This sturdy ice-strengthened ship is a former research vessel that offers an intimate expedition experience. The Polar Pioneer’s lower passenger capacity means greater itinerary flexibility and more time exploring on shore or with zodiac boats, while its strength and smaller size allow access to remote areas that larger vessels cannot reach. Onboard the atmosphere is relaxed and casual with western chefs, a Russian crew of renowned ice-navigators and a highly experienced expedition team with strong connections to the polarregions. Sea kayaking is optional, while overnight camping is available at no extra cost on selected early season Antarctica departures. Fly-cruise options save time in sea crossing and provide more time for landings.
In the listing below, you can view the itineraries available to take with Polar Pioneer There are, however, further voyages available in the Arctic and Antarctica, not shown online. For more information on the following cruise options, please enquire online.
