Zegrahm Expeditions: Top Guides with a Unique Take on Travel

SEATTLE, Wash.— ZEGRAHM EXPEDITIONS was founded in 1990 by a group of veteran adventure travel leaders for one clear reason: to offer travelers the most intriguing expeditions in our world. This ethos was recognized by National Geographic Adventure magazine for the second consecutive year, naming Zegrahm & Eco Expeditions as one of the 2009 Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth.

Honored with top scores in the list of Adventure Specialists for their unique selection of Frontier Adventure Cruises, the magazine’s description reads “Venture to the ends of the Earth with Zegrahm. The 19-year-old outfitter specializes in voyages to far-flung biodiversity hot spots like the South Pacific's Rangiroa atoll (red-footed booby central) and the penguin-filled South Georgia Islands.” The article describes their list of Adventure Specialists as Top Guides with a Unique Take on Travel, a description that almost seems tailored for Zegrahm when you consider this:

  • Zegrahm believes that what sets them apart is the top-notch leader and lecture team on every expedition. Naturalists, ornithologists, marine biologists, archaeologists, and historians enlighten, entertain, and share their passion for discovery. The lecture team is not only well informed but personable, their stories and travel company enriching the journey beyond measure.
  • With company owners leading the expeditions, they remain alongside their travelers every step of the way, constantly seeking the best experiences possible. Daily schedules remain flexible and subject to change so that each wildlife sighting or chance cultural encounter is fully appreciated.
  • Their itineraries include islands, shores, and ports rarely visited by travelers. Zegrahm chooses destinations because they are off the radar, not avoiding them due to lack of typical tourist infrastructure. Their motto: the less visited the better. For example, their Wild Alaska voyages are a paradigm of remote, difficult to reach island destinations in the Bering Sea, including the Pribilof and Aleutian Islands. Daily activities in this northern realm offer travelers dramatic volcanic scenery coupled with bird and wildlife encounters few will ever experience.

We travel for a variety of reasons, to explore new lands, meet people of different cultures, learn, feel, and reconnect. Travel is that unique elixir that provides us with a better understanding of ourselves, the wonders of our planet, and the challenges we face on the environmental frontlines. Next time you set out to discover the unimagined marvels that fill planet Earth, explore with a company that shares these ideals.
