Exploring the Indonesian Archipelago
PONANT invites you to enjoy an
unforgettable experience with this exciting itinerary into the heart of Indonesia’s most beautiful islands.
Bali, set sail aboard Le Lapérouse on a 15-day expedition cruise to Cairns.
From the ‘Island of Gods’, head to mysterious
Komodo, a small wild island whose national park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is home among other things to the famous Komodo dragons, gigantic monitor lizards that can grow more than 3 metres long, that you will be able to see in their natural environment.
Then follow in the footsteps of the traders who used to take the Spice Route in the past, to
the Maluku Islands. These small tropical islands that get very few visitors offer fine possibilities for swimming and have strong historic interest, particularly Banda Neira, with its Dutch colonial buildings.
Further east, you will visit villages of thatched houses in the
Asmat region, one of the most isolated in the world, with deeply-rooted traditions and ancestor worship that is still very much alive.
Le Lapérouse will finally reach Australia via the legendary Cape York, to finish on a high note exploring Lizard Island, an island with exceptional marine life, from multicoloured coral to giant clams.
Featuring innovative and environmentally-friendly equipment, elegantly designed cabins, spacious suites with large windows, and lounge areas that open onto the outside, this new limited-capacity yacht boasting just 92 cabins and suites will offer you a truly unique cruising experience.
As the first ship in a new series that remains true to the Ponant spirit, Le Lapérouse will embody the unique atmosphere that is the cruise line's hallmark: a subtle blend of refinement, intimacy and comfort.
Aboard this ship that flies the French flag, you will experience the incomparable pleasure of an intimate cruise, with the possibility of exploring an ever-increasing range of destinations in an ethnic-chic ambiance with luxury service.
Experience a luxurious setting where the accent is on authenticity and passion for travel.
