PONANT invites you on an all-new expedition cruise, between the magical ice of Greenland and the charms of the island of Newfoundland. Come aboard Le Champlain for an exceptional 10-day circuit from Reykjavik to Saint Pierre and Miquelon.
From Iceland, your ship will first head for South-East Greenland. Discover Inuit culture in Ammassalik and set off to meet the inhabitants of this remote region, with deep-rooted traditions.
You will then call at Nansen Harbor, the departure point of the first ever crossing of the ice sheet by the Norwegian Fridtjof Nansen.
The final leg of your cruise to Greenland: the narrow Prins Christian Sund passage, which connects the south-east of Greenland to the south-west. Jagged mountains, rocky cliffs, waterfalls and floating ice form a wonderful wild landscape in which frolic colonies of bearded seals.
Le Champlain will then make its way south to call at Saint-John’s. The capital of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the oldest anglophone cities in North America. It is nestled in the heart of a stunning natural environment, and strolling through its historic core or along its sloping streets lined with colourful houses is an enjoyable experience.
You will disembark in Saint Pierre and Miquelon, a little piece of France located off the coast of Canada.
