Family and Multi-Generational Travel

Expeditions offer extraordinary experiences for travelers of all ages

An expedition is the perfect way to experience the wild world with your family—whether it's nuclear or multi-generational. On every expedition we see grandparents, parents, and children connecting—sharing shipboard life, activities, discoveries, and creating a bright, collective family memory. Whether you're 8 or 80, there is joy in discovering these wild places together. 

 Hands-on activities and adventures to share
Snorkeling among playful sea lions in Galápagos, paddling tandem kayaks in Alaska's coves, or breathlessly watching a curious polar bear in the Arctic—these are the experiences you'll remember. Our daily, shared activities come in a diverse range of interests and fitness levels, perfect for explorers of any age. And NEW this year for kids & teens: the National Geographic Global Explorers program, designed in conjunction with National Geographic Education to help kids develop the mindset & skills of an explorer! 

Small ship are ideal for families
Traveling by ship offers the perfect balance of togetherness and space for family members to exercise their freedom and preferences. Aboard ship, kids can never wander far, but they're also able to explore their own interests. Even if you go separate ways during the day, enjoy the opportunity to reconnect over Zodiac forays, dinner, and nightly Recap. Kid-friendly menu options and impromptu movie nights with pizza are always a hit, too.

Card-worthy family photos
Since every expedition sails with a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor, and some ships with a National Geographic photographer, you're guaranteed to go home with top-notch shots!

Family travel savings—kids under 18 get $500 off
We believe that sharing an expedition with your kids or grandkids is a life-enhancing experience. Since we are committed to encouraging families to travel, we invite you to take $500 off the cost of your expedition for each child under the age of 18 traveling.
