Cruise Antarctica with Ponant in 2022/23

Ponant brings you two exceptional polar expedition cruise itineraries to discover the most beautiful sites between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula. Succumb to the enchantment of the breathtaking landscapes inhabited by astonishing wildlife.

The Great Austral Loop – a 16 day cruise charting a course for the Falkland Islands, whose wild beauty and lush moors are sure to captivate you. Continue to South Georgia with impressive glaciers and black-sand beaches where large colonies of king penguins have taken up residence.

Emblematic Antarctica – an 11 day cruise starting with a crossing of the mythical Drake Passage, where you may be escorted by albatrosses and Cape petrels, the sentinels of these often-choppy waters.

Wildlife encounters will no doubt be one of the highlights of your experience. Adelie, chinstrap and gentoo penguins, humpback whales, seals and seabirds will provide you with cherished lifelong memories.

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

Ponant will operate three stunning expedition ships on these itineraries – step aboard L’Austral, Le Boréal or Le Lyrial and enjoy all the traditional Ponant benefits of outstanding modern ships, a range of luxury facilities including a choice of restaurants and open bar. Whichever expedition you choose, you will experience the exceptional levels of comfort and service that are the very hallmark of Ponant.
