Ponant announces 21 departures to the Arctic in summer 2019 with up to 30% off select sailings. New itineraries include, “Magnificent Volcanoes of the Aleutian Islands,” June 24-July 6, 2019 taking guests along the Pacific Ring of Fire; and “Greenland of Great Explorers,” July 12-26, 2019 to follow in the footsteps of great French Explorers who pushed the boundaries of polar navigation in the 19thcentury. Iceland itineraries will also be offered aboard Le Champlain, one of the new ships in the PONANT EXPLORERS series, offering a kaleidoscope of landscapes and wildlife: vast glaciers, breathtaking fjords, arctic foxes, and whales. Ports of call will include Reykjavik, featuring the largest visual art institution in Iceland; Grimsey, the nation’s northernmost territory and the ideal place to experience the midnight sun; and Heimaey, encased in a fortress of lava and home to 8,000 puffins.

Additional expeditions will take guests to Spitsbergen, located 800 miles from the North Pole; Baffin Bay, accessible only briefly during the summer when the sea ice becomes fragmented; and Alaska with its vast open spaces perfect for wildlife spotting opportunities, including brown bears and bald eagles.
