A reunion at the edge of the world…

A reunion at the edge of the world…

They say that travel is the best way to grow… and Tom would agree. Accustomed to travelling the world, the young man set off on a PONANT expedition that would hold many surprises for him.

A magical encounter at high latitude

A magical encounter at high latitude

On his first exploration of the North Pole with passengers with Le Commandant Charcot, one of our captains was able to share an intense experience with them: an encounter with a polar bear and her cubs.
A true gift from nature!

The Arctic, a ocean of ice, pristine and unsullied

The Arctic, a ocean of ice, pristine and unsullied

In recent years, the North Pole has become a barometer of the global environment: so fragile and, paradoxically, such immense power. Everything here is raw, natural and in stark contrast: a pure, unsullied continent of ice resting on an inky black sea. And at the heart of this dialogue between land and sea, the wildlife, superlative in its untamed splendour. A tale of a singular and unique expedition.

Polar bears, as white as snow

Polar bears, as white as snow

Measuring between 1.8 and 3 metres and weighing 350 to 680 kilos, the polar bear‘s characteristic white colouring is owed to the translucent and hollow hairs of its fur which reflect the sunlight off of the sea ice.
