50 Years of Frontiers: Adventure to Antarctica with Lindblad Expeditions


There are many reasons to visit Antarctica: commune with penguins, leopard seals, and albatross; behold majestic icebergs and glaciers; retrace the dashing steps of early explorers like Scott, Shackleton, and Amundsen; sea for see hundreds of miles through dust-free air; or the profound absence of anything human-made. 
A place of pristine beauty, Antarctica calls to many travelers as it did to me. For over two decades, I yearned to visit this last great wilderness, and finally, last February, I had the privilege to travel there aboard Lindblad Expeditions’ 102-passenger National Geographic Orion. 
Please enjoy this short video clip of my experience there. Despite Antarctica’s remoteness and inherent wildness, I had an extraordinary voyage – it was intimate, personal, exhilarating, and life-changing.
The Great White Continent is arguably threatened due to climate change, and I would encourage you to go sooner rather than later. The window of opportunity is a brief one, November-February, and small-capacity expedition cruise ships fill up well in advance. There are, however, a handful of openings on late 2019 and early 2020 Lindblad Expedition sailings. As a special incentive for Frontiers’ clients, Lindblad is offering a $500 per cabin “gear credit” toward the rental of essential pieces like waterproof boots, trekking poles, rain pants, etc. for 2019 departures!
