Ship Type: Ice Breaker Ship

The Kapitan Khlebnikov is a world-renowned Soviet icebreaker and former research vessel. This peerless, authentic polar-class icebreaker holds the passenger ship record for the most crossings of the Northwest Passage and has famously circumnavigated Antarctica – twice. Built in 1981 by Finland’s Wärtsilä Company and one of four Kapitan Sorokin-class icebreakers, Kapitan Khlebnikov wraps comfortable surrounds in a formidable, ice-reinforced vessel capable of breaking ice as thick as two metres. Powered by 24,000 horsepower diesel-electric engines, designed for conquering the harshest conditions and allows the next-level experiential exploration.

Kapitan Khlebnikov comfortably accommodates up to 110 guests in well appointed and spacious cabins and suites all featuring large windows that can be opened and en suite facilities. Common areas include large open decks, two dining rooms, a digitally-equipped theatre-style lecture room, heated indoor pool, sauna, gymnasium, fully-stocked library, bar, lounge and four-person elevator.

Guests can enjoy exceptional views from the bridge, via open bridge policy, deck and various viewing areas around this remarkable vessel, while a fleet of 10 Zodiacs manned by the experienced expedition team ensures maximum time for ice exploration

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
