Embark with Ponant aboard Le Soléal for an unforgettable expedition cruise to discover the wonders of Arctic Alaska.

Over 17 days, cruising between Russia and the United States from Seward to Nome, you will have the chance to sail in the Bering Strait and discover extraordinary landscapes combining ice, volcanoes, and tundra dotted with the ephemeral flowers that bloom during the Arctic summer.

You’ll first reach Geographic Harbor, situated in the heart of the stunning Katmai National Park and Reserve. There is a strong chance you’ll be able to observe grizzlies, as they reign supreme here.

Le Soléal will then make its way along the Alaska Peninsula, an emerged part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Here, each island is a volcano crowned with ice. The Aleutian Islands form a barrier between the Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean, so the marine wildlife here is particularly abundant.

Listed with UNESCO, the nature reserve on Wrangel Island is a unique ecosystem where the greatest biodiversity in the Arctic can be found. It is home to a large population of walruses, countless sea birds, and of course the lord of the Arctic: the polar bear.

At the end of your cruise, you will disembark in the small city of Nome for your return flight to Seattle.

Subject to ice and weather conditions. The expedition highlights and itineraries described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.

Visits to Wrangel Island are subject to permission being granted by the Russian authorities. This port of calls can only be confirmed once this authorisation has been received, six months before the cruise departure date.
