In a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, National Geographic/Lindblad Expeditions were named as one of the “best bets” in educational cruises.
National Geographic/Lindblad Expeditions was given high marks for the following attributes:
- Nature focused: Naturalists give onboard presentations, lead hikes and provide “constant narration” of what passengers are seeing
- History & Culture: Some voyages also feature historians or prominent explorers, such as former astronauts.
- Photography: Photography also plays a role in these excursions, with contributors to National Geographic magazine on some trips.
Upcoming sailings include:
- Land of the Ice Bears: An In-Depth Exploration of Arctic Svalbard: Features the environment and wildlife of the Arctic, with hikes and trips in small boats in search of walruses, reindeer, seals, and polar bears. Guest experts include: Steve Mac-Lean, ecologist and polar-bear specialist; Tim Severin, explorer, author and filmmaker; Steve Blamires, historian and authority on the Celtic, Viking, and Inuit peoples; Michael Nolan, award-winning photographer who specializes in marine animals.
