Set sail to discover the natural wonders of Tasmania. PONANT invites you on a 10-day expedition cruise aboard Le Lapérouse to explore the varied landscapes, culinary delights and unrivalled natural environments of Australia’s island state. 

With the charming cosmopolitan city of Hobart as your point of departure and arrival, you will sail to the Tasmanian wilderness, a remote and protected area listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, before reaching King Island, known for its gourmet delicacies, its crystal-clear waters and its ecosystem.

Continuing onto the Tamar Valley, following the Tamar Valley Wine Route and you may sample some of the region’s gourmet produce. Birders will revel in Ile des Phoques – Seal Island – as it is home to several breeding seabird species including little penguins, short-tailed shearwaters and fairy prions.

Reaching Tasmania’s Maria Island, explore the region’s history and extraordinary wildlife sanctuaries alongside your team of expedition experts.

After a stopover in Port Arthur, the Tasman Peninsula will reveal its spectacular culminating dolerite spires rising from the sea, and you will get a chance to spot the region’s varied marine life including Australian fur seals and dolphins from our fleet of zodiac.

Then you will head back to Hobart, your port of disembarkation.
