Through this itinerary, PONANT invites you to discover the unmissable gems of the Seychelles. From Mahé, you will embark on Le Bougainville for a 9-day expedition cruise in the heart of the Inner Islands of this paradise-like archipelago.

First stop on your journey: the Sainte-Anne Island Marine Park, whose coral reefs are home to very beautiful species, pledges for unforgettable snorkeling hikes.

On the island of Curieuse, famous for its reddish-toned land and for the Aldabra land turtles that call it home, you will have the chance to hike in the heart of the mangroves. You will then discover Aride, a wild wonder of the Indian Ocean home to thousands of birds, including some endemic species.

In Praslin, be sure to visit the Vallée de Mai nature reserve. You will be able to see cocos de mer, gigantic endemic fruits with a more than evocative shape, nicknamed "coconut buttocks".

Palm trees, granite rocks, white sand and crystal clear waters: this is the program that also awaits you at Grande Sœur and La Digue. The beaches of these two islands compete in beauty and guarantee you moments of relaxation that perfectly illustrate the Seychellois imagination.

Encounters with wildlife are possible experiences and cannot be guaranteed.

Taking into account the particularly evolving international health context, this itinerary as well as the land programs may need to evolve depending on the port authorizations and government regulations in force at the time of your trip.
