Explore the Arctic Aboard the Fram

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 in this 360-degree virtual Google Expedition.
