Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic is introducing Falklands 360°, its circumnavigation of the Falkland Islands. The voyage will also feature a visit to Argentina’s Isla de los Estados, a national nature preserve. Set aboard the 102-passenger National Geographic Orion, the 13-day expedition will depart twice in October next year. Rates begin at $10,850 per person based on double occupancy.
Both departures include National Geographic photographers and photo experts to help guests improve their skills. Flexible schedules will accommodate rare wildlife sightings or allow photographers to stay ashore during the best shooting times.
Highlights include hiking on Carcass Island in search of rockhopper penguins and exploring New Island, home to the blue-eyed shag and black-browed albatross. Other stops include Steeple Jason, where black-browed albatrosses breed.
