Ponant invites you on a cultural cruise leaving from Scotland, featuring ports of call in Ireland, in the south of England, and on the Breton coastlines and the Bordeaux region in France. This timeless 9-day interlude will take you into the heart of lush green countryside, authentic ports, historic cities and famous vineyards.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, visit the Navan Fort archaeological site near Warrenpoint, fill up on chlorophyll in the Lost Gardens of Heligan, leaving from Fowey, or discover the Médoc region’s famous “Route des Châteaux” in Pauillac. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

From Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, boasting a convivial atmosphere and authentic charm, you will sail to Warrenpoint, a seaside resort nestling in an exceptional natural environment. Then you will call in Portrush, 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. 

You will make a stop in Cobh. This charming and romantic town, steeped in history and legend, will reveal itself through its maze of cobbled streets with, in the background, its 17th-century fortress and its majestic forest.

Then, mythical Cornwall will reveal itself. In Fowey, you will marvel at Mother Nature’s masterpieces. There, you will discover a spellbinding environment of majestic cliffs and vast natural spaces, conducive to escape and tranquillity.

You will cross the English Channel and reach the Breton coastlines with a first port of call in Roscoff. You will be enchanted by this port full of character, which is easily recognisable through its granite facades, testimony to a rich architectural heritage dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. You will then head for the Quiberon peninsula. Here, you will discover a dreamy setting between two seas with breathtaking scenery: on one side, the Atlantic Ocean and its wild coastline; on the other, Quiberon Bay and its sandy beaches. 

Le Bellot will sail along the Atlantic front to the Gironde estuary. During your port of call in Pauillac, among other things, you will have the opportunity to enjoy several visits and wine tastings at some very beautiful wine estates in the Saint-Estèphe, Margaux and Pauillac appellations.

Your cruise will end in Bordeaux, considered the wine capital of the world.
