The frigid sea and icy islands of the Southern Ocean are a prelude to the vast frozen wilderness that awaits at the bottom of the world—yet they are just as captivating in their own right. This comprehensive voyage that includes the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula offers the ultimate southern polar wildlife itinerary. The entire region abounds with whales, seals, penguins, seabirds, indescribable landscapes and legendary history, and we embrace it all on an immersive 24-day adventure. South Georgia, with its rugged topography plus the sight and sound of hundreds of thousands of king penguins, is absolutely unforgettable. We also find the grave of famed explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton on the island. A team of top Expedition Leaders, naturalists, geologists and polar history experts accompanies us, for an unparalleled Antarctic journey.

Sail with the World Leader in Conservation-Focused Small Ship Cruising

We’re proud to offer a worldwide slate of Adventure Cruises through our partner, Lindblad Expeditions. Nat Hab joined forces with Lindblad in 2016 to expand our mutual collection of nature adventures. Founded in 1958 by Lars-Eric Lindblad, the company pioneered eco-conscious expeditions for “citizen explorers" and today is the world leader in conservation-focused small-ship cruises. Our Adventure Specialists are intimately familiar with the ships and itineraries and are on call to answer any questions you might have.

  1. This is the Ultimate Southern Ocean Adventure
    From Antarctica's ice to the massive wildlife spectacles of South Georgia and the Falklands, this itinerary provides a comprehensive immersion interpreted by a team of experts that's second to none. Lindblad's onboard staff includes an Expedition Leader, eight veteran naturalists, a National Geographic photographer, a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, an undersea specialist, luminary guest speakers, a video chronicler and a wellness specialist. Lindblad's expedition ships are nimble enough to access more remote spots where king penguin rookeries stretch as far as the eye can see, albatross stretch their wings across an 11-foot span, and massive herds of elephant seals fill the beaches.
  2. You Won't Find a More Experienced Expedition Team
    Lindblad's captains, crew, Expedition Leaders and staff have many decades and hundreds of expeditions' worth of collective experience. Their passion for Antarctica will enhance your adventure and your comprehension of the icebound landscape. Many staff members have written books about Antarctica, while Lindblad's most senior Expedition Leader helped create the original guidelines for guests visiting Antarctica, adopted verbatim by the Antarctic Treaty in 1991 and still in use today.
  3. A Suite of Tools Enhances Exploration
    An onboard fleet of 13 Zodiacs and 36 double kayaks facilitates close-up personal experiences with prolific wildlife in spots that larger vessels can't access. Lindblad pioneered polar kayaking, and each ship has a unique mobile platform that enables the safe deployment of kayaks within minutes of finding an anchorage. Meanwhile, on board the ship a remote-controlled crow’s nest camera feeds real-time footage into video screens within each cabin, a video microscope lets you view Antarctica’s invisible facets, and a hydrophone lets you listen in on whales. A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) capable of exploring undersea depths up to 1,000 feet gathers high-definition video to be shared for exploration above deck.
  4. Dive Virtually Below the Sea
    Unique to Lindblad, each voyage hosts an undersea specialist who dives into the polar waters to reveal its myriad wonders to guests above. Wearing almost 200 pounds of gear, the scuba diver shoots high-definition underwater footage of icy Antarctic water teeming with life, offering an entirely new vantage point from which to appreciate of the marine environment. The high-definition video footage is shared while guests remain warm and dry, along with the specialist’s lively narration, on plasma screens in the ship’s lounge.
  5. An Expert Photographer Helps You Capture Iconic Images
    Antarctica provides amazing photo ops and unusual challenges for photographers. We travel with a National Geographic photographer and a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, both of whom are on board to share techniques and composition advice to help you get the best shots of your life. Enjoy personalized assistance from the decks and ashore as they rove among us during the voyage.
  6. Increase Your Insight into Antarctica’s Heritage & Intrigue
    Our Global Perspectives program brings engaging guest speakers aboard to add insight gleaned from their experiences in the realms of science, policy, polar exploration and more. As part of the expedition community, these experts explore alongside our staff and guests, providing perspectives that will enhance your knowledge and overall experience of the region.
  7. We’re Committed to the Planet
    Natural Habitat Adventures is a standard-setter in eco-conscious travel. We were the world’s first 100-percent carbon-neutral travel company. And we continue to break innovative ground in adopting practices that help to protect our global environment. Because of our concern for the environment, we are pleased to partner with Lindblad Expeditions for our Adventure Cruises, a company that shares our values and commitment to the planet.
  8. Natural Habitat Adventures is WWF's Travel Partner
    Because of our environmental commitment and the outstanding quality of our adventures, World Wildlife Fund has chosen Natural Habitat Adventures as its worldwide travel partner, a designation we’re very proud of! When you book your Lindblad Expeditions cruise with us, a portion of your trip fee supports WWF.
