French Polynesia is a bucket list destination. Not only does it promise utopic paradise – think warm, crystalline seas, floury white beaches and verdant forest, but the destination offers a chance to bathe in thousands of years of history. Next, sail on to the fabled Pitcairn Islands, enjoying an unprecedented opportunity to meet the descendants of the Bounty mutiny while you are there. An overnight in Rapa Nui follows, then it’s on to the remote Alexander Selkirk and Robinson Crusoe Islands for further discovery and adventure. Disembark in colourful Valparaiso.
