Why travel with Lindblad

Venturing to the ends of the earth takes experience – and Lindblad Expeditions has more than 50 years’ experience turning vacationers into active and engaged explorers. Go aboard and discover a world of adventure travel you never knew existed.

National Geographic partnership. This collaboration in exploration between two like-minded organizations provides research, technology and conservation for extraordinary travel experiences you simply cannot find anywhere else.

Engaging Experts. The Naturalists and Historians are true experts in their fields. And they, along with National Geographic cruise guest experts, are always available for questions and casual conversation.

Everything is included. Unless it is an item of a personal nature or special arrangements (e.g. flightseeing over glaciers), everything you need to have a perfectly complete experience is included with your expedition.

Innovation and tools for exploration. The ships are equipped with kayaks and Zodiacs to take you into wild places safely, and utilize underwater video and audio technology that will bring the seldom seen or hear to vivid life.

Expeditions, not tours. Whether it’s on or off the beaten track, Lindblad brings adventure to travel by taking small groups to special places for distinctive and exclusive encounters with nature.

Flexibility, spontaneity and freedom. The thoughtfully crafted itineraries are built to include those often magical opportunities to experience nature’s unplanned events.

Fine food and accommodations. Skillfully prepared and presented regional cuisine, comfortable quarters and wellness programs make pleasure a significant part of the expedition experience.

Insider access. Thanks to their long history of exploration, Lindblad is able to provide insider and many times exclusive access to some of the world’s most interesting places and people.

Relaxed and informal atmosphere. Casual clothes and a matching attitude are hallmarks: no need to dress up, and many opportunities for fun, adventure and laughter.

Respect for the world. Lindblad travels in an environmentally responsible manner. And, they donate funds, time and resources, often in partnership with local organizations and guests, to protect or restore the world’s wild places.


Lindblad's fleet consists of nimble, intimately-scaled expedition ships, able to safely venture where larger cruise ships cannot!
