Tahiti Easter Island and Santiago aboard L'Austral - a luxury journey

Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

Tahiti, Pitcairn, Easter Island & Santiago


We invite you to enjoy an unforgettable experience discovering atypical destinations in the heart of the Pacific. From Papeete to Hanga Roa, you will sail aboard L’Austral on an exceptional 19-night cruise. Far from the major maritime routes, the Gambier Islands are one of Polynesia’s most unspoiled destinations. Encircled by a large ring of coral, each multicoloured lagoon is more beautiful than the last and will offer a breathtaking show.

L’Austral will also make a stop in the small village of Rikitea, where Saint Michael’s Cathedral stands proudly, built entirely of coral and wood. Clear waters, abundant flora and endemic fauna…you will sail to the Pitcairn Islands, an unspoiled subtropical environment whose capital, Adamstown, resembles a charming small village.

Some 3,700 km away from the South American continent, you will reach the intriguing Easter Island. Discover its famous wooden tablets called ‘Rongorongo’ and the Moai, or ‘walking statues’, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll then set sail for a relaxing week at sea on your way to Valparaiso where you will transfer to Santiago, the capital of Chile, for two nights.

This rare voyage takes you to the truly remote, unexpected and completely spectacular.
