We’re introducing a new collection of short escapes: action-packed voyages lasting just five to nine days, each designed to introduce you to the very best a destination has to offer. Set sail on a weeklong voyage through the Galápagos Islands and see the archipelago’s most iconic creatures, from blue-footed boobies to sea lions and giant tortoises. Experience Iceland’s greatest geological hits while cruising the country’s diverse western coast. Or spend several days communing with gray whales and their calves in the breeding grounds of Baja’s Magdalena Bay. Join us aboard the National Geographic–Lindblad fleet and escape the everyday.
