A 17-day trip in the southernmost waters of our planet to reach the continent of superlatives, that is what PONANT is offering you with this fabulous expedition cruise. The icy landscapes of this other world succeed one another day after day and the polar light leaves you with an intense feeling of peace and serenity.

Tierra del Fuego fades into the distance as your ship heads for the Falkland Islands. Composing the wild beauty of the shorelines are beaches of white sand, jagged cliffs, windswept moors, and tall grass swaying with the wind.

Your ship will soon take to the seas once again, to reach the mountainous island of South Georgia. It is here, in the middle of the black-sand beaches dominated by snow-covered mountains, that Sir Ernest Shackleton miraculously ran aground during the famous Endurance Odyssey in 1916. You will travel back in time to (re)discover this fabulous saga and life at this little-known time in history.

Further south, the South Orkney Islands will reveal themselves. Latitude wise, you are now above the mythical Screaming Sixties. The Scotia Arc formed a mountain range that rises on the horizon in the middle of the Antarctic Ocean. You might get the chance to call at Laurie Island, where the Orcadas research station is established in a former whaling station.

You will ultimately land on the frozen shores of the – nearly – inaccessible White Continent, Antarctica. The colour white takes on a thousand nuances as it covers the icebergs, glaciers, mountains and frozen sea all around you. You are one of the rare few travellers to have laid eyes on this legendary land, the theatre of the greatest expeditions and the witness of the most extraordinary adventures.

Throughout your trip, our team of naturalist guides will be sharing with you the secrets of these faraway lands inhabited by unique wildlife. Discover the vast territory of the penguinsAdelie, king, chinstrap, Gentoo, Magellanic, southern rockhopper –, albatrosses, numerous species of seals, and majestic whales blowing on the horizon.

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice 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 IAATO.
