Embark with PONANT on an expedition cruise to discover the most beautiful islands of the Seychelles. This 13-day itinerary aboard Le Bougainville will be an opportunity to discover little-known places of breathtaking natural beauty and an original fauna and flora.
Leaving from Victoria, the archipelago’s capital, fall under the spell of the idyllic landscapes, with their exceptional flora and fauna.
On Curieuse Island, reputed for its red earth and for the Aldabra giant tortoises that have taken up residence there, take an excursion to the heart of the mangrove.
Then, you will discover the island of Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species.
In Praslin, do not miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the “love nut”.
During your cruise, you will have many opportunities to dive or snorkel, notably in Poivre as well as on the sublime Saint-François atoll and the uninhabited and unspoilt Bijoutier Island.
Another highlight of your trip will be the port of call at Cosmoledo. This magnificent atoll owes its nickname, the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, to the beauty of its unique underwater world. Diving in this paradise lagoon becomes an extraordinary experience.
You will call at Astove Atoll. Renowned for the beauty and diversity of its underwater world, it is home to a large population of tortoises and sea turtles. You will undoubtedly have the opportunity to observe some in their natural environment.
Before you return to Mahé, Le Bougainville will chart a course for the coral island of Rémire and the sublime beaches of La Digue, some of the most renowned of the Seychelles.
The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
