Sailing between two continents, PONANT offers you an itinerary rich in contrasts and cultural blending, to discover UNESCO World Heritage treasures. Aboard L’Austral, you will travel from Brazil to Senegal in 16 days, during an exceptional cruise combining cultural discoveries and remarkable natural sites. 

You will come aboard at Rio de Janeiro, the colourful and contrasted “cidade maravilhosa”, with its incomparable bay dominated by the Corcovado. Your ship will then call at Paraty, an historic colonial city on the Gold Route, whose well-preserved architectural treasures have earned it UNESCO World Heritage status. 

You will then set sail for Salvador de Bahia. Its historic centre, cidade alta, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The paved little streets with polychrome façades of the Pelourinho and the surrounding districts have retained the urban plan of the 17th century as well as many Renaissance churches and monuments.

L’Austral will then cross the Atlantic as far as the Bijagos Islands for 3 days of expedition. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, these sparsely inhabited islands are only accessible to a few privileged travellers. There you will discover a variety of landscapes, ranging from tropical rainforest to savanna and mangroves, exceptional flora and fauna (including sea turtles) and will meet villagers with a unique culture.

This fantastic trip will conclude in Dakar, the bustling capital of Senegal.
