Set sail with PONANT on an itinerary discovering the unexplored shores of the eastern coast of Greenland. During this 15-day expedition cruise, you will follow in the footsteps of the great explorers who pushed the boundaries of polar navigation from the 19th century onwards. 

From Longyearbyen in Spitsbergen, Le Boréal will make its way to Jan Mayen Island, which was very dear to CaptainJean-Baptiste Charcot. Located on the threshold of the Arctic and North Atlantic oceans, this isolated and uninhabited volcanic island was a whale hunting centre and is home to large bird colonies.

Your ship will then continue on to Greenland, known for its wild natural environments, its alpine landscapes and its majestic fjords. Sometimes a population of polar bears is spotted here, as they like its remote, still ice-covered, reliefs.

In the vastness of this island, you will discover the narrow Prince Christian Sound, a waterway connecting the south-east of Greenland to the south-west. Mountains with jagged peaks, rocky cliffs, waterfalls, and floating ice form a wonderful wild landscape in which frolic colonies of bearded seals.

During the last part of your cruise, you will sail up the West coast of Greenland. Along the way, admire the stunning Tasermiut and Ikka fjords and the blue-tinged icebergs of Narsaq. It is here, in the Qaqortoq region, that Erik the Red settled to establish what would become Greenland’s first European settlement.

Your final stop will be Kangerlussuaq, where this unforgettable cruise will end.

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. The itinerary, 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 AECO.
