Make Arctic history on the inaugural voyage of National Geographic Endurance

The state-of-the art  National Geographic Endurance  makes her inaugural voyage this July, embarking in Reykjavik and returning there 17 adventurous days later. Be one of only 126 passengers onboard the world’s most advanced ice-class expedition ship as she gains access to vast wild areas where no passenger ship and few, if any, scientific expeditions have ever been. She will explore Iceland, where her walls of gleaming glass and expansive decks will provide optimal viewing of spectacular landscapes and abundant wildlife. Then  National Geographic Endurance  will follow the ice edge off the east coast of Greenland, an Arctic “savannah” for polar bears, walruses, and whales. If Greenland’s border opens for visitors, we’ll make landings and explore ashore. Add this history-making expedition ship to Iceland’s stunning fjords and thundering waterfalls and to the region’s extraordinary wildlife and icy seascapes and you get a don’t-miss expedition of a lifetime.

  • Be among the first to enjoy the style, comfort, and state-of-the art technology of National Geographic Endurance

  • Visit the breathtaking Arnafjörður fjord, called the Jewel of the West; and Dynjandi Waterfall, whose name translates as “thunderous”

  • Actively explore by taking Zodiacs into fjords and serene bays

  • Glide along East Greenland’s ice edge and be on the lookout for polar bears, whales, walruses, and seals

Living Volcano

Lindblad Director of Expedition Photography and geologist, Ralph Lee Hopkins, spent two weeks obsessively devoted to capturing the mood swings of the world’s newest and most active volcano. From vantage points all around the Geldingadalur site and a helicopter circling above it, he documented and reported on this historic natural phenomenon for our social media channels. See his stunning photos, videos and illuminating posts here.
