At the boundaries of the Arctic territories, PONANT invites you on the inaugural cruise of Le Commandant-Charcot, the first hybrid electric polar exploration vessel.
This exceptional 15-day voyage between Iceland and Greenland will take you to discover the emblematic sites of the polar adventure led by the famous French explorer, Jean-Baptiste Charcot.
Your journey will start in Le Havre, which has been the starting point for many expeditions in direction of the frozen territories of the north. After passing the Rockall Rock, frequently battered by impressive waves, you will sail along the coast of the Alftanes Peninsula, in the south-west of Iceland. In this region, haunted by the sinking of the Pourquoi Pas? IV, you will take part in a small ceremony at the site where the wrecked ship lies: a very emotional moment.
You will then reach the shores of Greenland to sail along the majestic and mysterious Blosseville Coast. You will discover the Scoresby Sund, the world’s largest fjord network. The Arctic will then reveal itself to you such as you had always imagined it: clad in a thick layer of ice and snow with sparkling reflections and spellbinding silence.
