King Gustavus Adolphus had spared no expense in building what was to be one of the most powerful warships of its day, carrying more than 60 cannons on two gun decks and decorated with exquisite sculptures of mythic gods and mermaids.

Sadly, the Vasa sank on its maiden voyage not far from the Stockholm harbor. More than 300 years later, its...

For over 25 years, Zegrahm has taken inquisitive guests to the ends of the Earth. One of the most revered vessels in our fleet during this quarter-century of exploration was Kapitan Khlebnikov, the 110-guest, polar-class icebreaker.

This powerful ship (think: 24,000 horsepower engine and advanced ice-breaking technology) was originally designed to escort scientists and miners in Northern Siberia, but was converted to a passenger ship in 1990. She not only takes explorers to...

In 2016 and 2017, we are really excited to fulfill both requirements by exploring both the...

The...

We recently developed a three-week custom itinerary of extraordinary proportions throughout Cameroon and Congo for an adventurous solo traveler. Beginning with 15 stops in northern and southern Cameroon, the first portion of the itinerary focused solely on the culture of the country, including the artwork, architecture, agricultural techniques, and the role of royalty, community, family, and colonialism in society. This traveler concluded her time in central-western Africa with gorilla ...
