Explore the world on a small ship cruise with Wild Earth Travel!
In our Summer 2019 Travel Magazine, Wild Earth General Manager Aaron Russ gave us his top 6 small ship voyages for 2019/20. Below are his suggestions, to spark some inspiration for your bucket list.
Across the Top of the World – 15 days from $16,335pp*
This unique expedition crosses the Arctic Circle and includes the isolated and pristine Wrangel and Herald Islands and a significant section of the wild North Eastern Siberian coastline. It is a journey only made possible in recent years by the thawing in the politics of the region and the retreat of summer pack ice in the Chukchi Sea. Our expert expedition team will take you on guided walks, Zodiac cruises and provide lectures to help you better understand and appreciate this unique High Arctic landscape.
Falklands – South Georgia – Solar Eclipse – Antarctica – 20 days from $24,354pp*
Don’t miss the chance to see one of Earth’s most wondrous cosmic events in one of Earth’s most fantastic places! An Antarctica viewing of the total solar eclipse is expected December 4, 2021. Though total solar eclipses occur roughly every 18 months, they can only be properly seen along a few key path locations. And what better location than one of the wildest and least-known places on the planet? Three ships, 19 nights, and one very famous cosmic event.
