Welcome to the world’s largest national park, in the heart of the splendid north-east coast of Greenland

Aboard Le Commandant Charcot, you will experience the joys of pure discovery. Let yourself be guided and surprised by the opportunities for navigation and exploration that these wild and unknown ice-covered shores provide. The ship will enable you to explore one of the most difficult regions to access in the Far North, at the end of spring.

As summer begins, the snow and the ice still envelop the landscapes of these northern lands. On your journey, you will discover the extreme climate of the Ittoqqortoormiit region. This territory shelters the northernmost community of Greenland, among which are the pole’s last hunters.

You will then set sail towards the Northeast Greenland National Park, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and a dreamlike world where coloured alpine landscapes mingle with immense glaciers and astonishing icebergs revealing their immerged presence and blue-tinged volumes beneath the surface of the dark waters. At the start of summer, the solid and powerful sea ice dictates how visitors can venture out to it.  

It is the perfect time to observe the exceptional Arctic wildlife that inhabits the region. The polar bear is king here. You might witness, roaming this white desert, a solitary male in search of the ideal hunting or fishing spot, or a mother teaching her cub the secrets of survival.

Before returning to the Icelandic coastlinesLe Commandant Charcot will attempt to reach, with respect to the environment, the north of the national park and the remote shores of Île-de-France. Discovered in 1905 by the Duke of Orléans, Île-de-France is characterised by the thick ice pack that covers it, which comes from the North Pole as a result of the Transpolar Drift.  This is a voyage in search of meaning, at the boundaries of the known world.

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. Our navigation, mainly in the fjords, will be determined by the type of ice we come across; as the fast ice must be preserved, we will take this factor into account from day to day in our itineraries. The sailing programme, outings, activities and observation of fauna cannot be guaranteed and are subject to weather and ice conditions. The experiences are unique and vary from day to day and for each departure. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while respecting safety instructions and regulations imposed by the AECO.
