Tauck Small Ship Cruising

Expeditions

Expedition-style cruise experiences provide today's "explorers" a unique window through which to view the often unseen world and some of Earth's rarest wildlife.

Tauck Expedition Small Ship Cruises
Snaefellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

Welcome to Expeditions

Exotic lands are best explored in the time-honored way, from the sea to the shore. Sail aboard modern and magnificent expeditionary ships as you cast anchor on timeless, remote islands... as you navigate ice floes to stand on the ethereal seventh continent... or as you walk across the Arctic Circle, a once-in-a-lifetime feat... just to name a few. These are the bucket list experiences other travelers only dream of. 

Designed for up-close exploration of wildlife-rich shores, each expeditionary cruise offer hands-on, eyes-open revelations of often unseen worlds in regions such as Svalbald, Norway... where there are more polar bears than people... in the Tracy Arm Fjord with its sheer cliffs and towering waterfalls... and in landings in Antarctic ripe with penguins, whales, seals and more.

Amazing San Cristóbal Island

San Cristóbal Island, home to the rarest of the rare

When you cruise to San Cristóbal Island in the Galápagos Archipelago , you'll encounter wildlife you won't find anywhere else on Earth – on shore excursions aboard panga (Zodiac-style rafts) for "wet landings" in shallow water or dry landings on rocky beaches. At Cerro Colorado, the breeding center of giant Galápagos Tortoises, you'll see some of the ongoing conservation efforts underway to save these endangered behemoths... although the elusive tortoises, who nap up to 16 hours a day, are not easy to spot in the wild. Not so with Galápagos sea lions, however; chances are good that you'll find yourself splashing around in the water with some of these sociable, whiskered locals.

A visit to Vigur Island

Exploring Vigur Island in Iceland's Westfjords

Vigur is a small island of the Ísafjarðardjúp fjord in the remote Westfjords of Iceland. Known for its sheep farming, today there is just one farm on the island, operated by three generations of the same family that's owned it since 1884. Back in the 17th century, the farm was the domain of Magnús Jónsson (a.k.a. Magnús the Stout), a wealthy landowner and Lutheran minister's son renowned for collecting manuscripts of Icelandic and foreign literature. On your visit, you'll encounter the only windmill in Iceland (from the 19th century), and join your hosts for Icelandic refreshments in the family farm's Viktoria House.

Exploring Antarctica's Archipelago

A magical place whose mystical allure fascinates and forever beckons to return...

The magnificent great white continent of Antarctica, the most remote place on Earth, astounds with glacial landscapes and Arctic wildlife that defy description… and you enjoy a rare opportunity to view them up-close with on-board experts who have spent a lifetime studying these natural wonders in extraordinary detail. Due to changing weather and shifting glacial patterns of this remote region, your day-by-day itinerary will vary and may include Zodiac excursions to Antarctic Peninsula islands. Penguins, seals, whales and myriad species of seabirds are often seen on land and at sea; our on-board naturalists can help you identify them during your cruise.
