Lead by Fridtjof Nansen, the Fram expedition (1893-1896) was the first attempt to reach the North Pole by drifting with ocean currents. Nansen and ship builder, Colin Archer, carefully designed a ship (the Fram) whose round shape and strong build enabled it to withstand the enormous pressure of sea ice. Freezing temperatures, polar nights, and polar bear attacks, experience the Fram expedition for yourself...hop aboard the Fram and see what it’s like to be an Arctic explorer!
