Travelling to Antarctica, Falkland and South Georgia Islands is an exhilarating experience and an expedition at first. The raw beauty and untouched wilderness
offer an unusual chance to experience a place where there is little evidence of human presence. Inevitably, there are some consequences that come with such
remoteness: please remember that you are far from modern hospitals with full medical facilities and evacuation can take several days thus necessary medical
help may not be immediately available.

• Given the inaccessibility of the White Continent, this is an obligation to choose your insurance company carefully. Evacuation costs from the Antarctic Peninsula
are up to more than 130 000 US$ plus medical costs. Therefore, please be particularly prudent when choosing an insurance company, especially if you
are insured by your credit card. In addition, it is mandatory to return the medical questionnaire, provided at time of booking, between 90 and 45 days prior departure
departure. This questionnaire is very important in order to respect mandatory safety rules in polar zones. Any false information on this questionnaire may lead
to a refusal of your embarkation at the port of departure, without any possible recourse.

• These voyages include activities such as Zodiac® landings (sometimes wet landings), Zodiac® outings, moderate walks to more active hikes. All this
accompanied by your expedition team of naturalist guides. Considering the nature of the programs, a reasonable level of mobility is required to enjoy these

• Due to the exceptional nature of this itinerary, the calls/sites listed are only a guide. The final route will be confirmed by the ship’s Captain with priority being
given to passenger safety. Pack ice may also force the Captain to change course at the last minute. His decision will be based on advice from expert pilots
who are present on board during our cruise in South Georgia and Antarctica. Zodiac® landings or outings accompanied by your expedition team offer plenty
of opportunities to discover and experience what Antarctica and/or South Georgia have to offer at close range. These will of course depend on the weather
conditions, the ice, the wind and the sea state.

• A PONANT polar water-resistant parka is offered on board for all departures with the logo “parka gilf”. We also recommend you follow the clothing
instructions and advice you will find in your travel documents.

• Argentina: ENT RY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS: Australian, Canadian, and U.S. citizens entering/exiting Argentina must have a valid passport and pay a
