On this cruise, PONANT invites you to discover New Zealand, a unique destination with a multitude of natural treasures.
Set sail aboard LeBellot for a 10-day cruise from Dunedin to Auckland.
You will first discover Dunedin. The Edinburgh of New Zealand is a lively student city, with a rich Scottish Heritage.
The Banks Peninsula will reveal wonderful landscapes of lush hills and rugged coasts during your calls in the bays of Lyttleton and Akaroa, two ancient flooded volcano craters.
In Picton, you will discover the Marlborough region, famous for its vineyards and its submerged valleys.
You will also sail to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. This ancient site of the Maori people, as demonstrated by the Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, perfectly combines local traditions and bustling nightlife.
Le Bellot will then call at White Island, a volcanic island with an unreal atmosphere, between lunar landscapes and steam emanating from the numerous fumaroles.
Before disembarking in Auckland, you will be able to explore the many treasures of Tauranga: volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, rivers and gorges, and lakes that range in colour from deep blue to orange-tinged.
Surrounded by the blue waters of the Pacific, the twin islands of New Zealand are the promise of an incredible mosaic of contrasting panoramas.
