Explore South America in Style, Expedition Cruising

story by: Mike Williams

Imagine a swashbuckling adventure through the Amazon or following in Darwin's footsteps and losing yourself in the incredible wildlife and ecological wonder of the Galapagos Islands. Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic, leaders in expedition cruising, provide extraordinary and authentic South American experiences while still providing the comfort and ease of travel that cruising is renowned for. 

By day you could be snorkelling with giant sea turtles or having a National Geographic-certified photographer help you spot monk saki monkeys in the Amazon rainforest. At night you'll be enjoying 24/7 hospitality, dining on locally inspired cuisine made with fresh ingredients and gaining a deeper understanding of the region through daily recaps and seminars. Starting each day with a pre-breakfast stretching session led by a wellness specialist will help ensure you’re ready to tackle whatever once-in-a-lifetime experiences these fantastical destinations will throw at you.

Right now House of Travel has two fantastic nine-night Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic South America cruises on sale. Embark on a Galapagos Island voyage or an expedition to the Upper Amazon, or combine them both to have an in-depth experience of two word capitals of wildness.

Darwin described the Galápagos Islands as 'a little world within itself' and you'll get an unparalleled, in-depth experience of its magic and mystery aboard the National Geographic Endeavour. There are year-round weekly departures and the expedition anchors at the shores of a number of different islands, such as Isla Santa Cruz, Isla Santiago and Isla Bartolomé. Highlights include observing rare giant tortoises and other exotic wildlife in the wild either on foot or by kayak or Zodiac. You'll also get the opportunity to snorkel with sea lions, sea turtles, penguins and maybe even a swimming iguana!

The Upper Amazon expeditions depart year-round and venture into the heart of the Peruvian rainforest aboard the Delfin II riverboat. The Amazon is a marvel of biodiversity and offers unparalleled opportunity to be entranced with nature. Slipping through intricate jungle waterways on skiffs and kayaks, Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic and a veteran team of regional experts treat guests to experiences and insight usually reserved for naturalists and wildlife biologists. Highlights include exploring the waterways of the flooded “Mirrored Forest” of Pacaya-Samiria National Reserve and visiting native ribereños villages at the edge of the Amazon River. There’s also rain forest hikes, birding walks and nocturnal river safaris to look forward to before retiring each night to the comfort of the Deflin II and delicious Peruvian-inspired cooking.
