Uncovering exotic wildlife and ancient civilizations, from jungle rivers to sky-scraping icebergs, the wonders of the world await you on an expedition cruise.
Arctic adventure teems with life and dizzyingly beautiful vistas, as you explore the fjords of Norway and Greenland, navigate the icy channels of the Northwest Passage, maybe even drink Champagne at the North Pole itself. Cruising to the Antarctic Peninsula is the chance of a lifetime, sailing the notorious Drake Passage to commune with the penguins, seals, and whales – perhaps crossing the Antarctic Circle, a feat very few people have ever done.
If variety is paramount, trip down from the Canadian Arctic to the eastern coastline of North America and on to Bermuda, then Barbados perhaps. Or head from the Caribbean through the Panama Canal and down the Pacific Ocean side of South America, all the way to Lima. And if an adventure of epic proportions is on your wish list, consider a sweeping journey from Greenwich to Brazil via Casablanca and Cape Verde. With an expedition cruise, the world is at your feet.
Wherever you head, you are certain to find all the luxury trimmings well taken care of – on ships big and small – with cruise lines such as Scenic, Seabourn, Hurtigruten, and Silversea leading the way. Add in some of the most experienced expedition leaders in the world and you’ve got an experience to treasure for life.
