An Expedition Vessel as the comfortable way to reach the inaccessible: Discover the Amazon Rainforest, the Fjords of Chile, Tierra del Fuego in Patagonia, the Galapagos Islands and Antarctica

Expedition Cruising is one of the best ways to discover remote regions, from the comfort of a moving yacht, with no packing or unpacking, and causing minimal or no disturbance to the natural environment.

Enjoy the experience of exploring on a traditional riverboat in the Amazon rainforest and the backwater of Kerela in India; a small yacht to get close to the friendly wildlife of the Galapagos Islands, an expedition ship in China, the Brahmaputra in India and through the fjords and glaciers of Patagonia's Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn; reach the ultimate white continent in Antarctica and the amazing wildlife of the Falklands and South Georgia islands.
