In the company of Francis Latreille, Explorer-Photographer and Philippe Legrand, Communication Director, Le Boreal is offering a truly unique Arctic cruise, punctuated by a series of conferences and workshops that reveal the secrets of the great explorer-photographers. Amateur photographers can learn or perfect professional techniques and take unforgettable shots. You will travel by Zodiac inflatables in the presence of naturalist experts, to get closer to the Arctic Polar Circle.

Day 1

    Kangerlussaq, Greenland

    It all begins in Kangerlussaq tucked away at the end of a fjord north of the Arctic Circle. A complimentary group flight from Paris is Kangerlussaq is also included in your cruise fare.

    Days 2-3


      Le Boreal then slips towards llulissat, meaning the “village of icebergs”, and the stunning Disko Bay UNESCO World Heritage site. This is a truly unique stage in our journey to view the fantastic spectacle of glaciers and giant icebergs, like translucently colored sculptures following their eternal road to nowhere and seeming to sparkle with a thousand lights.

      Day 4

        Glacier Eqi

        Further north, the Eqi Glacier has an impressive beauty that sends shivers up the spine, whether from the cold or emotion we’re not sure! Here the silence is broken only by the sudden roar of falling ice. The base cabin from which Paul-Emile Victor led the French polar expeditions in the fifties is close by.

        Day 5

          Sailing along the Upernavik fjords

          Le Boreal continues her route to the North. Naturalist speakers will bring to life the history of those adventurers and their Arctic expeditions to uncertain destinations, stories which continue to feed our imaginations today. Cruise along the Upernavik Fjord.

          Day 6

            Sailing along the Melville Bay

            You will explore Melville Bay and sail amidst the ice.

            Day 7


              Savissivik, site of the Peary meteorites and the biggest “graveyards” of icebergs in the world. It is the country of narwal hunters in kayaks. This imposing cetacean is also known as the “unicorn of the seas”. You may even be lucky enough to see polar bears.

              Day 8


                Port details pending.

                Day 9

                  Pond Inlet, Canada

                  It is time to cross to the Canada Inuit homeland of nunavut, which name means “our land”. You will be calling in to the village of Pond Inlet for our first meeting with the Inuit community.

                  Day 10

                    North Arm Fjord

                    During zodiac outings, on hikes, or from the observation points on Le Boréal you will be close to the migratory bird sanctuaries on the cliffs of the north arm Fjord.

                    Day 11

                      Clyde River, Canada

                      Port details pending.

                      Day 12

                        Isabella Bay, Canada

                        Meet with the orcas and whales of Isabella Bay. All these imposing landscapes symbolise the beliefs of the Inuit for whom time is eternal - borrow some of this eternity and savour the majestic beauty of the Arctic, a land rarely trodden by man.

                        Day 13

                          At Sea

                          The landscape is magnificent, all contrast and shade, rocky tundra, high mountains, icebergs brought in on cold currents from Canada: you are in Baffin Land, a unique and authentic experience. This part of the world is an undiscovered country, so take the time to look around you and explore its hidden treasures: arctic guillemots, elegant belugas, humpback whales and walruses, an extraordinary animal kingdom. Today Le Boreal crosses the mythical Davis Strait which links Baffin Land to Greenland.

                          Day 14

                            Kangerlussuaq, Greenland
