Originally built as an ice-strengthened research vessel in Finland in 1982, she was refurbished in 2020 and converted into a passenger ship for expeditions to the polar regions. Polar Pioneerís excellent reputation for polar expedition cruising is due to her strength, maneuverability and size. She is small and nimble, which means she can sail up close to landing sites and venture where other, larger ships canít. Carrying just 48 passengers, she allows us to offer you a far more personal and intimate experience of the destination we are visiting.
