Lindblad has been a pioneer in eco-tourism since the 1960s and undertook the first tourist expedition to Antarctica in 1966. Founder Lars-Eric believed that educated people who saw things with their own eyes would be a potent force for the preservation of the places they visited, he made his notions a powerful force for the good of conservation and restoration projects worldwide. In line with this philosophy, the company maintains a global stewardship fund that goes towards preserving the remote places It operates.

All the ships feature comfortable accommodation, a lounge, a library and a wellness service so guest can relax after a long day of excursions. The ship's chefs create delicious meals that reflect the regions they visit. You will spend your time exploring on foot and by Zodiac, Sea kayak and stand up paddleboard.
