Compagnie du Ponant has introduced its summer 2013 collection on a selection of its yachts - Le Boréal, L’Austral, Le Soléal and Le Ponant. From April to November they will be sailing across the Arctic, Northern Europe, Asia and the Mediterranean with new itineraries.

As an example, a 12-day Great North and the Arctic tour on Le Soléal explores the volcanic Kamtchatka Peninsula and its nature reserves, which are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Home to brown bears, sea lions and bird colonies, the region is renowned for its scenery, including its fjords and the Geyser Valley. Departing on September 24, 2013, the tour costs from £5,252 per person including flights from Paris.

The line has also invited passengers to discover new themed cruises in partnership with various media outlets and partners. Guests will be able to participate in workshops, conferences and courses including photography, economy and wealth management, Celtic culture, southern flavours, lifestyle and beauty.

Pre- and post-cruise programmes are also available.
