HOT SPRINGS & ICEBERGS aboard the National Geographic Explorer!

Travel with Dr. Laurie McHargue

SEPTEMBER 9-17, 2018 - Waiting List only


We invite you to join Dr. Laurie McHargue in an exploration of the natural splendor of Iceland and the spectacular landscapes of West Greenland. During this unique land, sea, and air adventure, we’ll get an exhilarating introduction to these lands— both natural wonderlands.

Iceland and Greeland

In Iceland, we’ll visit Reykjavík, the world’s northernmost capital, to discover its culture, cuisine, and character, and then venture beyond to explore its waterfalls, hot springs, and geysers. Our itinerary offers hiking, biking, horseback riding or an excursion of the renowned Golden Circle. Two special features include: a cooking class at Salt Kitchen and an exclusive dinner on lovely Viðey Island.

We’ll then venture more deeply into the wonderland of the Arctic, first on a charter flight over Greenland’s massive ice cap (one of the most scenic flights in the world), and then aboard the finest expedition ship, National Geographic Explorer, on a discovery of West Greenland’s coast. We’ll explore some of the largest icebergs on Earth while sailing along Greenland’s ice edge and into its deep fjords. We’ll meet the hardy inhabitants who call the Arctic home and possibly witness the majestic Northern Lights in all their glory and more!

In addition to Dr. Laurie McHargue, we’ll travel with an expedition leader; naturalists, several with geological expertise; cultural specialists; and an undersea specialist. To help you capture the experience, a National Geographic photographer and a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor will be aboard.

Book now to receive complimentary charter airfare between Reykjavík and Kangerlussuaq (a $1,450 value). Also, on this voyage, we will cover your bar tab and tips for the crew. Call for details. To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form or call 800-252-4910.
