    PONANT invites you to discover the ancient Inca Empire and its stunning slumbering citadels.  

    From Valparaiso, set sail aboard the Le Boréal for a 13-day cruise along the coasts of Chile and Peru.  

    You will visit Iquique and its exceptional historic centre inherited from the Gold Rush. Not far, you will find Humberstone, a disused mining town where the buildings now house museums listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

    Arica, the ‘city of eternal spring’ where the climate is temperate and sunny year round, is very popular for its beautiful beaches and its sites brimming with history. You will be captivated by this surprising city where the Inca people once lived.

    From the port of Callao near Lima, you will be able to visit the ancient city of Cusco, discovered in 1533 by the conquistadors, as well as the famous site of Machu Picchu, the gigantic lost city, an architectural gem listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Le Boréal will stop at Salaverry, an opportunity to discover the ruins of Chan Chan, the largest adobe citadel of Pre-Colombian America and former capital of the Chimu kingdom.

    Your cruise will end in Guayaquil, after a unforgettable journey full of cultural discoveries.

    Like her sisterships, Le Boréal embodies the subtle alliance between luxury, intimacy and wellbeing which is PONANT’s signature. The elegance of her exterior and interior lines and her intimate size (only 132 staterooms and suites) make this a rare and innovative yacht on the cruise market.

    Interior Design
    Superior materials, discreet elegance and a tasteful décor reflect a nautical mood subtly revisited. Aboard, soothing neutral grey tones are enlivened by splashes of red, our signature theme linking tradition and innovation to create personal touches in the spirit of a “private yacht”.

    Valparaiso

    Embarkation 20/03/2020 from 17H00 to 18H00 . Departure 20/03/2020 at 19H00 .

    Located about 100 kilometres south of Santiago, the legendary Valparaiso is the second largest city in Chile. It is also a splendid city, full of history: two qualities justifying its nickname “gem of the Pacific” and its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site. You can stroll along the steep streets, on foot or by cable car, and explore the many admirable sites like the delicate Iglesia de la Matriz, Sotomayor square, Bellavista hill, or Sebastiana house where the author Pablo Neruda lived. At every turning, you’ll get a refreshing view of the sea.

    21 March 2020 – Coquimbo

    21 March 2020 – Coquimbo

    Arrival 21/03/2020 late morning. Departure 21/03/2020 late afternoon.

    On Chile'sᅠNorte Chico (Little North) is the port of Coquimbo where peace and harmony reign, sheltered in the inlet of the La Herradura Bay. This charming seaside town is mere minutes away from La Serena. Set off to discover this site along the Pacific Ocean and its spectacular sandy beaches. Founded in 1544, this old town has retained its beautiful colonial architecture that bears traces of Spanish and neoclassical influences. Venture deeper inland to the Elqui Valley, one of the country's largest and most spectacular. This valley was the birthplace of Gabriela Mistral, the renowned poet, and is also where Chile's famous pisco is made.

    During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board. Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation in the spa or stay in shape in the fitness centre. Depending on the season, let yourself be tempted by the swimming pool or a spot of sunbathing. This day without a port of call will also be an opportunity to enjoy the conferences or shows proposed on board, to do some shopping in the boutique or to meet the PONANT photographers in their dedicated space. As for lovers of the open sea, they will be able to visit the ship’s upper deck to admire the spectacle of the waves and perhaps be lucky enough to observe marine species. A truly enchanted interlude, combining comfort, rest and entertainment.
