France is beautiful from the sea...

PONANT invites you to take to the sea, without a care in the world, to enjoy a break from reality in a privileged setting, and cast a fresh eye over the infinite riches of the French coastline. As your journey unfolds and depending on the elements, you will enjoy magnificent moments as unique as they are unexpected.

During this 7-night cruise aboard L’Austral* discover or rediscover the natural and cultural heritage of the Mediterranean coastline, from Marseille, in a tribute to the city that is home to our company. 

It all starts at the mouth of the Rhone in Camargue country, a magical and evocative word: this region, where man lives in harmony with a vast and unspoiled nature, is forged by an agriculture adapted to the conditions, as seen by the rice fields and salt flats. The Camargue regional natural park is home to flora and fauna that are unique in Europe.

You will discover the magnificent Calanques National Park, whose impressive limestone cliffs plunge into the Mediterranean. Under the kind eyes of the Bec de l'Aigle, you will enjoy its magnificent natural and cultural heritage.

The Cap Taillat, planted with maritime pines and cork oaks, will reveal a natural jewel, bathed in the crystal-clear waters of the French Riviera. You will then approach the Ile d’Or, which inspired the setting of the adventures of Tintin in The Black Island. From the top of her unusual and mysterious tower, the island looks out over the Esterel massif, recognisable for its abrupt red rocks.

You will then set sail for Calvi in the heart of the Balagne region. Between steep peaks and sublime beaches with turquoise waters, you will experience a wild and authentic Corsica.

During this trip, you may be lucky enough to see certain species of cetaceans, such as bottlenose dolphins, rorquals and pilot whales, common off the Mediterranean coastline.

The conditions will be ideal for sporting and nautical activities far from the crowds allowing you to enjoy these moments in peace and quiet. You will have access to unspoiled areas that facilitate the observation of nature. 

This itinerary is given as an indication only. Based on tide times and weather conditions, the Captain and the Expedition Leader may need to change the order of certain ports of call to ensure guests have the best possible experience.

Encounters with wildlife are possible but cannot be guaranteed.
