Ready your camera for this unforgettable Ponant Cruises' Emblematic Antarctica luxury expedition voyage! 

Prior to your flight to Ushuaia you may have a chance to take in Buenos Aires with the opportunity to explore this vibrant city that’s never seems to sleep.  Alive with a Latin passion that dances a tantalising tango, Buenos Aires will cast her spell on you!  Explore the streets lined with beautiful buildings reminiscent of European architecture, enjoy a meal at one of the many steakhouses or dance the night away.

Then your luxury package begins, you board your flight to Ushuaia from Argentina in time for embarkation when you’ll be welcomed aboard Ponant Cruises’ elegant and luxurious Le Boreal.  Effortlessly combining French chic with casual, you’ll want for nothing whilst on board, yet feel completely comfortable.

Taking you to the heart of Antarctica, Le Boreal will allow you to get up close to Antarctica’s incredible wildlife where you may be lucky enough to see Gentoo, Adelie and Chinstrap penguins, whales, seals, leopard seals and numerous sea birds.  As you head into Neko Harbour, you can’t help but marvel at this magnificent bay surrounded by mountains and ice.  This is Antarctica – a world away from mobile phones, traffic jams and daily chaos!

Here, you’ll have time to admire the drifting icebergs, ice floe (or pack ice), calving of imposing icebergs and tall snowy mountains and follow in the footsteps of the great explorers.  Enjoy the antics of the penguins as they go about their daily lives and learn about the history of the whaling stations and the sailors of yesteryear.  You’ll appreciate the resilience and incredible seamanship of the early explorers who navigated these waters without modern technology.

With on-board experts and specialised Zodiac excursions, you’ll have the opportunity to explore and learn about this incredible continent and her flora and fauna, before returning to the luxury and comfort of your ship each day where you can expect exceptional facilities, gourmet cuisine and impeccable service.
