Day 1: Fly to Tahiti.
Days 2-3 Tahiti: On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel for two days to relax and unwind following your journey. The natural scenery of towering mountains, giant waterfalls and deep valleys is simply splendid, while the palm-fringed sandy beaches are positively perfect.
Day 4 Tahiti/Cruise: Morning at leisure before you are transferred to the port to board ms Paul Gauguin.
Day 5 Huahine, Society Islands: Known as the ‘Garden Island’ for its beautiful rainforests, dramatic terrain and enchanting lagoon. Discover something new to explore at every turn, from sacred sites and archeological landmarks that are among the best preserved in French Polynesia to the colourful sea life that can be experienced on a scuba or snorkelling expedition.
Day 6 Taha’a, Society Islands: Enclosed in a common lagoon with Raiatea and accessible only by boat, Taha’a is a sleepy island that maintains an authentic Polynesian flavour. And speaking of flavours, it produces about 80% of French Polynesia’s world-renowned vanilla. Taha’a is also home to Motu Mahana, Paul Gauguin Cruises’ private island. Guests are welcomed with traditional music performed by Les Gauguines, a beachside barbecue, and ample opportunities for watersports, swimming and relaxation.
Days 7-8 Bora Bora, Society Islands: The dream destination of Bora Bora just begs to have its picture taken, with lush peaks, white sand beaches, and romantic lagoons. But perhaps Bora Bora’s most iconic image is that of Mount Otemanu, with its jagged, emerald-hued peaks rising high above the shoreline. With a laid-back, island vibe, it’s easy to relax in this beautiful corner of the world.
Days 9-10 Moorea, Society Islands: Moorea, often likened to James Michener’s mythical island of Bali Hai, is worth a visit just to experience its spectacular vistas. Volcanic peaks, reflected in the waters of Cook’s Bay and Opunohu Bay, rise like a shark’s jaw above palm tree-lined beaches. The underwater world is just as enchanting, with sharks, tuna, dolphins, and tropical fish.
Day 11 At sea/Tahiti: A chance to make the most of the leisure facilities on board or simply sit back with new found friends on the pool deck. There’s also the option of treating yourself to an indulgent treatment at the award-winning spa, The ship arrives at Papeete, Tahiti this evening.
