Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic is introducing eight extended-length voyages, ranging from 18 to 38 days, that give guests more time to explore the destinations they’re visiting. Though the line has previously offered longer itineraries in the Antarctic and Arctic, this is the first time the line is offering them in other parts of the world.
According to the line, the “epic” voyages bring guests to seldom-seen and rarely explored destinations, “reminiscent of true exploration of years past…”
The eight options include:
Atlantic Isles Discovery: From the Falklands to Madeira (38 days, March 7, 2023) – This transatlantic voyage departs from Buenos Aires and visits the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Tristan da Cunha, Saint Helena, and more before finishing in Madeira, Portugal.
Wild Coasts of Argentina, South Georgia, and the Falklands (24 days, Oct. 18, 2022) – Guests will explore the Argentinian coastline, visiting secluded ports, wildlife-rich estuaries and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Peninsula Valdes (at the height of the Southern right whale breeding season). The itinerary also visits the Falkland Islands and South Georgia.
South Georgia and the Falklands (19 days, Oct. 4, 2022; Feb. 26, 2023; Feb. 26 2023) – This sailing follows in the footsteps of Shackleton, with in-depth wildlife explorations of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.
