Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions
In the 30+ years of our expedition history in the Arctic, the quality of our veteran staff is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And, now that we are aligned with National Geographic, there are no better Arctic travel guides anywhere.
The team composition
Every expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader, an assistant expedition leader, and a team of eight naturalists, many of them polar veterans, of a variety of specialties: zoology, biology, ornithology, geology, polar history, and more. Other members of the 15-person team include an undersea specialist, a National Geographic photographer, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, a Global Perspectives guest speaker, a video chronicler, and a wellness specialist. Together they provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation for this extraordinary and diverse geography.
More specialties and personalities
Our 10-to-1 guest-to-staff ratio ensures you the benefits of diverse backgrounds, and the freedom to head out on activities with the naturalist whose interests mirror your own. You are never assigned to a specific group, and our team can custom-tailor activities to match your activity level—to make each day of your expedition uniquely yours, and deeply rewarding.
