National Geographic Endeavour for Families

Editor Rating
Families
3.0
Unlike other expedition companies, Lindblad has seen strong growth in family travel and welcomes children on any of its expeditions. The company realizes that expeditions should be fun, and what kid wouldn't enjoy sitting with penguins or going for a Zodiac ride through the ice?

While a majority comes during the holidays and summers, of course, families are welcome year round. There are neither special facilities for children nor official organized activities, but we found early teenage kids having a grand time in Antarctica with the wildlife, the kayaks and the naturalists. The staff is very supportive of children that take an interest in what they're seeing, and an expedition can be a great learning opportunity (as well as great family bonding.) As long as they don't have to be glued to their iPods every minute and can appreciate their surroundings, they'll have a great time.

Editor's note: Children under 18 get $500 off their fare.
