    About Lindblad Expeditions

    In 1958 Lars-Eric Lindblad, considered the father of eco travel, founded Lindblad Travel and pioneered the first non-scientific expeditions to Antarctica (1966) and Galápagos (1967), subsequently opening the Amazon, Papua New Guinea, China, Bhutan, and more to curious, respectful travellers.

    In 1979, his son Sven-Olof Lindblad founded Special Expeditions, eventually re-named Lindblad Expeditions, specializing in ship-based expedition travel.

    Since 2004, Lindblad Expeditions have inspired people to explore and care about the planet through expedition travel', in partnership with National Geographic.

    The discovery cruise programs are designed to appeal to the intellectually curious traveller seeking a voyage that's ecologically friendly and educational, as well as being relaxing.

    Days aboard are spent learning about life above and below the sea (from National Geographic experts to high-caliber expedition leaders trained in anthropology, biology, botany and geology) and observing the world either from the ship or during shore excursions; which are included in the cruise package.

    Educational films and slide presentations aboard ship precede nature hikes and quick jaunts aboard Zodiac boats.

    Flexibility and spontaneity are keys to the experience, as the route may be altered at any time to follow a pod of whales or school of dolphins.

    The company now operates a fleet of ten ships, including the 148-guest National Geographic Explorer, the world's ultimate expedition ship, and the 106-guest National Geographic Orion, the newest ship in the Lindblad-National Geographic fleet.

    All ships sail equipped with sophisticated exploration tools, to provide unique, immersive experiences in the planet's capitals of wildness and culture.

    Lindblad's expedition ships regularly explore Galápagos, Antarctica, Alaska, Arctic Norway, Baja California, Costa Rica and Panama, Europe, the Baltics, as well as Vietnam and Cambodia in Asia.
