Pelorus, the ultimate experiential travel and yachting company, has announced a new partnership with OceanSky Cruises to become its ‘Expedition Partner’, supporting the development and progression of ultra-sustainable airship travel. Together, Pelorus and OceanSky Cruises will usher in a new age of no-footprint voyages to unlock and gain access to some of the most remote and carefully preserved corners of the world.
As part of the relationship, Pelorus will deliver comprehensive research, planning and logistics to build bespoke private experiences pre-, post- and on board OceanSky Cruises industry leading ‘lighter than air’ airships.
The first charters are planned to take flight in 2024 where guests will have the opportunity to cruise in complete comfort and luxury from Svalbard to what is often considered ‘ground zero’ for climate change; the North Pole.
With details of the comprehensive Pelorus x OceanSky Cruises experience being kept under wraps for the time being, modern luxury explorers can expect to embark on a 36-hour round trip cruising at 1,000ft above sea level. Passengers will take in a unique perspective of the majestic landscape and its wildlife while dining on the finest cuisine and learning from onboard polar experts and scientists, who have dedicated their careers to the research and preservation of the region.
The peak of this experience is the extraordinarily rare opportunity to drop down onto the exact location of The North Pole to enjoy a sustainable dining experience and spend a few precious hours at the very top of our planet.
Carl-Oscar Lawaczeck, CEO of OceanSky Cruises, states: “We partner with the best experiential companies in the world: to make sure we execute the future of airship travel in the most excellent way possible. Pelorus is a leader in the market curating bespoke adventures, and together we're delighted to be pioneering this unique expedition to the North Pole.”
Geordie Mackay-Lewis, Co-founder & CEO of Pelorus comments: “It’s not every day that opportunities become available to partner with a brand who is looking to move the needle quite as much as Carl-Oscar and his team at OceanSky Cruises. At Pelorus, innovation in sustainable travel is at the very forefront of our minds and business. We are devoted to crafting perspective changing experiences for our clients. We’re incredibly excited about the future of this collaboration and possibilities it creates to showcase remote parts of the planet in a much more environmentally conscious way.”
More information about the exact details of Pelorus x OceanSky Cruises charter experiences will be released in 2023 with plans already being formulated for additional routes and regions.
