    Society Islands (Huahine , Bora Bora )

    The Garden of Eden in a new light
    Enjoy a South Seas adventure which can only be made possible by a small expedition ship like the BREMEN. This will already be evident on Huahine, the most pristine of the Society Islands. On this island, follow the call of the rainforest, dominated by high volcanoes, as you take an excursion to explore Huahine in an off-road vehicle*. Another exploratory excursion with unimaginable views of the island* will lead to you 1,000-year-old Polynesian ceremonial sites and idyllic bays with white beaches. Alternatively, enjoy colourful underwater gardens on a snorkelling safari*. Almost no other island can conjure more images of the South Seas in your mind than Bora Bora. On a jeep safari*, the tropical vegetation, palm beaches, crystal-clear lagoon and a lake shimmering in shades of emerald green and azure blue will show you why the island is said to have been “created by the gods”. A stunning world of colours also awaits you when you snorkel in the lagoon* with iridescent coral fish and majestic rays. A dream flight over Bora Bora* will take your happiness to new heights – simply unforgettable.

    Austral Islands (Rimatara , Rurutu , Tubuai , Raivavae )

    Be the first to discover paradisiacal new lands
    The Austral Islands – pristine, pure and remote – lie far from conventional cruise routes. The BREMEN will enter uncharted territory, where the lives of the inhabitants remain almost entirely traditional. Curiosity, pioneering spirit and a sense of adventure – each of the islands ignites the passions of lovers of the South Seas in a different way. Ranging from exquisite white-sand beaches to densely overgrown volcanoes and a fertile plateau, the landscape has everything an explorer’s heart desires. Often called the bread basket of Polynesia, lychees, oranges, coffee and yams thrive here. The Zodiacs will be deployed in the water time and time again to land in places other ships can only sail by. This is how you will be able to visit the small island of Rimatara, where the crystal-clear water is ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Rurutu appears wild and mystical with cliffs descending straight down into the sea. These are punctuated by networks of caves and grottoes, which are steeped in the legends of an ogress and a giant lizard. The forest of stalagmites in the cave Ana A’eo is like a petrified fairy tale – it is a natural wonder just as fascinating as the edges of the coral reefs around the lagoon of Tubuai, one of the most beautiful in Polynesia. In 1789, the mutineers of the Bounty tried in vain to settle here. You will also meet the native inhabitants who to this day have preserved their dances to the rhythm of large drums and the traditional kava ceremony. The crowning highlight is Raivavae, a true South Seas paradise with lonely white beaches, lush vegetation and a dazzling blue lagoon. It is a miniature Bora Bora and an oversized postcard picture.

    Mangareva/Gambier Islands

    Missions and legends in the South Seas
    The central island of the Gambier Islands, Mangareva, is the cradle of Polynesian Catholicism. The well-preserved Saint-Michel cathedral, which dates back to the 19th century, attests to the efforts of French preachers to convert the population.

    Pitcairn Islands (Pitcairn , cruising off Ducie Atoll)

    The legendary history of the Bounty is alive on Pitcairn, the hideaway of the mutineers in 1790. Most of the inhabitants are descendants of the crew. After dreamlike views of the uninhabited Ducie Atoll, the most southern atoll in the world, the BREMEN will set sail for a magical Pacific legend: the famous Easter Island.

    Hanga Roa/Easter Island/Chile, arrival 8.00 hrs
    Overnight stay on board

    The volcanic Easter Island has been steeped in legend since its discovery on Easter Sunday in 1722. Even today, the several-tonne stone statues, which measure up to 20 metres in height, have not revealed their secrets. You will be mystified by these giants on your trip to the moai statues*: are they evidence of a highly developed system of ancestral worship? How were they transported? What caused the civilisation there to vanish? Embark on a journey shrouded in legend through almost 1,000 years of settlement history. On the trail of myths and legends*, you can also explore the famous Ana Te Pahu, the cave of bananas, and fall under the spell of Ahu Akivi, the altar of the seven moai. Enjoy fascinating insights into the religion of a sophisticated culture long dead. At the end of your cruise, you will have enjoyed many unforgettable moments and you will know why this expedition with the BREMEN really is an insider’s tip.
