Overview

If heaven were a place on Earth, Polynesia would probably be it. This part of the world has always fascinated and moved, captivated and seduced anyone who has ever stopped here. And with good reason: here, nature has the power to enchant. It emerges with the jagged cliffs of Moorea, it breathes in the dense forests that are home to flamboyant wildlife, and it bewitches with the surreal colour of the lagoons surrounding the islands and islets. Over the course of an unforgettable 15-day cruise, take your time and soak in the gentleness of Polynesia aboard Le Boréal

The Windward Islands, the Tuamotus, the Marquesas... the mere mention of these archipelagos is enough to set you off on your journey and have you imagining the heavenly scenery that will soon appear before you. Polynesia is to be experienced and explored to discover lush nature in its raw state. Naturalists will accompany you on hikes on the islands of Fatu Hiva and Nuku Hiva, where flowers in stunning colours abound and the air is filled with the song of local birds. On the Polynesian beaches, another spectacle awaits. It can be discovered by snorkelling or scuba diving in the crystal-clear waters of the lagoons or simply from the fine sand of these wild expanses. In Koku'u, on the island of Tahuata, the beach is a dream come true.

The serenity that emanates from Polynesia is intrinsically tied to its unique culture. On your trip, discover the delicate island arts and crafts, as illustrated by the tifaifai, the traditional paintings or the musical instruments. On Rangiroa or Fakarava, the expertise associated with pearl cultivation is revealed during a visit to a pearl farm. In the Marquesas, travel back in time via the Upeke archaeological sites on Hiva Oa or via the 'petroglyphs' or ancient rock art on Fatu Hiva, depicting people, gods, animals, and more. Discover the richness of the Polynesian civilisation by exploring its myriad facets.
