Galápagos: Wildlife Wonderland

Tauck $5990 8 Details


You and your family have an opportunity to discover wildlife found nowhere else in the world with Tauck and BBC Earth! Join us for an Earth Journeys family travel experience highlighted by BBC Earth on-tour films and a specialist wildlife filming kit. Set sail for amazing tropical islands, truly a land that time forgot, on Tauck Bridges' family Galápagos tour that features a four-night cruise aboard Santa Cruz II. Have you ever seen birds wearing bright red or blue "shoes"? You will during this eco-cruise because the Galápagos is one of their favorite places to kick up their heels. How about prehistoric-looking iguanas? Or penguins and sea lions so friendly that they might swim right alongside you in brilliant blue water? Even the crabs are different here, with their bright red and yellow shells that provide quite a contrast to the black-lava rocks of these volcanic islands. Parabolic microphones bring the voices of nature to your ears... learn from Galápagos naturalists who travel with you... take walks on lava terrains... travel ashore via pangas... swim and snorkel... and spend two nights in colonial Quito.

Cruising The Galápagos Islands

Tauck $6990 9 Details


Join us on a Galápagos cruise that is enriching and informative, adventurous and in-depth. Throughout the archipelago, your Galápagos cruise Earth Journeys experience features custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and the use of field equipment when the opportunity arises, such as thermal imaging cameras to see what is living in underwater tidal pools. Enjoy a six-night Galápagos cruise aboard one of the finest expeditionary-style yachts in the region, Isabela II - with no more than 40 Tauck guests - and experience amazing wildlife viewing and an opportunity to get up-close to creatures such as blue-footed boobies, sea lions, iguanas and penguins. Our Galápagos cruise itinerary is flexible, allowing the ship to access many remote islands, choosing beaches that are full of wildlife for shore excursions with our expert naturalists. Landings are made in a panga, a Zodiac-style raft. Dry landings mean stepping from the panga onto rocks or a dock - with the helpful hand of a Tauck naturalist; wet landings require stepping into knee-deep water from the panga, then wading ashore onto a sandy beach.

Arctic Allure: Spitsbergen And The Midnight Sun

Tauck $10990 10 Details


NEW for 2019! An Earth Journey, created with BBC Earth... This 10-day trip - including a 7-night expedition cruise north of Norway in the wildlife capital of the Arctic - explores a remote archipelago of glaciers, fjords, and ice floes, revered for its silent majesty by nature lovers in the know. From Oslo, fly to Spitsbergen's main settlement, Longyearbyen, and embark on a 7-night Arctic Ocean cruise aboard Le Boreal. Go where the weather and movement of wildlife tell you to go, seeking out tiny Svalbard reindeer, polar bears, walrus colonies, whales, Arctic foxes, puffins, and more. A wildlife filmmaker from BBC Earth and expedition naturalists accompany you onboard ship and ashore throughout your voyage in the land of the Midnight Sun, where daylight never ends. Come ashore by Zodiac with your naturalist guides and expedition leaders for rocky treks through this altogether otherworldly landscape of jagged mountains, steep-sided valleys, sheer cliffs, and crackling, calving glaciers. You'll be far above the Arctic Circle - the closest you can get to the North Pole! Onboard ship at night, enjoy talks, informal conversations with your expedition guides, exclusive BBC Earth films, and the camaraderie that only Arctic explorers can share. Book early - one trip only in 2019!

Treasures Of The Aegean

Tauck $7990 10 Details


Your Greek island cruise aboard Wind Star in the Aegean Sea blends ancient with modern in a kaleidoscope of discoveries both mythic and epic... Spend two nights at a fabulous hotel in the heart of Athens where you'll go back in time to ancient Greece, seeing antiquities that reflect its glory at the height of its power... then sail to fabulous destinations steeped in legend, lore and sunshine and enjoy lovely sunsets over the Aegean Sea. Explore Greek Islands including Mykonos, playground of the rich and famous... Delos, holiest of all Greek sanctuaries... Santorini, eye-candy perfect with its blue-domed buildings and amazing views... Patmos, whose cultural treasures have attracted pilgrims for centuries... and Monemvasia, "the Gibraltar of the East"... plus Ephesus in Turkey, the famous remains of an ancient Greco-Roman city.

Venice & The Dalmatian Coast

Tauck $7990 10 Details


Poets, Authors, Painters & You
What's not to inspire creativity along the Dalmatian Coast? Sun-drenched beaches on idyllic islands, outdoor cafés with magnificent food, medieval stone walls surrounding a cultural cornucopia, lush vineyards fanned by warm breezes from the Adriatic, hidden ports where yachts and fishing boats coexist... The Dalmatian Coast is an epic crossroad between Europe and Asia Minor, a storyteller's paradise - eclipsed only, perhaps, by your first three days in the heart of romantic Venice...

Sicily, The Amalfi Coast & Rome - Northbound

Tauck $8990 11 Details


Islands at the tip of Italy's boot... They've been conquered in turn by different invaders, with some, like Malta and Sicily, boasting a history of occupation that dates back thousands of years. Once you see the sensational seaside views from the cliff-top, Maltese city of Mdina, walled since medieval times, you'll discover why so many visitors were eager to claim this island gem for their own. Sicily, inhabited since the Ice Age, was a favorite trophy for the Greeks in the 5th and 6th centuries BC, followed in turn by a succession of rulers, including the Romans, the Vandals, the Arabs, the Normans, the Swabians, the House of Aragon and the Bourbons. The landscapes on this large Mediterranean island have proven to be fertile ground for vineyards, citrus groves, almond and cherry trees - and beaches. While its conquerors had their own reasons for turning Sicily into one of their colonies, travelers today revel in the archaeological treasures they left behind. You'll see an ancient Greek theatre and temple in Siracusa, a Roman renovation in Taormina, an open-air Arab casbah in Palermo, and Punic and Norman fortifications in medieval Erice - mingling with magnificent frescoed duomos, grand piazzas, Baroque balconies and terraced towns that speak volumes about Sicilian life, past and present.

Treasures Of The Mediterranean - Southbound

Tauck $8290 11 Details


Iconic places in the sun...
Whitewashed villages clinging to cliffs high above the sea... medieval villas along the Amalfi Coast with views so breathtaking, they've inspired the work of writers, artists and composers for generations... rumbling volcanoes putting on a fiery nighttime show as you sail past... tiny islands dotted with weathered traces of temples and theatres that today only hint at the power of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations that built them... and hidden coves that appear so pristine that you'll swear you're among the first group of travelers ever to lay eyes or set foot on them. This is the Mediterranean as you've always dreamed it should be, explored aboard a sailing ship small enough to reach those treasures that larger vessels overlook...
