The first destination on this Arctic cruise is the North-West coast of Greenland which will welcome you with its majestic icebergs, colorful villages encircled by mountains and its basalt formations. This is the ideal opportunity for meeting the local population and learning about Greenland Inuit culture. The North of Greenland will then reveal its remote villages of peat houses where the last bear hunters and narwhal fishers live in the middle of the Arctic tundra according to their ancestral traditions. You will also see the remains of ancient Inuit civilizations and will discover Savissivik, the largest “iceberg graveyard” in Greenland. The next destination on your polar adventure will be the Nunavut in Canada, with its immense cliffs, bird colonies and fjords.

Day 1 Kangerlussuaq, Greenland

Embark this evening and settle into your luxurious accommodations in preparation for your upcoming polar cruise. A group charter flight from Paris and arrival transfers are included in your cruise fare.

Day 2-3 Ilulissat / Disko Bay

At the heart of Disko Bay - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Ilulissat Icefjord provides an extraordinary spectacle of almost surreal beauty. The sculptural icebergs continue their on timeless journey, shimmering with their eternal light. Vast pieces of ice break off from the bergs and rejoin the inexorable movement of the sea. Close by lies the town of Ilulissat, the region’s principal destination. Encircled by icebergs, it has retained a unique mix of traditional Arctic life, with multicolored wooden houses, huskies and the leather tanners who still work today using the ancient methods of their ancestors.

Day 9 Pond Inlet, Nunavut Canada

Placed like a custodian on the northern edge of Baffin Island, Pond Inlet appears to guard over the entrance to the legendary North West Passage. Formerly called Tununiq by the Inuit, this region was long ago inhabited by their ancestors, the Thule, who left behind numerous archaeological artifacts, little vestiges of the past. No matter where you look, your eyes will alight upon a unique landscape of snow-capped mountain ranges, each more beautiful than the last, standing opposite ice-blue glaciers whose vertiginous flows descend into the ocean. In the summertime, when the sun doesn’t set below the horizon, the light is truly magical, a palette of opaline blues, dusky pinks and pure white. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the bird colonies of Bylot Island; L'Austral route will sail you close to this uninhabited "Garden of Eden" so that you may wonder at its natural marvels.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
