Overview

On this itinerary, Ponant invites you to discover the must-see jewels of the Seychelles. On Mahé, you will board Le Champlain for a 9-day expedition cruise to the heart of this archipelago's Inner Islands for a glimpse of paradise. The first stop on your cruise: Sainte Anne Marine National Park, whose coral reefs are home to stunning species, guaranteeing unforgettable snorkelling.

Then you will sail to Remire Island, an Eden lost in the Indian Ocean. Discover its abundant fauna as you explore both on land and under water. Fall in love with this idyllic port of call as you walk...read more around the island and snorkel in its waters. 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.

You will then discover Aride, an unspoiled delight of the Indian Ocean, home to thousands of birds including some endemic species. Le Champlain will then sail for the island of La Digue, a veritable post card of the Seychelles: palm trees, granite rocks, white sand and crystal-clear waters. In Praslin, don't miss the chance to visit the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve.

There you will find sea coconuts, gigantic endemic fruits with a very evocative shape, nicknamed the "love nut". Palm trees, granite rock, white sand and crystal-clear water await you on Grande Sœur. The beaches on this island are each more beautiful than the next, guaranteeing moments of relaxation that will live up to your fantasies of the Seychelles. Finally, your ship will head for Mahé, your disembarkation port. The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
