As pioneers in exploration, National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions share a passion for adventure, discovery, and conservation. Since 2004, the alliance between National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions is offering extensive resources and provides extraordinary small ship voyages to some of the world's most remote and fascinating places. The alliance' fleet of five expedition ships includes the National Geographic Endeavour, National Geographic Islander, National Geographic Sea Bird, National Geographic Sea Lion, and the National Geographic Explorer. Except those expedition ships Lindblad Expeditions is offering three more vessels - the sail assisted yacht Panorama, the river-sea ship Lord of Glens and the river ship Salacia (the latter cruising Nile river in Egypt).

Lindblad is a name that is synonymous with expedition travel. In the 1960s, Lars-Eric Lindblad pioneered soft adventure travel by taking U.S. travelers to places never before explored, such as Antarctica. Today his son, Sven-Olof Lindblad, continues that tradition with the company he formed in 1979 which offers cruises and tours all over the world. The hallmark of Lindblad Expeditions is the staff of topflight naturalists, historians and archaeologists that accompany each of its trips as guides and lecturers. Each itinerary is carefully researched and planned to provide the optimum experience. And once on the water, itineraries are flexible depending on weather and wildlife sightings. Because of the superb experiences this company delivers, it has elevated itself to the very top of the expedition travel world. Their main competitor in the expedition cruises sales market is the luxury travel company Abercrombie and Kent. Lindblad cruises are pricey, but they deliver on their promise.
