Zegrahm Expeditions Announces Additional Cuba Departure in 2016
11-Day Expedition Offers a Great Mix of Culture and Natural History for Adventure Travelers

Seattle, WA (August 25, 2015) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, is thrilled to announce an additional departure to its 2016 schedule: The Heart of Cuba. After quickly selling out two departures in January and February, Zegrahm is adding a third Cuban adventure to its line-up, departing November 3, 2016, to help meet the demand for this popular destination.

Guests will travel with Zegrahm cofounder, Jack Grove, and explore the cultural and natural wonders of the country, from the famed Buena Vista Social Club to the Zapata Wetlands, home to 171 species of birds and 31 species of reptiles. Travelers will also have the chance to meet friendly locals while savoring the traditional cuisine; stroll through the streets of historic Havana, walking among the colonial architecture and classic American cars; and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Trinidad and the Valley of the Sugar Mills, the historic center of Cuba’s sugar industry.

“We are really delighted to be adding a third Cuba departure in 2016,” says Zegrahm President, Edwin Blythe. “Our 2015 expedition—a first for Zegrahm—received rave reviews. Guests commented on how knowledgeable the local guides were, and just how much they loved this beautiful and friendly country, all of them eager to return.”

This expedition takes place November 3 - 13, 2016 and is priced from $8,780 per person. It is made possible through Zegrahm’s partnership with its sister company, International Expeditions, which is authorized under general and specific licenses to operate, engage, organize, and conduct people-to-people travel to Cuba that engages participants in meaningful interactions with individuals in Cuba.
