Lindblad - National Geographic Alaska Expeditions - complimentary flights


*Complimentary flights on selected May and June 2014 expeditions*

With 30 years local knowledge of the region, Lindblad Expeditions explores remote parts of Alaska rarely accessible or experienced by mainstream tourism. A panorama of massive landscapes and towering glaciers, revealed through Lindblad National Geographic expeditions that combine the culture and raw wildlife of Alaska’s extraordinary surroundings.

Long hours of daylight during the northern hemisphere summer provide plenty of time to explore waterways and ashore, accompanied by the six person specialist expedition team, the largest in Alaska.

Encounter whales, bears and eagles, kayak in peaceful coves, hike through old-growth forest and get a sense of life in Alaska's quaint fishing villages. These expeditions epitomise the Lindblad Expeditions philosophy of providing truly meaningful travel experiences.

Flexibility is the key, and with a captain able to alter his route at any time to follow a pod of whales, there is no better way to experience the grandeur of Alaska.

Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructors aboard every departure will be on-hand to help hone guest’s photographic skills, ensuring they return home with memory cards full of outstanding images.
An undersea specialist will dive where few have ever gone, to film the seldom-seen creatures of the Alaskan deep.

Voyages in May and September will include a special exploration of Haida Gwaii, British Columbia (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands). Among the many voyage highlights is a rare visit to the islands’ sacred sites, including SGang Gwaii the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
