National Geographic Endurance will also depart on Epic Antarctica, a new and unique itinerary that explores the seventh continent with two departures only. The 34-day expedition, departing on 27 December 2020 and 26 January 2021, and will explore from the Antarctic Peninsula, to West Antarctica and the Ross Sea.
On select departures, guests can also participate in Citizen Science – where travellers can collect and contribute data on species they come across during their trip to South Georgia. Citizen Science creates opportunities for guests to meaningfully contribute to the understanding of the environments visited, with the data then made available to researchers, conservationists and governments for their review.
Each Antarctica season provides remarkable opportunities for guests – allowing them to explore the world's most remote and magisterial continent. With 50+ years of polar heritage, guests can experience this exhilarating adventure in the company of Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic's renowned expedition team.
