On this cruise, PONANT invites you to discover New Zealand, a unique destination with a multitude of natural treasures. Set sail aboard Le Soléal for a 13-day cruise from Auckland to Dunedin. Surrounded by the blue waters of the Pacific, the twin islands of New Zealand are the promise of an incredible mosaic of contrasting panoramas.

You will first explore the many treasures of Rotorua from Tauranga: volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, rivers and gorges, and lakes that range in colour from deep blue to orange-tinged.

You will also sail to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, where will be able to learn more about the Maori people on a visit to the Te Papa Tongarewa National Museum.

In Picton, you will discover the Marlborough region, famous for its vineyards and its submerged valleys.

Your ship will then proceed to the east coast of the Southern Island. You will sail to the rocky peninsula of Kaikoura to admire New Zealand’s rich biodiversity.

Then the Banks Peninsula will reveal wonderful landscapes of lush hills and rugged coasts during your calls in the bays of Akaroa, an ancient flooded volcano crater. There you will experience a unique mix of Maori, French and European cultural heritage.

Your ship will first chart a course south-west of the South Island to discover the magnificent Fiordland National Park, which is an integral part of the Te Wahipounamu, a UNESCO World Heritage area. Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound or the better-known Milford Sound: you will discover these fjords shaped by successive glaciations, bordered by majestic cliffs.

You will then drop anchor near Ulva Island, one of the last remaining predator-free natural sanctuaries in New Zealand. Here, you will be able to observe numerous bird species and discover a remarkably well-preserved podocarp forest.

You will finally discover Dunedin, your port of disembarkation.
