Luxury Tasmania Circumnavigation Cruise

10 Day Ponant Cruise departing 30 October 2021

From AU$7,590*
per person, twin share

Like Le Boréal and L’Austral, the two sister ships that preceded it, Le Soléal further reaffirms PONANT's signature approach: to take passengers to the farthest reaches of the planet onboard five-star ships offering top-of-the-range services. An elegant appearance and refined interior design combine with cutting-edge technology to offer a new type of cruising: adventure in a luxury setting.

Discover the wonders that await tucked away at the bottom of Australia on this exciting circumnavigation of Tasmania, Australia's island state. Filled with varied landscapes, culinary delights and unrivalled nature, this is the voyage for those wanting a complete Tasmanian experience.

Starting and finishing in the cosmopolitan but charming city of Hobart, this voyage will make its first stop in Port Davey, arguably one of the highlights of the trip - only accessible by foot, boat or light aircraft, be one of the few to take in its unspoilt scenery, rugged peaks, wild rivers, unique flora and fauna, and a long and rugged coastline. Continue to King Island, the outcrop known for its gastronomic delicacies, crystal-clear waters and unique flora and fauna. After savouring the lavish flavours of the Tamar Valley's award-winning wines, explore the Ile des Phoques (Seal Island) by Zodiac®, home to breeding colonies of seabirds and hordes of Australian fur seals. Learn about Tasmania's tumultuous colonial history at the Port Arthur Historic Site and marvel at the majestic painted cliffs, historic ruins and natural wildlife sanctuary of Maria Island. You will enjoy a refreshing swim in the pristine waters of Tasman Peninsula while taking in the striking dolerite spires that rise from the Tasman Sea, culminating in capes Hauy, Pillar, and Raoul. Then you will head back to Hobart, your port of disembarkation.
