Polynesia & Easter Island – with National Geographic
Enjoy an unforgettable experience with our team of naturalists, discovering atypical destinations in the heart of the Pacific. From Papeete to Hanga Roa, you will sail aboard Le Boréal for an exceptional 14-day expedition cruise.
The first stop on this trip: Rangiroa, in the Tuamotus. This gigantic atoll with breathtaking underwater scenery is most known for the cultivation of its famous black pearls.
Far from the major maritime routes, the Gambier Islands are one of Polynesia’s most unspoiled destinations. Encircled by a large ring of coral, its multicoloured lagoons are each more beautiful than the next and will offer you a breathtaking show.
Le Boréal will make a stop in the small village of Rikitea, where Saint Michael’s Cathedral stands proudly, built entirely of coral and wood.
Clear waters, abundant flora and endemic fauna… you will sail to the Pitcairn Islands, an unspoiled subtropical environment whose capital, Adamstown, resembles a charming small village.
Some 3,700 km away from the South American continent, you will reach the intriguing Easter Island. You will discover its famous wooden tablets called “Rongorongo” and the Moai, or “walking statues”, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
