Travel photography buffs will love this—Lindblad Expeditions continues to partner with National Geographic, offering a wide variety of Shoot the Wild World itineraries available in destinations worldwide, and now offering your clients airfare promotions as well. But it’s not all about clients this time—through March 31, agents can work toward a Lindblad expedition of their own.
What Matters To Clients For example, the Impressions of Northern Norway: Arctic Norway to the Northern Fjords itinerary takes travelers 600 miles from the North Pole to Svalbard, where they’ll find icebergs, fjords and mountains, all inhabited by the local population of polar bears. From there, guests cruise south to Nordland in search of warmer temperatures and greener landscapes, with nature such as birds, reindeer, and wildflowers waiting for their moment in the spotlight. Rates start at $8,240 pp dbl. Free roundtrip airfare between Oslo and Longyearbyen, Tromso or New York is available on select departures booked by March 31.
The Exploring Alaska’s Coastal Wilderness tour takes travel photographers for eight days of exploration with bear, eagle and whale encounters almost guaranteed. In addition to their photography practice, voyagers will enjoy hiking, kayaking, and even listening to the whale’s communication via the ships hydrophone. On board, guests can speak with the native Tlingit interpreter or national park ranger to get a feel for the region’s history. Rates start at $5,990 pp dbl. Free roundtrip airfare from Seattle is available for May and June departures booked by March 31.
What Matters To You While Arctic and Alaskan trips both offer great opportunities, it’s the Galapagos destinations that include an added benefit to agents. Through March 31, agents who book four cabins on Galapagos voyages aboard the National Geographic Endeavor and the National Geographic Islander will be rewarded with an expedition of their own. The promotion, called Book 4 and Explore, is valid on Galapagos departures through June 30 but booked by March 31.
A sample Galapagos itinerary, also featuring flight deals, includes the 10-day Galapagos Aboard National Geographic Endeavour. This cruise takes travelers through Santiago, Santa Cruz, Isabela and Fernandina islands in search of many forms of wildlife, including fur seals, blue-footed boobies, sea lions, iguanas, giant tortoises and, if lucky, maybe a family of orca. A day of exploring can be capped off with some relaxation time at the Endeavor’s onboard library, wellness spa or massage areas. Rates start at $4,750 pp dbl. Free roundtrip airfare between Miami or New York and Galapagos is valid on bookings made by March 31.
All Shoot the Wild World expeditions are accompanied by National Geographic photographers or certified photo instructors. For more information, call (800) 397-3348 or visit expeditions.com/book4andexplore or expeditions.com/agents.
