New Trips

It can take us up to 5 years to scout a destination and develop one of our our exclusive itineraries. We don't repackage other company's trips. Wildlife expert Josh Cohen, Wild Planet's founder, scouts each destination extensively to determine the best activities to take advantage of local wildlife activity patterns and behaviors, best times of day for wildlife viewing, and best methods that will result in the highest possible volume of wildlife sightings, as well as the best chances of rare and endangered animal sightings. Special arrangements are then made in order to place travelers at the right place, at the right time. This is what we mean by "going the extra mile" to put you in front of the most wildlife possible! Below are a selection of our newest itineraries. These are still tested itineraries - we usually run exploratories and custom trips prior to offering scheduled departures to any destination.

Antarctica - Ultimate Wildlife Cruise–20 Day South Georgia & Falkland Islands MS Hebridean Sky

The pack ice begins to break up, and the landscape is at its most pristine, with plenty of fresh snow. It’s mating season for the penguins and other birds. Adélie, Chinstrap, and Gentoo penguins and other seabirds return to their breeding sites. You’re likely to witness courtship displays, nest building, and egg tending. In South Georgia, Elephant Seals and Fur Seals are mating, and King Penguins are laying their eggs. Parents can be seen “carrying” eggs on their feet so that one parent can shuffle around the colony while the other adult goes out to sea to feed. This is a fantastic time for photography, as the start of summer brings with it amazing sunsets and ever-changing cloud formations. This is also the time when albatross, marine fulmars, and petrels adorn the Southern Ocean, and the blue-eyed shags return to the region. Learn More>
