Ponant Cruises - The Great Adventure - Discover the Antarctic!

15 Nights Departing 28 February 2020

" Adding South Georgia will enhance your antartic experience" 

Jim and Eve report on Ponant " We can recommend a Ponant Cruise our very recent experience on Le Lyrial met expectation - intimate small ship, comfortable cabins - all inclusive with French Flair"

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.
