With nineteen men the Duke of Abruzzi sailed in the steam brigantine, Stella Polare, in June 1899, to Archangel, and then across the Barents Sea to Rudolph Island, Franz Josef Land, to winter in Teplitz Bay. The objective was to undertake marches on the ice of the Arctic Basin in attempts to reach the North Pole. They achieved 83°16’ North, the highest latitude achieved at that time by a sledge party.
