FLIGHT MONTREAL/SAINT PIERRE & MIQUELON + TRANSFER


With featured guests Mike Louagie and Sue Flood, Photo Ambassadors.

Le Commandant Charcot, a technological wonder capable of sailing in the most extreme environments, is opening up new horizons in unrivalled comfort and invites you to explore the Saint Lawrence. This river is not accessible to traditional ships in winter, so this exclusive and all-new PONANT journey lifts the veil on unique great open spaces, where the waters, once turbulent, freeze into ice, and where the forests are dressed in an immaculate white coat.

You will sail among different states and forms of ice - from drifting and fragmented sea ice to solid ice - and will be able to admire the evolution of this spectacular natural scenery from the reassuring cocoon of Le Commandant Charcot. In these lands, only the murmur of broken ice, bearing mysteries and legends, disturbs the calmness. Aboard the ship or on shore, you will seize the opportunities to explore these places where nature reigns supreme and in never-ending variety: boreal forests of immaculate conifers, snow-covered valleys and a sea of ice. Set off to discover this enchanting environment, thanks to winter activities such as hiking or snowshoeing, dog sledding or ice fishing. Perhaps you will be lucky enough to observe the emblematic caribou and moose in their natural habitat.

In this region, where souls are filled with deep serenity, the colourful houses and fishing huts stand valiantly. Their sparkling facades, in bright and vibrant colours, defy the harshness of the winter landscape. Here, where there is “no other place where you can feel the cold with as much warmth” (a Saguenay proverb), you will experience the welcome and conviviality of the Quebecois and the Innu people during privileged encounters. These indigenous communities, part of the First Nations, will tell you about their history, legends and ancestral traditions.

A journey suspended in time, where lives blend with the natural elements and where the wild beauty of nature is revealed in its full splendour.

The itinerary is subject to modifications. On board, the sailing programme, outings and activities cannot be guaranteed and are subject to weather and ice conditions

Sue Flood

"I am very much looking forward to returning to the St. Lawrence River area of Canada, after filming there with the BBC during the making of The Blue Planet series. There should be some wonderful winter photography opportunities during our voyage - wildlife, dramatic icescapes and cultural scenes in the Quebecois winter. And, hopefully the Aurora borealis or Northern lights. I will be there to help you make the most of these unique opportunities during this new expedition."
