Be among the first to sail aboard Le Jacques-Cartier, one of the latest additions to the PONANT fleet, and celebrate its inaugural season during an 11-day cruise along the most stunning shores of Northern Europe, between the United-Kingdom and Norway.
You will embark in Bergen, famous for its Hanseatic wharf which still carries a few traces of the rich historic past of the city founded by the Vikings.
From the small and charming village of Olden, located a few kilometres from Jostedalsbreen National Park, which is home to one of the last ice caps in Europe, you will be able to admire the magnificent Briksdal glacier.
Your ship will then sail towards the Geiranger Fjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before making its way to the small colourful and cosmopolitan towns of Alesund and Stavanger, where you will be able to admire the wonderfully preserved fishermen’s houses that date from the 18th century.
You will then have the privilege of sailing in the famous “Lysefjord” (light fjord), flanked by granite cliffs.
Le Jacques-Cartier will then head to Amsterdam. Famous for its museums, you will also fall under the charm of the incredible flower market and the superb façades of the beautiful houses.
When your ship calls at Antwerp, do not miss the chance to visit the Grand Place to admire the magnificent 16th- and 17th-century merchant houses.
After sailing along the River Thames, your cruise will end in London.
