From Antarctica to Africa

PONANT invites you to sail from Tierra del Fuego to the Cape of Good Hope during a 22-day expedition cruise from one continent to the other.

You will begin your voyage in Ushuaia, the mythical embarkation port located at the extreme south of the Andes cordillera.

First, you will chart a course for the Falkland Islands, whose wild beauty and lush moors are sure to captivate you.

Your ship will then make its way to the coast of South Georgia, in the wake of the British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. The glaciers and protected fauna make this place a paradise for anyone with a passion for wild lands. It is not uncommon to be greeted by a colony of several thousand king penguins; this is the only place in the world where you can enjoy such a unique privilege.

Continue your trip with another highlight as you visit the world's most remote inhabited archipelago: Tristan da Cunha. Hidden in the middle of the Atlantic, it is made up of several volcanic islands, most of which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Finally, you'll head for Cape Town, your disembarkation port, dominated by the famous silhouette of Table Mountain.

We are privileged guests in these extreme lands where we are at the mercy of weather and ice conditions. Landings on certain sites and the observation of certain wildlife cannot be guaranteed. They vary from day to day, making each PONANT cruise a unique experience. The Captain and the Expedition Leader will make every effort to ensure that your experience is as rich as possible, while complying with the safety rules and instructions imposed by the IAATO.
