Easter Island and Polynesia
PONANT invites you to enjoy an unforgettable experience discovering atypical destinations in the heart of the Pacific.
From Hanga Roa to Papeete, you will sail aboard Le Soléal for an exceptional 15-day cruise.
Some 3,700 km away from the South American continent, your cruise will start at the intriguing Easter Island. You will discover its famous wooden tablets called ‘Rongorongo’ and the Moai, or ‘walking statues’, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Clear waters, abundant flora and endemic fauna… you will sail to the Pitcairn Islands, an unspoiled subtropical environment whose capital, Adamstown, resembles a charming small village.
Far from the major maritime routes, the Gambier Islands are one of Polynesia’s most unspoiled destinations. Encircled by a large ring of coral, its multicoloured lagoons are each more beautiful than the next and will offer a breathtaking show.
The Le Soléal will also make a stop in the small village of Rikitea, where Saint Michael’s Cathedral stands proudly, built entirely of coral and wood.
Then head towards the pearls of French Polynesia: Moorea, Bora Bora with its easily recognizable volcanic shape and Motu Ceran. These islands are true postcards from paradise and will end your cruise with a flourish, before you disembark at Papeete.
