Explore Alaska's Authentic Wilderness in Summer 2019 with Lindblad Expeditions and Poe Travel

An Alaska experience like no other awaits with Lindblad Expedition . . . 

 Step aboard for an unforgettable exploration of a dynamic environment teeming with wildlife-and get the most in-depth experience possible. Lindblad's intimate 62-person expedition cruise ships to Alaska are perfect for exploring places large ships cannot go. You'll sail through narrow channels and past towering mountains, stand on the open bow to observe wildlife (arms flung wide), and awaken to fresh vistas of glaciers and forests.

During the you can hike, kayak, and snap photos. Head off to explore a glacier aboard Lindblad's expedition landing craft; go for a long, challenging hike in a towering forest with a wellness specialist, or a a short, slower walk with a naturalist; or just stay aboard and read if that’s more your speed.

Exclusive to Lindblad, and on every Alaska expedition, an undersea specialist dons cold-water diving gear to shoot video from the deep to share in the ship's lounge, allowing you to see kelp forests swaying in the currents and discover strange and wonderful marine life seldom seen by humans.

Alaska is, of course, renowned for its iconic wildlife—whales, bears, and eagles to name but a few. You’ll also get to see pods of orca, groups of sea lions, and potentially puffins. You may even spot rough-skinned newts and carnivorous plants—if you’re lucky. The forest and seas are brimming with life!

Exclusively with Lindblad: Expedition Photography Program 
Every Alaska departure offers the services of a Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic certified photo instructor. This veteran naturalist is specially trained to assist you with camera settings, the basic elements of framing, composition, and lighting, and to provide tips to ensure you go home with fantastic photos. You'll be able to capture the moments of your expedition and return a confident photographer with some of the best shots of your life!

You can also choose to take a special Photo Expedition, specially designated departures, custom-tailored for immersion in photography—whether you're a beginner, advanced hobbyist, or serious shooter. Explore Alaska where photo ops abound with an expert at your elbow to give you the tip you need when you need it and all the time you need to get your shots right. They also offer unique “share and learn” opportunities like onboard photo clinics, one-to-one critiques, and inclusive “laptop gallery” events to see each other's shots.
