Board Le Lapérouse for a brand-new 8-day expedition cruise to explore the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island, which offers wildlife and magical landscapes in one of the world’s most unspoiled environments.

From Dunedin, along the stunning Otago Peninsula, Le Lapérouse will set sail for Akaroa, formed by an ancient, flooded volcano crater. There you will experience a unique mix of Māori, French and European cultural heritage.

Heading east, the Chatham Islands will appear to you, adding new breath-taking landscapes to your expedition, from isolated beaches to sheer ochre-coloured cliffs covered in verdant nature. The 80-million-years-old archipelago is comprised of 10 islands that boast various endemic species of birds and plant that you will be able to see, guided by your team of passionate expedition experts.

 

Le Lapérouse will then proceed to the east coast of the South Island. You will sail to the rocky peninsula of Kaikoura to admire the country’s rich biodiversity.

 

Your cruise will come to an end in Wellington, the New Zealand capital. This ancient site of the Māori people, as showcased at the Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, perfectly combines local traditions with a bustling nightlife.

The wildlife encounters described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
