    • Arrive today in Santiago. We check in to the fine Hotel Santiago by Mandarin (or similar), centrally located in Santiago, and have the morning to relax. Santiago is nearly surrounded by the Andes, which form an inspiring backdrop to our afternoon guided overview of this vibrant city. We explore the Plaza de Armas, the main square, and nearby Presidential Palace, enjoying wonderful views from the many hills that dot the city. In the early evening, we gather for an informal reception and a drink at the hotel. (Day 2: L),

    • Today we fly by private charter flight from Santiago to Ushuaia to embark the Orion.

    • We awake this morning well into our journey across the Drake Passage. Lying between Cape Horn and the Antarctic Peninsula, the Drake Passage holds a unique place in maritime lore. Sometimes misty and gray, other times calm and clear, crossing the legendary Drake Passage is unforgettable — a milestone in any adventurer’s personal travel history. (B,L,D),

    • With nearly 24 hours of daylight, we make the most of our days, keeping a flexible schedule to take advantage of the unexpected — perhaps watching a 40-ton whale surface off the bow. We are out daily. One day, you may take a Zodiac foray amid towering bergs under a bright sun, walk along the shoreline amid a huge penguin colony, hike to a summit for a breathtaking view, or kayak along a cliff-side rookery in search of blue-eyed shags. And the next, you’ll have the thrill of watching the ship crunch through the pack ice, or step ashore to the cries of thousands of gentoo penguins. You’ll learn from our experts how to identify penguins and get photo tips from a National Geographic photographer while watching those same penguins. Back aboard, our Undersea Specialist may present video from that day’s dive — rare images taken up to 1,000 feet below the surface using our ROV. Our expert staff will craft an expedition where you will learn more, see more, and experience more. (B,L,D),

There’ll be plenty of time to enjoy a wellness treatment, log some time in the gym, or catch up on the book you haven’t had time to read. Talks from our staff will reflect on all you have seen and learned. (B,L,D),

Lindblad Expeditions

Lindblad Expeditions

Description:

Since 1979, Lindblad Expeditions has provided an alternative way to explore the world. Although each expedition is different, there are some elements that are common to all of them: they are designed to take you to places of natural beauty and compelling history, avoiding crowded tourist stops to actively experience beauty, wilderness and the seldom-seen. While the destinations may be adventurous, guests enjoy comfortable accommodations, fine food and service. An enthusiastic staff of naturalists and historians, National Geographic photographers, and Lindblad-National Geographic certified photographers are on hand to share their knowledge and inspire you. Drawn from the top tiers of journalism, science, and world affairs, the speakers in our Global Perspectives program add an extra layer of insight  to the expertise our expedition team and National Geographic photographers provide. Available exclusively aboard National Geographic Explorer, our program enables guests’ to travel with fascinating people that they might have seen in the news, on television, or in a lecture hall – now easily available to them in person, in the intimate and conversational context of an expedition. You’ll experience the sheer joy of traveling to new, exciting places with a small group of like-minded people, in an informal atmosphere. Spontaneity and flexibility are hallmarks of Lindblad’s expedition style, so you’ll always experience the wonders of the unplanned events nature provides along the way, from breaching whales, to an inspection of the ship by a curious young polar bear.

Inspired by Jacques Cousteau, Sylvia Earle, Bob Ballard  and other National Geographic explorers, Lindblad ships travel with undersea specialists who dive to video and reveal the undersea – then displayed in the warmth of the ship’s lounge in vivid HD with interesting commentary by the specialist. The footage may be of marine life few scientists, or human eyes for that matter, have ever seen.
