The Great Adventure

Discover the Antarctic with PONANT!

Jean-Baptiste Charcot, Adrien de Gerlache, Ernest Shackleton: sail in the wake of these great Antarctic explorers during a 16-day polar expedition cruise organised by PONANT.

Your trip will begin in Ushuaia, the Argentinian capital of Tierra del Fuego which offers breathtaking landscapes.

After crossing the mythical Drake Passage, your ship will make its way to the White Continent, realm of the unexpected. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this extreme environment where nature reigns supreme will reveal to you its most beautiful secrets through numerous discoveries.

Gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins, humpback whales, seals and seabirds: these are some of the encounters you will most likely have the chance to experience in the Antarctic Peninsula, creating indelible memories.

Each day, whether on land, aboard your ship or during a Zodiac® outing, you will be surrounded by a grandiose decor ranging from icebergs to ice floe and ancient glaciers.

You will then discover South Georgia, its impressive glaciers and its black-sand beaches where imposing colonies of king penguins have taken up residence.

Your arrival in the city of Montevideo in Uruguay will mark the end of your trip into the heart of these stunning, faraway lands. 

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.
