Expedition Cruising

Reindeer_Arctic Lindblad Expedition

What is expedition cruising, and which are the best expedition cruise lines?

Expedition cruising offers travelers the unique blend of adventure, tranquility, enrichment, and ultimate experience.  It is where luxury meets adventure, and offers guests the opportunity to see rare wildlife and stunning landscapes in the most remote destinations on earth.

Compared to ocean or river cruises, expedition cruises tend to have smaller vessels and flexible itineraries so they can be nimble with wildlife sightings and the natural surroundings.  Because enrichment is the focus of expedition travel, you will want to travel with a company who boasts expert guides to get the most out of your trip.

If you are an adventure traveler looking for an immersive vacation, an expedition cruise will exceed your expectations and change the way you experience the world.
