Le Commandant Charcot

Le Commandant Charcot is the first of its kind. This environmentally-friendly, luxury icebreaker provides elegant services and a refined ambiance to all who step onboard. The ship boasts a fleet of 16 Zodiacs, as well as two onboard helicopters. The two panoramic restaurants provide an enchanting atmosphere during dinner, while the Spa allows guests to relax and be pampered after a day full of adventure. The innovative design of the ship allows the Icebreaker to deliver you on real polar odyssey expeditions to the extreme north and the wilderness of Antarctica.
