Itinerary Overview

The most exhilarating adventure the planet offers


Active, immersive expedition travel

Explore Antarctica in expedition style, aboard an authentic expedition ship is an incomparable experience and your guarantee of an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. Lindblad Expedition’s pioneering polar heritage and 50 years of experience navigating polar geographies is your assurance of safe passage in one of the wildest sectors of the planet. Our veteran polar expedition team enables you to:

  • See more of the legendary landscapes and habitats
  • Encounter iconic penguins, leopard seals, and marine mammals
  • Kayak among icebergs, Zodiac cruise past resting crabeater seals, and walk a slice of the continent with the best ice team on Earth
  • Experience the seldom-seen Antarctic undersea through the efforts of our undersea specialist
  • Benefit from our 175 collective years of Lindblad-National Geographic expedition experience to see and do all you came for and more.

Have up-close, personal penguin encounters

Travel with virtually any company to Antarctica, and you will see penguins. They are the citizens of the white continent, present in astounding numbers, and endlessly fascinating. Travel with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic, however, and you’ll travel equipped for up-close, personal encounters—with a fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks to enable you to get closer. You'll meeet a team of engaging experts that enable you to spend more time enjoying penguin society, and understand more of the adaptations that enable these remarkable animals to survive their environment.  

Take advantage of all the 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-National Geographic certified photo instructor, as well—to help you turn your point-and-shoot camera into an “aim and 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 every day we’re in Antarctica, sometimes twice a day—to walk ashore, kayak or Zodiac cruise among icebergs. Because our ships carry a fleet of both Zodiacs and kayaks, the ship's contingent can partake in activities at the same time. You’ll have a choice of activities each day, and the option to join the naturalist whose interests mirror yours. Enjoy the view from the bridge, the all-glass observation lounge, the library or the chart room. Visit the fitness center with its panoramic windows, or ease into the sauna or a massage in the wellness center.
