Lindblad

For the ultimate in adventure cruise ship holidays, Lindblad Expeditions have to be on the list. The company, founded by passionate expedition traveller Lars-Eric Lindblad, follows his vision to discover unknown places and to share the unique cultural and environmental aspects of these places with others.

These first adventure travel expeditions led many to define him as the father of "eco-tourism." In 1979, Lars Eric's son Sven Lindblad founded Special Expeditions as a division of Lindblad Travel, enabling the company to further its mission of offering innovative and educational travel expeditions that were primarily marine focused. The company's name was later changed to Lindblad Expeditions.

Today the company is focused on finding creative ways to explore the places already "discovered", and what really appeals to us is adventure cruises to destinations such as Antarctica, Alaska, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon.

Lindblad Expedition Cruises' ships are mainly small expedition vessels with Zodiacs, sea kayaks, onboard Naturalists and underwater cameras...all examples of how Lindblad continually strives to help open the eyes of curious guests who wish to explore the world off the beaten track. They do this because they believe the more their guests connect with these incredible places, the more they will become a force for preserving and protecting them.

Under the guidance of experienced leaders who have a great respect for natural and cultural environments, Lindblad Expeditions continues to approach expedition travel as a catalyst for making a difference in one's life, and in the world.
