Designed and built in Finland for polar research, the ice strengthened Akademic Ioffe, offers comfort and stability on her off the beaten track expeditions into untouched corners of the white realm.
The Akademik Ioffe and her sister ship the Akademik Vavilov offer a focus on exploration and understanding, the itineraries tailored with supreme wilderness immersion in mind. These are the ships for an adventure, safe and spacious space for heading where few people have ever been.
Adventure out on the ice by day, in the evening take in the stunning panoramic views from the outer decks, lounge in the sauna and perhaps take a dip into the polar plunge pool. Watch the wildlife from the top deck with a blanket and a steaming hot chocolate, albatross often follow by the side of the ship crossing the Drake Passage – stunning.
