Swim with sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, kayak alongside humpback whales in Alaska’s Inside Passage, hike over pristine glaciers in remote Arctic Svalbard, or navigate by Zodiac around turquoise blue ice sculptures in Antarctica...
Like stepping through the cover of a National Geographic Magazine, expedition travel is all about experience and participation—connect with nature, discover new cultures, and along the way learn to better understand our planet. Each trip is accompanied by expert naturalists, lecturers, and guides who interpret and share their passions and intimate knowledge about each unique destination. Itineraries are flexible and vary according to weather conditions and the wildlife encountered.
Our travel experts will help you determine which trip is right for you based on your interests and needs. This is in contrast to what you will hear from individual companies who will always tell you their trip is the best and right for you. Also our longstanding partnerships with the highest quality tour operators ensure our clients receive the very best service and peace of mind in the event of trip changes. Our partners give our clients preferential treatment since they value the volume of business we provide and established relationship.
