50 Years of Victory

Also known as 50 Let Pobody, this ship is one of the world’s largest, most-powerful nuclear icebreakers. It's an Ice Class LL1 vessel, which is the highest possible rating. A unique spoon-shaped bow, the first of its kind, makes 50 Years of Victory well equipped to handle all Arctic elements. It's also powered by a 75,000-horsepower nuclear engine that fuels one-of-a-kind explorations. This sturdy ship makes it possible to take an unforgettable journey to the North Pole!

Built for Arctic Exploration

Made of stainless steel, this first-ever Arctic class icebreaker is designed to plow through sea ice of up to 9.2 feet! The strongest icebreaker ever created provides ultimate protection against adverse Arctic conditions.

North Pole

In 2008, 50 Years of Victory made its maiden voyage to the Northeast Passage for Quark Expeditions, which previously made the first tourist transit to the North Pole in 1991. Its LL1 ice-breaking class and spoon-shaped bow give this powerhouse vessel the ability to make such an awe-inspiring journey. Trekking to the top of the world is a bucket-list item and truly a voyage unlike any other.

Activities Onboard 50 Years of Victory
