Through PONANT's alliance with The Explorers Club, this voyage will feature George Kourounis, explorer, storm chaser and TV presenter who has spent 25 years documenting the extreme forces of nature and natural phenomena around the world such as tornadoes, hurricanes, volcanoes, floods and the effects of climate change.
George Kourounis will be accompanied by a French interpreter during lectures.
PONANT invites you to set sail aboard Le Boréal for a memorable 14-day expedition cruise to the discovery of Baffin Bay. You will embark in Kangerlussuaq for an unforgettable journey in the heart of the most magnificent Arctic landscapes.
The first destination is the west coast of Greenland which will welcome you with its majestic icebergs, colourful villages encircled by mountains and its basalt formations. This is the ideal opportunity for meeting the local population and learning about Greenland Inuit culture.
Further north, Baffin Bay will reveal its remote villages of peat houses where the last bear hunters and narwhal fishers live in accordance with their ancestral traditions in the middle of the Arctic tundra. You will also see the remains of ancient Inuit civilisations and will discover Savissivik, the largest 'iceberg graveyard' in Greenland.
During the last part of your cruise, you will be able to enjoy really exploring Baffin Bay; you will look for the ice floe and try to spot polar bears. You will head south to reach Evighedsfjorden, which means the "eternity fjord" in Danish, where the landscapes made up of glaciers, tundra and jagged cliffs will help you end this journey on a high.
We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. The itinerary, 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 AECO.
