Experience the incredible saga of the North Pole conquest; on board LE COMMANDANT-CHARCOT, the world’s only luxury icebreaker,that reaches the geographic North Pole at 90° North.
This is the first deep polar expedition cruise ship built under PONANT to be equipped with a hybrid liquefied natural gas (currently the cleanest energy available) propulsion and a bank of high capacity batteries.
Where does Le Commandant Charcot sail? The geographic North Pole is the northern point of the Earth’s axis of rotation. The North Pole is found in the Arctic Ocean, on constantly shifting pieces of sea ice. The North Pole is not part of any nation. Unlike Antarctica, there’s no land at the North Pole. Instead it’s all ice that’s floating on top of the Arctic Ocean.
An unforgettable adventure of the lifetime. ONLY ONCE!
