The 71mtr/232ft expedition vessel Polar Pioneer is a great way to explore the polar regions. Originally built in 1982, she was a research vessel designed to navigate the polar regions with heavy sea ice thanks to her reinforced hull. She was refurbished in 2022 and can carry 48 passengers. She has 29 comfortable cabins ranging from the Captain’s Suite, mini-suite, twin cabins with private facilities, and twin and triple cabins with shared facilities. The Polar Pioneer is crewed by experts with decades of experience in polar waters and has a medic and clinic on board.
