Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic unveils eight new epic voyages

NEW YORK — Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic has designed eight new, extended-length voyages that will allow guests to explore seldom-seen and rarely-explored destinations.

From New Zealand’s verdant coastlines to Indonesia’s tropical isles, the wide-ranging itineraries have been carefully crafted to bring guests further into remote and wild places, says Sven Lindblad, Founder and Co-Chair of the Board.

“Perhaps the most surprising and meaningful part of these epic adventures takes place not in the wild but on board. With enough time, you’re not just a guest, you’re somebody that everybody gets to know,” he adds.

Rates are per person, based on double occupancy. The new voyages include the following:

  • Atlantic Isles Discovery: From the Falklands to Madeira: 38 Days – A one-of-a-kind Transatlantic voyage from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to the Falkland Islands, and from the South Atlantic to the volcanic isles of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Departs March 7, 2023. Rates begin at $ $28,010.
  • Wild Coasts of Argentina, South Georgia, and the Falklands: 24 Days – While experiencing Argentina’s eastern coast, guests will explore secluded ports, wildlife-rich estuaries, and the waters of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Península Valdés at the height of Southern right whale breeding season.
