The shipping company
LATITUDE BLANCHE – the polar french line
Born in 2017, Latitude Blanche is a modern French shipping company.
The company was founded by two former master mariners, Yann Le Bellec and Sophie Galvagnon.
After many years of ice navigation in all polar regions, they decided to create a new concept, fitting their passion and vision of polar exploration.
Driven by their passion, by the need to create and to enhance their competences, both of them believe in hard work, curiosity and creativity.
We imagined our dream expedition ship: strong and reliable, small and comfortable. We gave our dream a real dimension in 2017 by purchasing and renovating Polarfront and since then we have been managing our cruise line company to provide unforgettable experiences to our passengers.
Reinforced for the ice to get as close as possible to the icebergs and the pack ice in complete safety and to offer this unforgettable spectacle to a dozen passengers eager for a real polar adventure…
We want to offer remarkable voyages as well as share and sensitize people to the most remote regions of the world.
