A Russian floating research station near the North Pole could open its doors for annual tourist trips by April 1, polar explorer Artur Chilingarov said on Monday.

The Barneo research station, just 150 km from the North Pole, has been in operation for 10 years. It converted into a touring base for about a month each year.

"We plan to open it by April 1," Chilingarov, who is also Russia's envoy on international cooperation in the Arctic and Antarctic, told RIA Novosti.

He said the Barneo would operate in its touring capacity for a month and half this year.
