Nat Geo Orion to Sail Europe in 2016

Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic will set its course for Europe in 2016, where the National Geographic Orion will spend spring, summer and fall on a curated series of 22 one-week voyages.

The itineraries will explore Portugal, Spain, France, England, Ireland, Holland, Belgium, the Baltic Republics and Scandinavia. The routes have been designed to afford guests the option to take consecutive voyages to discover a range of destinations.

The voyages will be led by a team with a diverse scope of expertise about the countries being explored covering ancient and modern history, political science, art, viniculture and music, as well as leading active options such as hiking, biking and kayaking.

Special speakers will be drawn from journalism, science, and world affairs to add relevant insights as part of the ‘Global Perspectives Speakers’ program, and each voyage will feature a National Geographic photographer.

Dining aboard the 102-passenger ship will feature degustation menus by Australian chef Serge Dansereau, principal of Sydney’s The Bathers’ Pavilion.
