Natural Wonders and Cultures of the Coral Triangle

The PONANT Expedition Team has created a 15-day expedition cruise aboard LeBellot, discovering the natural marvels of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. 

Departing from Darwin, set sail for an exceptional trip into the heart of remote regions of wild beauty. 

Follow the footsteps of the traders who used to take the Spice Route in the past, to the MalukuIslands. These small tropical islands that get very few visitors offer fine possibilities for swimming and have strong historic interest, particularly Banda Neira, shaped by Dutch and Portuguese influences.

As you voyage across Western New Guinea you will experience the spectacular Mommon Waterfall and the Cenderawasih Bay, with an unforgettable opportunity to swim with whale sharks.

Le Bellot will then set sail for Papua New Guinea, a fascinating land that is home to no fewer than 700 ethnic groups within a very rich ecosystem.

In the village of Kopar, situated at the mouth of the Sepik River, you will be welcomed with cultural performances and will witness life in a traditional village.

Next, you will arrive in the Solomon Islands and disembark in Honiara.
