Zegrahm Expeditions Explores Cuba by Land and Sea
Expedition Travel Company Offers Two Unique Ways to See Cuba in 2016 and 2017

Seattle, WA (April 26, 2016) – Zegrahm Expeditions, the world leader in small-ship cruising and overland adventures, is thrilled to offer two unique ways for adventure travelers to experience Cuba in the coming year. By land, the company offers an immersive 11-day overland adventure or by small ship, guests can nearly circumnavigate the island nation on a 17-day expedition cruise.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to explore this incredible destination that has been virtually off-limits to American travelers during our 25-plus year history,” says Van Perry, Zegrahm President. “By offering two options for exploration, we can truly showcase all the very best cultural and natural highlights of Cuba.”

Zegrahm’s overland adventure, The Heart of Cuba, departs October 13 and November 3, 2016, and February 9, 2017. Guests will 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. Priced from $8,780 per person.

Cuba Under Sail departs March 29, 2017, and is aboard Le Ponant, the beautiful, 56-guest sailing ship. Guests will nearly circumnavigate the island, beginning in Havana and cruising around the east side to Cienfuegos where they disembark and enjoy a two-night stay in Playa Larga and explore the Caribbean’s largest and best-preserved wetlands. This expedition offers ample opportunities to snorkel and dive among crystal-clear waters and pristine coral reefs, plus guests can explore the historic, cultural capital of Santiago de Cuba. Priced from $17,580 per person.
