You’ll notice it in the tangles of mangroves, buried in the sand, in the clear sky above and beneath white-capped waves. Surrounding yourself in nature grounds you, transforms you and puts you in touch with world in new ways. Let us arrange a journey into nature’s laboratory — the Galápagos Islands — with Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic that will make your spirit feel more whole while you leave behind the lightest of footprints.

Meet the characters that played a huge role in Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection and evolution. Fluttering finches, nesting sea turtles, gentle giant tortoises, playful sea lions and other marine life thrive among the islands, and Lindblad offers a variety of eco-friendly ways to discover these interesting creatures. Whether you’re sailing on the intimate 48-person National Geographic Islander or the new 96-person National Geographic Endeavour II, you’ll have the opportunity to discover the islands by hiking tours, ocean kayaking, paddleboarding and snorkeling. Be entirely in the moment and completely connected to nature as you explore one of the most unique areas on Earth.
