Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic Adds Antarctica Departure

Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic has added an Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands departure to its 2019 lineup. The new voyage will depart on November 19, 2019 and will sail on the rerouted, 102-guest National Geographic Orion for a fourth departure. Since it is late in the season, Lindblad is offering guests a special booking incentive of free round-trip airfare from Miami / Santiago.

On this 24-day voyage guests will experience sensory overload (“just listen,” they say). Highlights include:

  • In Antarctica, guests can witness penguins, myriad bird species and whales; they can also kayak among icebergs and enjoy cross country skiing and snow shoeing, Zodiac cruises and hikes on land. 
  • South Georgia offers plenty of wildlife-viewing chances, with gentoo, rockhopper and macaroni penguins, elephant seals and fur seals all on display.
  • The Falklands offer a British take on the south, with grazing sheep and tea with the hardy islanders at their farms.  

Leading the immersive adventure will be an expedition leader, eight veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer, a Lindblad-National Geographic-certified photo instructor, and an undersea specialist. Joining the expedition as a special guest speaker is Dr. Peter Hillary; he has climbed the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on each of the seven continents) and he has been on over 40 mountaineering expeditions around the world.
