Heading for 90 degrees North! The North Pole has been a source of inspiration, fascination, and attraction since the dawn of time. This impossible and mythical ‘elsewhere’ begs to be admired.

What if Le Commandant Charcot achieved this absolute pinnacle adventure, by enabling you, perhaps, to tread on this virtually unattainable point?

Following in the footsteps of the explorers who once tried to approach these elusive parts, where the infinite ice floes unfold and 700 kilometres (435 miles) from any land, you are part of the chosen few to attempt the odyssey.

You will sail at the edges of the Earth, where the landscapes change constantly depending on the ice and the plays of light. Nature reigns supreme here, sheltering abundant wildlife: polar bears, seals or even whales will be your hosts. Your discovery of this silent world, frozen by the cold, will continue as you attempt to reach the Grail of all polar explorers: the North Pole!

Swept by the winds and the currents, the ice floe is constantly drifting and the master of your ship will have to manoeuvre carefully and with great humility in an attempt to reach the northernmost point of our planet.

On your return towards splendid Spitsbergen, you will enjoy a few days discovering the most beautiful fjords and glaciers of this island possessing surprising beauty. The icy landscapes of the Nordvest-Spitsbergen National Park, former home to whalers, welcome the emblematic fauna of the Far North: walruses, Arctic foxes and the famous polar bears.

Find out more about the world of Le Commandant Charcot here!

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. Our navigation, mostly in the fjords, will be determined by the type of ice we come across; as the coastal ice must be preserved, we will take this into account from day to day in our itineraries. The sailing programme, outings, activities and observation of fauna cannot be guaranteed and are subject to weather and ice conditions. The experiences are unique and vary from day to day and for each departure. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while respecting safety instructions and regulations imposed by the AECO.
