Ponant
 

While the climate is a main ticket item, the fascinating and rare wildlife coupled with the awe-inspiring ferocity of Arctic glaciers are just the tip of the iceberg of what you'll be seeing during our Arctic Cruise.

Discovering the Arctic is an immersive experience that many can only dream of, from the exceptional immersive through to the rare intensity of the Arctic’s beauty, you will have an experience of a lifetime that will continue to amaze you long after your return from this incredible region.

Over the 8 days at sea aboard Le Boréal, in the company of our specialist teams, you will discover the exceptional flora and fauna that lives in these extreme conditions, where temperatures reach -30C in winter.

Outings and shore visits in Zodiac® inflatables with your naturalist guides including hikes and sailing in Spitsbergen’s fjords are just the beginning of an incredible trip.

This journey will take you on the trail of walruses, which can be admired near the 14th July Glacier, as well as the traces of the polar bear, the lord of the Arctic, which you will be able to admire in its natural environment.

Cruising through the icy seas of the Arctic is going to be a fantastic journey that offers the best of the northern region of our planet while earning CPD through an excellent academic program, networking sessions and expert forums.
