Because of the Global Pandemic, I had to postpone both (1) a Lindblad adventure through the Baja Peninsula with my mother and (2) my family’s trip to the Galapagos Islands. These are bucket list destinations for me, especially the Galapagos Islands. What made these trips extra special was that we would be traveling with Lindblad Expedition Cruises, learning from National Geographic writers, photographers, and filmmakers in addition to the Lindblad Expedition leaders, naturalists, and guides.
Though Lindblad Expedition Cruises offers intrepid travelers the chance to experience some of the world’s most exotic and remote destinations around the world, they have incredible itineraries right here in North America, including Alaska to the Pacific Northwest to the California Coast. You’ll explore remote areas and stunning, untouched wilderness as you spot wildlife and learn about the destination.

In your adventure along the Columbia and Snake Rivers you’ll walk in the footsteps of Lewis & Clark, exploring some of the regions they visited during their Corps of Discovery expedition. The journey begins in Portland, Oregon and ends in Clarkston, Washington* with several stops along the way.
You’ll be able to get out and explore nature via hiking, kayaking and more plus learn from Lindblad’s knowledgeable expedition team. Plus, taste the flavors of the Pacific Northwest’s legendary vineyards and farmlands.
*some itineraries run in reverse order
Nestled in the Pacific Ocean, mere nautical miles away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, lies a large and seldom-seen U.S. national park, incorporating both land and sea: Channel Islands National Park. During this five-day expedition, you can renew your mind, body, and spirit as you explore gorgeous, pristine landscapes and coastlines. Discover endemic flora and fauna—the endemic fox, for example—on hikes with Lindblad naturalists. Go paddle boarding, kayaking, and enjoy yoga and meditation classes, on your expedition ship.
If you enjoy spotting marine life, you’ll love exploring the Baja Peninsula with Lindblad Expedition Cruises. Called a “living aquarium” by Jacques Cousteau, the Sea of Cortez is home to many species of whales (like blue whales, humpback whales, and orcas…just to name a few), dolphins, seabirds (including brown- and blue-footed boobies), lizards, fish, and so much more. Explore desert isles and giant cactus forests. Learn about it all with Lindblad naturalists and undersea specialists, and capture Baja’s incredible light with your National Geographic Expedition certified photo instructor.
Alaska offers jaw-dropping scenery, fascinating cultures, and bountiful wildlife, and what better way to discover this bucket list destination than with experienced guides and specialists?! Lindblad Expedition Cruises offers several itineraries to Alaska, ranging from six-day escapes to 15-day adventures. You’ll get to savor the wide-open spaces and fresh Alaskan air as you see humpback whales breaching the water’s surface, spot brown bears along the shore, kayak along the remote coastline, and hike through the verdant wilderness.
Discover the beauty of British Columbia as you journey from Seattle to Vancouver, stopping at remote islands along the way. You’ll not only see marine and land-based wildlife while hiking, kayaking, or riding on Zodiacs, but you’ll also learn about the history and culture of First Nations people. Plus, you’ll be in good company with your expedition leader, a cultural interpreter, naturalists, a National Geographic Expedition certified photo instructor, and a wellness specialist.
