Moving Day at the North Pole

How do you move 18 polar explorers, a dogs and more than 150 tons of cargo from one of the most desolate and harshest environments on the planet?

Simple, rent a big moving van or the 23,ooo displacement tons, 490 length over all nuclear powered icebreaker Yamal. Here’s a rockin’ video of it all.

Here’s one of our earlier posts with video of this extraordinary ship.

  1. I’ve never been underway- other than my two weeks on Eagle- so I have nothing to compare this too. However, I find it really cool that this ship is able to just move so effortlessly though the ice. Then again, I find it pretty cool that any of the worlds icebreakes do so.
