Lindblad Expeditions Launches New Itineraries

Lindblad Expeditions (Logo)Lindblad Expeditions’ intrepid expedition developers have not ventured far from home during the pandemic, but their travel experience and ambitions roamed widely, creating new expeditions—spectacular new portals into beauty, wildness and the seldom-seen.

Each promises epic new adventures—whether it’s transiting the Northwest Passage or exploring New Zealand and the Subantarctic Islands.

The extraordinary adventures include new experiences—visiting Vietnam’s coastal villages or seeing rare penguin species in the Subantarctic isles, and fresh returns—to Raja Ampat for its vibrant undersea, or to Franz Josef Land for its untrammeled wildness. And all, given the renewed optimism provided by advances in therapeutics and testing, or the most important development, a vaccine, offer inspiration to those planning to explore like never before.

Lindblad’s return to travel will also see the debut of the line’s extraordinary new polar vessels, National Geographic Endurance and National Geographic Resolution, both making their maiden voyages in 2021.
