The intriguing disputed zone of the Falkland Islands – long the object of contention by both Great Britain and Argentina – will be the subject of a brand new expedition itinerary announced by Lindblad Expeditions.
Collaborating with its long-time partner National Geographic, the ‘Falklands 360°’ experience will feature a circumnavigation of the island region, also visiting Isla de los Estados – one of the newest nature reserves in the Southern Hemisphere.
Guests onboard will have the opportunity to view plenty of the Falklands native wildlife with frequent excursions via onboard zodiac watercraft. Hallmarks of the Lindblad experience will see the usual complement of photographic and scientific experts also onboard to offer their expertise of the region to passengers.
Two departures of an 11-day itinerary have been scheduled for the 20th and 29th of October, 2016 and will be operated by the National Geographic Orion – a 102-passenger ship which joined the Lindblad fleet less than three years ago. Cabins are priced from $13,560 per person twin share.
The first departure on 19 October has been officially designated as a Photographic Expedition – designed specifically to help wildlife snappers and nature photo enthusiasts to hone their craft under the guidance of official National Geographic Magazine photographers.
