Kapitan Khlebnikov Icebreaker | Antarctica Travel Centre
 

Kapitan Khlebnikov

EXPEDITION (110 GUESTS)

Introduction

The Kapitan Khlebnikov combines power and technology with comfort and has 52 en-suite cabins and a maximum of 110 guests. This polar class icebreaker was originally designed for the ice-choked waters of norther Siberia. Its 24,000 horsepower engine and advanced ice-breaking technology allows access to places in Antarctica that no other ship can, like Snow Hill Island in the Weddell Sea on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. In addition to the fleet of Zodiacs the Kapitan Khlebnikov has two helicopters to take passengers on excursions.  It’s these helicopters that transport guests from the ship, ‘parked’ in sea-ice, closer to the Emperor penguin rookery on fast sea-ice close to Snow Hill Island.

For the 2018/19 season the Kapitan Khlebnikov is returning to offer Snow Hill Island Emperor Penguin voyages.
