Active, immersive expedition travel
Patagonia is an awe-inspiring landscape that stretches across the Andes from the Atlantic to the Pacific and down to Cape Horn. Explore it expedition-style aboard an authentic expedition ship, and enjoy up-close encounters in wild, virtually inaccessible lands. Our expedition style of travel in Patagonia enables you to:

  • See the iconic wildlife of the southern ocean: penguins, whales, elephant seals and more
  • Explore the rugged and beautiful pampas, steppes and mountain vistas of Patagonia
  • Visit vast private parklands by special arrangement with their owners
  • Experience the raw beauty of must-see Chilean fjords
  • Begin your adventure in the cosmopolitan capital of Buenos Aires

Explore protected lands by special permission
We’ll venture to the Karukinka Natural Park, a bountiful reserve of sub-Antarctic woodlands, peat bogs, windswept steppes, and snowcapped mountain ranges, spanning 1,160 square miles. Established in 2004 by a gift from global investment bank Goldman Sachs to the Wildlife Conservation Society, We’ll visit Karukinka by special permission. And we’ll also enjoy access to another park called Yendegaia, a stunning 95,000 pristine acres that forms a landscape bridge between two of Patagonia’s wild areas. Recently given to the Chilean government, Yendegaia was established by Kris and Doug Tompkins, wilderness advocates who saw its conservation potential and have successfully worked to preserve it.

Take advantage of  superb photo ops
You’ll have a National Geographic photographer as your traveling companion, to inspire you and provide tips in the field. And the services of a Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic certified photo instructor, as well––to help you turn your point-and-shoot camera into an aim & create. You’ll find no end of subjects, and the help you need to return home with your best photos ever.

Every day is active and engaging 
You’ll get out on adventures often in Patagonia, sometimes twice a day––to walk or hike, kayak or Zodiac cruise through the fjords and alongside towering glaciers. Because National Geographic Explorer has a fleet of both Zodiacs and kayaks, the entire expedition community can embark at once on forays, no waiting around for returning parties. You’ll have a choice of activities each day, and the option to join the naturalist whose interests mirror yours. Choice also includes opting to enjoy the view from the all-glass observation lounge, the library, or the chart room. To visit the fitness center with its panoramic windows, or ease into the sauna, or have a massage in the wellness center.

Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, an assistant expedition leader, eight veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, an undersea specialist, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, a wellness specialist and a video chronicler. Their knowledge and passion for Patagonia is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Meet the team
