Overview

With featured guest Nicolas Vanier, French adventurer, writer and director.

This PONANT itinerary is your chance to embark on an 8-day expedition cruise to Greenland. In Kangerlussuaq, aboard  Le Boréal, you will embark for an unforgettable journey in the heart of the most magnificent Arctic landscapes.

After first calling at the steep cliffs where nest many birds in Evighedsfjorden, the fjord of Eternity, you will reach Sisimiut, Greenland's second largest city, a colourful port nestling between undulating hills. The world of ice will open up to you during this cruise along the north-west coast of Greenland. 

You will cross Disko Bay for the first time to reach the edges of the Eqi Glacier, an icy giant with crystalline reflections, and the Paul-Emile Victor research station.

Disko Bay and the colourful villages of Uummannaq encircled by mountains and basalt formations will welcome you next with their majestic icebergs - some of the largest in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the ideal opportunity for meeting the local population and learning about Greenland's Inuit culture.

During your cruise and zodiac outings, you will have many opportunities to admire an abundant and varied marine fauna with seals and whales, not to mention the many species of seabirds.
