Spend a magical Christmas with PONANT aboard Le Boréal, between South America and the Antarctic Peninsula. This 16-day polar expedition cruise will take you to discover the most beautiful sites of these southern lands.
Fly from Buenos Aires to the fascinating city of Ushuaia, which the Argentinians call El fin del mundo (the end of the world). Step aboard the Le Boreal and chart a course for the Falkland Islands, whose wild beauty and lush moors are sure to captivate you. Sail on to South Georgia, to see its impressive glaciers and its black-sand beaches where large colonies of king penguins have taken up residence.
You will then sail to the White Continent, realm of the unexpected. Weather and ice conditions permitting, this extreme environment where nature reigns supreme will reveal to you its most beautiful secrets through numerous discoveries. Gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins, humpback whales, seals and seabirds: these are some of the encounters you will most likely have the chance to experience in the Antarctic Peninsula, creating indelible memories. Each day, whether on land, aboard your ship or during a Zodiac outing, you will be surrounded by a grandiose decor ranging from icebergs to ice floe and ancient glaciers.
The cruise concludes in Ushuaia with a return flight to Buenos Aires.
