Here are the destinations we visit:

Antarctica

High atop any adventure-seeking traveler’s bucket list is Antarctica for its plethora of once-in-a-lifetime adventure travel experiences: cruising among sparkling icebergs with a brilliant blue sky backdrop, meeting an elephant seal pup face to face, visiting a scientific research station at the bottom of the world, photographing thousands upon thousands of penguins. 

A hallmark of Zeghram’s Antarctica expeditions is the ability to land by Zodiac wherever nature and curiosity dictate. We travel during the austral summer, making for longer daylight hours and therefore, more landings per day on remote shores. In fact, since we travel south via a small-expedition ship, we enable our travelers to actually set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula, a feat the larger cruise ships simply can’t accomplish. Plus, our veteran leaders and renowned lecturers will provide incredible insight into the region, its wildlife, and its history.

Here are the destinations we visit:

Asia & India

Asia and India offer travelers an untold number of natural and cultural experiences—and our expeditions take you to some of the least-visited and newest emerging destinations in the world. Whether by small ship, riverboat, train, or overland, you’ll be steeped in the lore of each location, and introduced to its most marvelous secrets.

In addition to several signature itineraries, in 2016 Zegrahm will offer five exciting new expeditions. From observing life along the Mekong River by riverboat or traversing the ancient Silk Road by rail to overland adventures through Central India, Japan, Tibet and Nepal, you’ll be privy to adventures that few Westerners have ever experienced.

Here are the destinations we visit:

Australia & the South Pacific

Scattered across the largest ocean basin on earth, the islands of the South Pacific have wooed adventurers and explorers for centuries. And it’s no wonder why—these remote paradises offer unparalleled beauty; a bounty of exotic flora, birds, and wildlife; some of the world’s most pristine marine environments; and communities where time-honored traditions remain unchanged. From exploring the island gems of Polynesia or encountering saltwater crocodiles in Australia’s Kimberley to entering the eerie world of the Asmat in Indonesia or greeting the smiling faces of Melanesia’s many island communities, Zegrahm's adventures to this region of the world always receive rave reviews.

Here are the destinations we visit:

Central & South America

With a wide variety of climates and biomes, Central and South America are fascinating destinations for expedition travel. For this reason, those with a thirst for outdoor pursuits, knowledge of new cultures, and up-close encounters with interesting wildlife will relish our small-ship cruises and overland adventures.

Here are the destinations we visit:

Europe

We invite you to take a fresh look at Europe and embark on one of four incredible journeys that will turn your view of the Continent from well-trodden to welloff- the-beaten-path. We realize you may have visited Europe a number of times, but have you discovered the hidden coastal gems of Western Europe by small ship or unveiled the mystique of Eastern Turkey on an overland adventure? Why not circle the entire Black Sea, visiting six amazing countries along the way, or soak up the stunning scenery and fascinating history of the sun-drenched Adriatic?

Here are the destinations we visit:

Far North & the Arctic

Exploring the Arctic is, in many ways, unimaginable. To travel to what ancient geographers termed ultima Thule (“farthest land”)—and in luxury, no less—is a feat seemingly reserved for the hardiest adventurers among us. And yet, Zegrahm’s Arctic expeditions afford rare opportunities to view Arctic wildlife, seabirds, whales, and polar bears; to meet indigenous peoples who sustain a living at the ends of the Earth; and to explore lands that very few have ever stepped foot on—it’s the top of the world, waiting for you.
