All This Included

On this cruise, PONANT invites you to discover New Zealand, a unique destination with a multitude of natural treasures.  

Set sail aboard Le Lapérouse for a 10-day cruise from Dunedin to Auckland.  

In New Zealand’s south-west, on the South Island, Le Lapérouse will cruise to the heart of a park with landscapes shaped by successive glaciations. You will discover Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound and the well-known Milford Sound − three fiords bordered by majestic cliffs.

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.

From Tauranga, you will be able to explore many treasures: 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.
