Lindblad Expeditions

Svalbard, Norway
Eye-opening expeditions into the heart of nature.

A pioneering small ship-based travel company, Lindblad Expeditions inspires you to explore and care about the planet. Share the adventure with engaging expedition teams, who are committed to helping you create unforgettable experiences. Discover stunning natural environments, above and below the sea, with help from leading photographers, scientists, researchers, and top-tier guest speakers. Explore Galápagos, Alaska, Antarctica, the Arctic, Baja California, and beyond.

Sample Experiences

Up Close in Galápagos

Meet the wildlife of Galápagos Islands. The wildlife of Galápagos is legendary for its uniqueness, allowing you a rare experience in the wild world. Each island contains endemic species, and you’ll have the opportunity to see a panoply of Galápagos’ creatures in their native habitats — on land and in the sea. Explore under the guidance of an expedition leader, naturalists, and professional photographer.

Small-Ship Alaska Cruises

Explore deep in the wild of Alaska aboard one of Lindblad Expeditions' small cruise ships. The four nimble ships are designed for just 62 or 100 guests, enabling you to see where bears forage, bald eagles soar, and whales spectacularly breach. And, you'll have up close adventures with land expeditions.

Land of the Ice Bears: Arctic Svalbard

Svalbard is a place of deep fjords, snow-capped mountains, massive sheets of ice, and magnificent polar bears. Experience the dramatic landscape on naturalist-led walks, and cruise among beautiful icebergs in a boat or a kayak. Be on the lookout for a variety of arctic wildlife from walrus and reindeer, to arctic fox, whales, and myriad birds. Take advantage of the legendary midnight sun side-by-side with a professional photographer.

Journey to Antarctica: The White Continent

Explore some of the world's last great wildernesses joined by a team of naturalists. View magnificent mountains and huge glaciers. Onshore, observe thousands of penguins: Gentoo, Adelie, and Chinstrap. Kayak in protected waters, paddling as penguins swim nearby.
