From Lisbon to Honfleur, PONANT invites you aboard Le Boréal for an 9-day cruise, that will take you along the French, Spanish and Portuguese Atlantic coastlines.
From the port of Leixões, you will visit Porto. The capital of Portugal’s northern region, this “city of granite” is renowned for its wine but also for its remarkable historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Your journey will continue to Galicia and the city of Vigo, the biggest fishing port in Spain. Not far from here, Santiago de Compostela awaits you. This unmissable pilgrimage destination is home to a number of monuments from the Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque periods, testimony to its illustrious past.
Le Boréal will then head for the capital of the Spanish Basque Country, Bilbao. Between daring architecture and the continuation of its ancestral traditions, you will be able to witness the city’s unique energy.
You will conclude your exploration of Basque Country on the French side with a stay in the city of Saint-Jean-de-Luz.
During your stop in Saint-Malo, a town famous for the legendary Route du Rhum yacht race, lose yourself in the diversity of its heritage, stroll along its rampart walks, and fall under the charm of the city of privateers.
You will then reach the pretty Norman town of Honfleur, your port of disembarkation.
