Description

Discover idyllic islands and atolls, following a brand-new itinerary in the Indian Ocean. From the Seychelles to Sri Lanka via the Maldives, set sail for an 11-day cruise aboard Le Lapérouse.

Your route will start from Victoria on the island of Mahé. Before you board, take the time to visit the botanical gardens of the Seychelles’ capital and to stroll among the colourful stalls of its market.
You will then head to La Digue, a granite island teeming with picture postcard beaches, such as Anse Source d’Argent.

Le Lapérouse will then drop anchor in the Maldives, a scattering of islands lying right in the heart of the Indian Ocean. Here the underwater wildlife offers a dazzling sight. A veritable paradise for divers and snorkelers, the Maldives atolls are home to a huge number of fascinating species such as manta rays, tortoises, sharks and many coral fishes.

You will leave the white sandy beaches behind to visit the old town of Galle in Sri Lanka. Founded by the Portuguese in the 16th Century, the town is surrounded by fortifications that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
