In the Wake of Pioneers

PONANT invites you to follow the steps of trappers and gold miners in Alaska, during a 15-day expedition voyage aboard L’Austral.  

From Nome to Vancouver, discover a remote territory still unknown and wild, landscape from wide spaces to gigantic glaciers, steep mountains, infinite tundra and glittering lacs.  

During your trip, discover the unique wildlife at some of the sites that have marked the history of Alaska.

Your ship will first sail along the Bering Strait, before heading south to reach the lush lands of Dutch Harbor in the Aleutian Islands. During your Zodiac® outing in Geographic Harbor, you could get the chance to observe a few grizzlies on the prowl, roaming around the stunning landscapes of Katmai National Park.

Further east, succumb to the charms of the forests and beaches in Hoggatt Bay, where you’ll find a concentration of the beauty Alaska has to offer. 

Then, set off to meet the whales and other marine mammals in Alert Bay, in British Columbia, before making your way to Vancouver, your disembarkation port.
