Sailing on a luxury mega-yacht you will experience, up close, the Arctic at its most exuberant: ice-choked fjords, soaring icebergs, tundra flowers in bloom, and wildlife in its natural habitat: Beluga whales, walruses, Arctic fox—and the kings of the Arctic, Polar bears, hunting in the midnight sun.
This will be the perfect time of year to visit the Arctic, when Polar bears and walruses will be on the ice edge, birds will be returning to breed and the Arctic will be teeming with wildlife on shore and in the sea and sky. You will experience some of Nature’s most wondrous wildlife encounters. And history awaits you in every facet of your journey: you will follow in the footsteps of men who struggled to survive in these icy wastes: adventurers, explorers, whalers, colourful characters whose lives have left their mark on this vast continent, still visible today. If ever you have thought of seeing the Arctic for yourself, rather than second-hand on television, now is the time.
We shall explore the Planet’s most beautiful and unspoilt region in a style that is beyond the ordinary, experiencing luxurious comfort, refinement, fine wine and French cuisine aboard the gracious Le Boréal luxury expedition yacht, designed and reinforced to handle the Polar ice, especially quiet so as not to disturb the wildlife, and refitted at a cost of millions of pounds. Her diminutive size allows her to go where other ships cannot pass, and lets her passengers go ashore at exceptional places. Using Zodiac inflatables, headed by experienced and passionate Arctic expedition guides, we shall be escorted as close as possible to Nature at its most thrilling and awe-inspiring.
