During this time of social isolation, Lindblad Expeditions is bridging the distance – bringing the world’s wild places & keeping moments of “ahhh” alive and well – through a Virtual Expedition to explore the world’s most remote destinations.
The small ship adventure travel company is taking guests on a virtual expedition, designed to offer the engaging and reassuring rhythms of life on board – from morning stretch classes to exhilarating sights, photo ops and evening recap daily at 6pm, complete with cocktail recipes from fleet menus.
As the Virtual Expedition unfolds in the weeks ahead – and pulling from a renowned expedition team of naturalists and experts in isolation – there will be activities for kids led by Lindblad’s team of certified field educators; lectures with the line’s renowned naturalist team; live musical performances from around the world; artisan demonstrations; and cooking demos of sustainable shipboard bites.
And a special evening recap will reveal the newest addition to their fleet, National Geographic Endurance, via a virtual ship tour led by the Captain and members of his team.
“We’re all adjusting to our new ways of living. Never have any of us experienced anything like this and we’re all having to learn new tricks during a period of social distancing,”
Sven Lindblad, CEO of Lindblad Expeditions.
Choreographed with all the hallmarks of a Lindblad expedition, the Daily Program will be posted to Virtual Expedition. Flexible & spontaneous, the expedition will feature new discoveries each day, using Facebook and Instagram for both video and live activities.
