Le Commandant Charcot - 270 Guests

In The Ice Of The Arctic, From Greenland To Svalbard


Transfer + flight Longyearbyen/Paris

Enjoy an exceptional experience roaming the Far North, as close as possible to the Arctic’s most legendary islands, from majestic Greenland to the immaculate territories of the Svalbard archipelago. During a brand-new 19-day exploration, you will sail into the heart of the ice aboard Le Commandant Charcot, in the footsteps of the great explorers and meeting the Greenlandic Inuit people. Plunge into the history of these remote territories in the relaxed setting of an exceptional ship, during a period of extreme conditions when the ice still envelops the wild and deserted landscape.

Thanks to Le Commandant Charcot, the first hybrid electric polar exploration ship, you will brave the elements, in a season that is inaccessible to the majority of ships, to reach Greenland and the Scoresby Sound region. In the heart of this hostile yet sublime world of ice, you will navigate in the wake of Jean-Baptiste Charcot, who was deeply connected to the Inuit land, where vestiges of his passage remain. The sumptuous decor is made up of snow-topped peaks and majestic fjords, icebergs of poetic shapes, and ice as far as the eye can see.

You will then set sail towards the Northeast Greenland National Park, the largest national park in the world and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve: here, the trappers’ cabins are lost in the immensity of the magically coloured alpine landscapes and the impressive glaciers. You will go where few have had the chance, to the sites of the Arctic tales written by Jorn Riel. Polar bears and musk oxen live in these distant lands and you may be lucky enough to spot them on the horizon.

The shores of the Nordaust-Svalbard Nature Reserve will appear progressively on the horizon. This total immersion in the polar desert in search of the sea ice offers the promise of an unforgettable adventure. You will admire Europe’s largest ice cap and the impressive fjords that punctuate this icy landscape.
