In 1926 Amundsen and 15 others, including Ellsworth and Riiser-Larsen from his flight the previous year, took two days to make the first crossing of the Arctic Sea, via the North Pole, in the airship Norge. Norge was designed by Umberto Nobile who Amundsen would die searching for in 1928. With the claims of Frederick Cook, Robert Peary, and Richard Byrd all cast in doubt it is possible that Amundsen was the first to reach both poles. Karrow p.18.
