Overview

Ponant invites you aboard Le Champlain for a 8-day cruise to discover the British and Irish treasures along the coastlines of the Channel and the Celtic and Irish seas. From London, the cosmopolitan capital of the United Kingdom boasting a rich historical heritage and an exceptional avant-garde art scene, Le Champlain will set a course eastward through the waters of the mythical Channel to reach the Isle of Portland. Succumb to the charms of this limestone-rich island covered in lush vegetation. Here, serenityand a gentle way of life reign.

You will then sail along the Jurassic Coast....read more Listed as World Heritage by UNESCO due to the importance of its geology, this coastal region will offer you an exceptional panorama composed of spectacular rock formations, lush hills, small, wild inlets and gorgeous sand or pebble beaches.

Then, you will make your way to Dartmouth, a charming town tucked away in the heart of the stunning decor formed by the mouth of the Dart. You will discover its old pastel-coloured fishermen's houses and some half-timbered buildings. Your ship will then sail towards the Isles of Scilly, a strange little archipelago whose landscapes seem to have come straight out of Enid Blyton's famous story, The Rockingdown Mystery.

Here, long sandy beaches lie alongside green fields, while ruins of old castles stand proud on hilltops. Next, Le Champlain will sail towards Dublin, the Irish capital brimming with convivial atmosphere and authentic charm. Before you disembark in Glasgow, your ship will call at Belfast, where you can visit the Giant's Causeway. This massive geological formation is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and features over 40,000 basalt columns.
