The best in exploration & adventure by land & sea
Now Lindblad & Natural Habitat Adventures are aligned—in every way
Lindblad Expeditions has become the majority shareholder of Natural Habitat Adventures, a leading travel and ecotourism company with a focus on responsible land-based travel. This alignment and partnership of two pioneering, environmentally enlightened travel companies will broaden opportunities for inspired travel for guests and fans of both companies.
Natural Habitat is known for their land-based polar bear tours in Churchill, Canada, Alaskan grizzly bear adventures, and small-group African safaris, and for their eco-consciousness. Since 2003, they’ve partnered with World Wildlife Fund to offer conservation and sustainable travel that directly protects nature in the places they explore. We share a history and an interest in these geographies, these core values, and a partnership with the National Geographic Society that provides a perfect compliment.
Coming soon! More land-based adventure travel
The acquisition of Nat Hab Adventures means more choices in exploring the planet’s capitals of wildness. We’ll soon be able to offer you and other travelers new land-based expeditions that mirror our values in active engaged travel, conservation and more. And Natural Habitat’s guests will enjoy a wealth of new ship-based options, as well. Love polar bears? See them on a land-based tundra buggy expedition in Churchill in the fall. Then, in summer, head into the High Arctic aboard National Geographic Explorer to see them in the wild on the pack ice!
“I’ve known and interacted with Natural Habitat and its President, Ben Bressler, for over a decade. Knowing our travel audience has diverse interests beyond sea-going expeditions, Nat Hab offers a perfect complement on land to what we do with ships. They are a focused, quality-oriented enterprise while, at the same time, understand the imperative for supporting important conservation work in areas visited from both a moral and business objective. We look forward to a productive partnership to broaden our offerings and our impact in the world’s wild places.”
- Sven-Olof Lindblad, President & CEO
