The Great Adventure

PONANT invites you to follow in the footsteps of the great explorer during a crossing between South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.  

Leaving from Montevideo, you will set sail aboard Le Lyrial for a 16-day expedition cruise into the heart of the White Continent.   

You will begin this exceptional voyage by discovering the coastlines of South Georgia, an island deeply marked by its whaling activity of the past. In Fortuna Bay, set off to meet the immense colony of king penguins, the real rulers of the roost. Your stop at Grytviken will enable you to relive the adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the famous British explorer who lies here, before setting sail for the Antarctic Peninsula

After two days at sea, don’t miss out on the shore visit to Deception Island, which long served as a refuge for sailors during heavy storms. You will come across elephant seals and fur seals, sharing the spotlight with chinstrap penguins. You’ll then go to Port Lockroy where you’ll be surprised to find a small museum and the most southern post office in the world. 

You will disembark in Ushuaia, the Argentinean capital of Tierra del Fuego, whose landscapes will take your breath away.
