Discover What's New

Your passion for exploration is what drives us to design unique and innovative experiences that immerse you fully in your destination. In the upcoming travel seasons, we are delighted to offer an array of new expeditions in parts of the world we have never explored before, as well as additional departures of some of our most popular adventures. We are also welcoming an elegant tall ship and a sophisticated riverboat to the fleet, crafting new partnerships, and launching new special offers to help you connect more deeply and more often with our planet’s abundant wonders.

Fly the Drake Passage

Beginning November 2024, Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic is thrilled to offer travelers two new, more time-efficient ways to discover the White Continent, with itineraries that fly over the legendary Drake Passage. Aboard the National Geographic Explorer, embark on an 8-day voyage that flies across the Drake Passage on a two-hour charter flight to and from Antarctica, or opt for a 10-day itinerary that includes the best of both worlds—a ship voyage across the famous Drake Passage to Antarctica and return flight.
