Le Laperouse, Macquarie & NZ Subantarctic Is ex Dunedin Return
16 Night Cruise sailing from Dunedin roundtrip aboard Le Laperouse.
On this cruise aboard Le Lapérouse, PONANT invites you to discover the primitive beauty of the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand. Set sail on a 17-day expedition cruise and let yourself be dazzled by an exceptional itinerary, home to bountiful wildlife that is not found elsewhere.
Often described as the “Galapagos of the Southern Ocean”, the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand are among the best preserved environments on the planet. Isolated and wild, they are one those end-of-world places that have very few visitors and really do provide a total change of scenery.
After sailing in spectacular fiords, Le Lapérouse will head for the five groups of the Subantarctic Islands of New Zealand as well as for Australia's Macquarie Island. Home to fauna of an incredible diversity, including some endemic species, the islands are collectively designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Lush green meadows, steep cliffs, mountains and black-sand beaches: here you will find many dazzling landscapes frequented by an incalculable number of penguins, sea lions, fur seals, elephant seals, albatrosses and giant petrels. Wildlife reigns supreme here, much to the delight of photographers and nature lovers. A powerful experience amidst surprising nature.
