a helicopter. Time required to reach from Moscow to «Barneo» is surprisingly short – only 10 hours with a transfer in Spitsbergen, where 4-stars hotel SAS is available for tourists.

In the end of March experts find the suitable ice floe drifting around the North Pole, throw on it fuel and technics for constructing a landing strip. Then heavy planes, which bring tents, kitchen, heating systems and everything else required for a normal life of people, land there. The base exists only one month, and then gathers and taken away on continent.
