Travel to the North Pole: Options for Getting to the Top of the Planet

Protect Your Bubble Dishes on Travel to see Santa this Christmas

Whether the goal is to meet Santa Claus, to have a Christmas cocktail at the North Pole, or for an extreme vacation experience this holiday, one thing is for sure: it’s going to be cold….and expensive. Protect Your Bubble educates readers on travel to the North Pole.

There’s no “true” North Pole, like many of us imagine. By definition, it’s when the Earth’s axis of rotations meets its surface (Wikipedia). Thus, the exact location of the North Pole shifts. According to Scientific American, “The instantaneous north pole is not fixed. Rather, it moves in an irregular circle caused by the fact that our planet wobbles as it rotates.” However, many tourists each year try to get as close as they can to the top of the planet. And doing so is no easy feat.

There are many expeditions that take adventure seekers on helicopter rides on the top of the Earth. Sometimes, guests can get out for a short period of time, take photos, sip vodka (a beverage that will not freeze in those Arctic conditions), and then return back to the plane with bragging rights. For the extreme adventure seekers, camping in heated tents, skydiving the “north pole,” skiing, and dog sledding are all options. These adventures can often cost around a hefty $50,000.

If this is a bit out of the tourist’s price range, there is a town in Alaska named “North Pole,” which receives loads of mail addressed to Santa Claus. The town is home to about 2,000 and boasts Christmas-themed décor, attractions and more all in celebration of Santa. Since the North Pole has no official, scientific terra firma, many travelers find this as a nice substitute.
