The NEW Adventure & Expedition Cruising Lounge feature brings together an inspirational collection of exciting expedition and wildlife cruise operators to spark interest and present travellers with all there is to consider when planning the adventure of a lifetime.
With the rising popularity of wildlife and exploratory travel, adventure & expedition cruising experiences offer incredible journeys for travellers who want to experience unimaginable encounters to all corners of the world. From the icy polar regions to the Galapagos Islands, or the Amazon to Papua New Guinea the choice of destinations, activities and itineraries you can visit these days are simply astonishing.
Discover the best sites to view polar bears, to meet indigenous tribe people or follow in the footsteps of legendary explorers. Adventure cruising can take you to places other ships cannot reach – and mostly with just a small group of passengers per voyage. River journeys, exploratory voyages and small ship adventures to destinations off-the-beaten-track present extraordinary alternatives to mainstream and larger resort style ships.
Regions: Amazon - The Arctic - Antarctica - Central America - Galapagos - Patagonia - South America
Chimu Adventures offer small ship expedition cruises to some of the most remote parts of the planet. Their travel style encourages extra shore time for guests, whilst using the convenience of the ship as a base, watching the world go by - you will get up close and personal with your destination. Whether on an expedition to Antarctica or the Arctic visiting the icy mainland in your zodiacs each day, in South America cruising the Amazon on an eight berth cruiser (equipped with personal spa and crew) or visiting private islands off the coast of Brazil, you’ll be spoilt for choices. You could also be photographing the enigmatic wildlife of the Galapagos or heading further south to cruise through Patagonia and the Chilean Fjords en-route to the ‘end of the world’ in Ushuaia.
Regions: Africa & Indian Ocean - American West Coast – Antarctica - Australia - Galapagos Islands - Greenland - Russian Far East - South Pacific Islands - The Arctic
Whether it’s attending a briefing, exploring by Zodiac©, or hiking on terra firma, an expedition cruise with Silversea will immerse you immediately in your destination. One day you could be snorkelling with sea turtles, the next day blazing a trail through an old growth rain forest while long-tailed macaques screech overhead. Every moment can amaze: a Wandering Albatross lifting its enormous wings to take flight, a whale so close you can count the barnacles on its back. Silversea Expeditions’ complimentary activities guarantee close-up encounters with a region’s unique flora and fauna, its most remote landscapes and habitats … and with the insight of expert guides who are always at hand.
