MS Explorer heading into Arctic sea ice near Spitzbergen

In 2007 we travelled on the MS Explorer from Longyearbyen in the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, which is inside the Arctic Circle, on a cruise that took us north into the polar sea ice. At our most northern point we were only a few hundred kilometres from the North Pole. Sadly, a few months later, the Explorer sank in the Antarctic after hitting an iceberg.
