Set sail aboard Le Soléal on a journey to the past. Our travel specialists have searched every corner of the world to create unique and incomparable itineraries, and 2015 destinations are no exception. We invite you to come along for a journey to a place you never thought of contemplating, exposing the most virginal and hidden confines of the world. From Manado in Indonesia to Guadalcanal in the Salomon Islands you will witness nature in its most pure and wild state, inhabited by tribes whose everyday lives are worlds apart from modern civilization.


  • The Indonesian archipelago Raja Ampat is also referred to as The 4 Kings, alluring to its majestic mountains surrounded by a regal mixture of turquoise and blue waters. Raja Ampat is quite a sight and Le Soléal will take you closer than ever to this piece of heaven on earth.
  • Mapia Atoll, Samarai and Tufi will uncover its impressive flora and fauna, especially the one that lies under its turquoise waters. Located in the “Coral Triangle” these places have some of the richest biodiversity of coral reefs and marine species in the world.
  • In the Kopar Village of the Sepik River you will experience the contrasting lifestyle of its inhabitant. Costumes inspired by the birds of paradise and spiritual rites will truly take you on a journey to the past, far away from modernity.
  • Witness the magnificent colours of the pristine coral reefs and discover the marine biodiversity of Nggela while snorkelling alongside a shipwreck.
