Episode

This report accompanies a polar cargo ship through the Arctic Sea and provides a rare insight into the interior of the Russian nuclear-powered icebreaker float.

Along the north coast of Russia, a land of climatic extremes, lies one of the most difficult to navigate straits in the world. The Northern Sea route is a 6,000 kilometer shipping lane through the Polar Sea.

For the container ships that supply the coastal industrial centers like Norilsk in the winter, the icy route cannot be cruised alone. A total of 3 nuclear-powered icebreakers must tow them through the meters of ice.
