Set sail with PONANT aboard Le Champlain for a brand-new 11-day expedition cruise to explore the natural and cultural treasures of the Great Lakes of North America, surrounded by flamboyant nature painted in the colours of the Indian summer.  

Departing from Milwaukee, you will sail on Lake Michigan, a veritable inland sea, and enjoy the stunning panoramas around the largest freshwater lake located entirely in the United States.

You will then sail to Lake Huron, dotted with myriad islands offering stunning landscapes, white rocks plunging into the sapphire-blue waters of the lake, craggy shores dotted with pine trees with sculptural shapes, and magnificent forests with a mix of deciduous and resinous varieties. Multiple original viewpoints will reveal themselves during rich explorations, including in Georgian Bay. From unspoiled islands to nature reserves and picturesque villages, the history of the region will take shape with each unique opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the Indigenous communities, the trappers, and the first European settlers.

Le Champlain will then sail on the St. Clair River and through the Detroit river before reaching Lake Erie. At Pointe Pelee National Park, designated as a Ramsar site and home to a marsh with a remarkable ecosystem, bird lovers will enjoy watching many endemic and migratory species.

Next, Le Champlain will make its way along the canal connecting Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. When the ship stops at Port Colborne, you will be able to marvel at the awe-inspiring sight that is Niagara Falls. These three powerful, world-famous cataracts are a stunning show of nature.

Your cruise will draw to an end in Toronto, your disembarkation port.
