Circumnavigation of New Zealand Aboard Le Lapérouse

Circumnavigation of New Zealand Aboard Le Lapérouse



The breadth of New Zealand’s natural wonders is explored on this extraordinary 10-night program. Dubbed the “City of Sails,” spend three nights in picturesque Auckland. Aboard the newly-launched Le Lapérouse, witness the breathtaking beauty of the country. Spend two days cruising through the UNESCO World-Heritage-designated Fiordland National Park, composed of sheer cliffs, lush forests, deep fjords, untamed gorges and glacier-grooved landscapes—including Milford Sound, Rudyard Kipling’s “Eighth Wonder of the World.” Watch for an array of wildlife in a diverse panorama of ecosystems—albatross, sea lions, kiwi, penguins and rare dolphin and whale species.
