In collaboration with National Geographic Expeditions.  

PONANT invites you on a polar expedition cruise to the heart of the icy realm that is the Antarctic Peninsula. Embark on an unforgettable 14-day voyage and succumb to the enchantment of the breathtaking landscapes inhabited by astonishing wildlife. 

The start of your cruise will be marked by the crossing of the mythical Drake Passage, during which you will probably be escorted by several albatrosses and Cape petrels, the sentinels of these often-choppy waters.

Your ship will then reach the White Continent, realm of the unexpected. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this extreme environment where nature reigns supreme will reveal to you its most beautiful secrets through numerous discoveries. As you sail through the unspoiled landscapes of the Antarctic Peninsula for 8 unforgettable days, you will have time to marvel at their uniqueness, get a true sense of their sheer magnitude, and touch the sublime of such a life-enriching experience in an extraordinary environment. With each passing day, your gaze and senses will become sharper, giving you a deeper insight into this untouched world and allowing you to fully enjoy the rare intensity of each moment. 

On this uninhabited land, which was not explored until the 19th century, your encounters with the wildlife will no doubt be one of the highlights of your experience. The Gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins, humpback whales, seals and seabirds will provide you with cherished lifelong memories. Nature will treat you to wonderful spectacles and you will the privilege of becoming not only a witness to the beauty of these ecosystems but also an ambassador for their conservation.

Each day, whether on land, aboard your ship or during a Zodiac® outing, you will be surrounded by a grandiose decor ranging from icebergs to ice floe and ancient glaciers.

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. Landings on certain sites and the observation of certain wildlife cannot be guaranteed. They vary from day to day, making each PONANT cruise a unique experience. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while complying with the safety rules and instructions imposed by the IAATO.
