Embark aboard L’Austral for a 23-day luxury expedition from Kangerlussuaq to Nome.  

We are inviting you to set sail for the Far North, well beyond the Arctic Circle, to a legendary, highly coveted maritime route: the Northwest Passage, the only possible shipping route between the Atlantic and the Pacific.  

In Winter, this “roof of the world” is transformed into a majestic white desert; whilst in Summer, for a few short weeks, the temperature rises enough for the ice to melt. Life reappears, nature is reborn, the mythical route is finally free and we can breathe in the unique scent of great adventure.

During your cruise, you will first sail along the west coast of Greenland to discover charming Inuit villages and some of the largest icebergs in the Arctic.

You will then sail across Baffin Bay to begin your unforgettable journey westward. On Beechey Island, retrace the steps of the Franklin expedition, before marvelling at the sublime canyon at Fury Beach.

Next, admire the incredible wildlife at Fairway Rock, home to many marine mammals and sea birds.

This is an exceptional crossing that promises thrills and unforgettable memories.

We are privileged guests in these remote lands where we are at the mercy of weather, ice, tidal and current 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 AECO.
