Luxury Barge Cruising on the French Waterways

French Country Waterways Adrienne

This is the perfection in the art of luxury canal cruising. As the luxury hotel barge navigates the frequent locks on the canal, you can step directly ashore for a leisurely stroll. Feeling adventurous? Take one of the barge’s bicycles to explore the quaint villages nearby. A have many warm memories as a child navigating the canals of Europe with my family. You may just want to try this slower pace vacation setting.
These two historic regions are linked by one of France's most scenic waterways, which rises over the summit of the Vosges Mountains. The contrasts between these neighboring areas provide an interesting counterpoint to the cruise. Alsace is a storybook land of half - timbered houses, cobblestone streets, and storks nesting on chimney tops. Hospitality beckons from wine taverns where foie gras, tart flambé, and kugelhopf are specialties. Lorraine is a place of pink sandstone villages, rolling meadows, and mountain forests. It is the home of the savory tart, the quiche lorraine, and Proust's favorite cake, the madeleine. 

Turning Vacationers into Explorers  Lindblad Galapagos Islands

Ready to create moments of personal discovery? You can feel like a pioneer, when you sail on a small, comfortable vessel — an expedition vessel - to places other ships simply cannot go. And accompanying naturalists will open each moment to your discovery. After all, you are on an expedition, not a tour: eye-opening, inspiring, fun, with every day different than the last.

The Land of Darwin and Close Encounters
As a company passionately devoted to the natural world — observing it, learning about it, protecting it and sharing it — would you very much like to see the place which inspired Charles Darwin to present the world with the groundbreaking theory of evolution? The Galápagos are one of the world’s most rare and wonderful places. You’ll be able not just to observe wildlife, but interact with it. Sea lions are highly approachable, as are the stoic marine iguanas. Galápagos penguins will willingly escort you on your snorkeling adventure.

Expedition Cruising Down Under and Beyond  Orion Autralian Expedition- AUSTRALIA

Expedition Cruising is not like your traditional cruise. The vessel is not the destination, but a means of discovery. Rejoice on this luxurious purpose-built five star expedition ship. It is large enough to offer onboard luxuries, yet small enough to access remote destinations that have previously been inaccessible. The comforts of a luxurious floating resort are combined with excursions to unspoilt nature reserves, pristine beaches, tropical reefs and historical towns.
Kimberley Expedition
This 10 night Kimberley Expeditions will undertake an in-depth exploration of this remote coastline, one way from Darwin to Broome or vice versa. Nothing can fully prepare you for the dramatic contrasts of Australia’s north-west, rich in Aboriginal culture and galleries of ancient artwork. Towards the west, in the historic pearling town of Broome, the colours of nature are vibrant and intense: rich red earth, azure blue seas and brilliant white sand beaches. North of Broome lies the ragged Kimberley coast, a place you can only comprehend from the sea. Rugged gorges, inlets, waterfalls plunging 100 metres all combine for an awe-inspiring experience you simply can’t have by travelling overland.
