It’s about up-close encounters with beauty, wildness & the seldom-seen. Lindblad Expeditions brings you face-to-face with wildlife and culture by way of small, comfortable expedition ships that explore international capitals of wildness and culture like the Galapagos Islands, the Amazon, Arctic Norway, Greenland, Svalbard, the Russian Arctic, Antarctica, Costa Rica, Baja California, Patagonia, and Alaska. Since 1979 our expert naturalists and historians have been leading adventurous travelers along remote coastlines by Zodiak, kayak, and hiking. We work in partnership with National Geographic. Our expeditions are in great comfort--our excellent accommodations, superb food and warmly attentive service have been earning top awards for years.
ANNOUNCING NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ENDURANCE Lindblad celebrated the keel laying of the first polar new build in Gdynia, Poland on March 17th, 2018. “We are thrilled to announce the name of our new polar ship: National Geographic Endurance, due for delivery in the first quarter of 2020,” announced Sven Lindblad, President and CEO of Lindblad Expeditions. “She is named in honor of Ernest Shackleton, Lindblad Expeditions’ most revered explorer and will incorporate technical advances and create opportunities for guests beyond the reach of any contemporary ship.” WILD GALÁPAGOS ESCAPE: ALL THE MAGIC OF GALÁPAGOS IN JUST ONE WEEK Exploring it all in less time.

Lindblad Expeditions, the expedition travel pioneer that works in partnership with the National Geographic Society to inspire people to explore and care about the planet, takes travelers to explore and discover far-flung corners of the world. We always travel in the company of experts who make the experience enormously enriching. With our small expedition ships, Zodiac landing craft, kayaks, naturalists, historians, archaeologists and other staff, Lindblad strives to help open the eyes of our guests when it comes to truly exploring. We do this because we believe the more our guests connect with these places, the more they will become a force for preserving and protecting them. Travelers choose our expeditions for their adventurous aspects, but once on board, they discover that ship life affords a double dose of something we all need these days: comfort and ease.
