PONANT invites you to experience the exceptional by discovering the east coast of Greenland in Spring, during a brand-new 11-day cruise. In this season, where a thick layer of ice protects access to the shores and the day stretches into infinity, you will have a unique opportunity to venture into an extremely remote part of the world, source of fascination to generations of explorers. 

Aboard Le Commandant Charcot, the first hybrid electric polar exploration ship, you will brave the elements to reach the region of Ammassalik. Between immense glaciers, winding fjords carrying gigantic icebergs, polar caps and thick patches of ice floe, you will discover a nature enhanced by the special luminosity of the midnight sun. In this season, the sun’s rays lie level with the horizon diffusing a magical palette of blue, magenta, purple and pink.

Then you will continue sailing ever further north until you reach the coast of Blosseville. This wild region of jagged peaks was identified in 1833 by Commander Blosseville during a voyage that caused his disappearance and that of his crew: an enigmatic wreck that would lead to one of the biggest French exploration missions two years later.

Relive this period in the history of sailing during this unique cruise which will take you also further north to the Ittoqqortoormiit Region, to the heart of this hostile but sublime realm of ice.

 

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. Our navigation, mainly in the fjords, will be determined by the type of ice we come across; as the coastal ice must be preserved, we will take this factor into account from day to day in our itineraries. The sailing programme, outings, activities and observation of fauna cannot be guaranteed and are subject to weather and ice conditions. The experiences are unique and vary from day to day and for each departure. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while respecting safety instructions and regulations imposed by the AECO.
