Adventurer, traveller, writer, and TV personality; Ben Fogle is a champion for all things nature. Famed for having rowed the Atlantic Ocean, tackled Antarctica on foot, and crossed the Sahara, it’s difficult to find a corner of the globe he hasn’t yet explored. For many of us, he brings the wild ‘to life’, with numerous documentaries, books, and charitable activities bestowing a fount of knowledge upon all his viewers, readers, and listeners.
Ben Fogle has teamed up exclusively with Celebrity Cruises as Global Destination Ambassador, to offer even more choices for an immersive, adrenaline-filled cruise holiday. Ben Fogle’s Great Adventures unique excursion programme is now bigger and better than ever, with guests able to see the world and have more exhilarating experiences. The programme has expanded from just seven tours across Europe, to 18 tours which now include the Caribbean and Alaska too.
Here’s a taster of what’s on offer.
The original Europe programme has long included some great opportunities like;
Now, with even more tours to choose from, there really is something for everyone. For those who want to stay closer to home, step back into the medieval history of Edinburgh with a tour of the Augustinian Abbey, or explore the vast Firth of Forth. Experience the thrill of nature in Iceland as you wander through Reykjavik’s Thingvellir National Park to explore waterfalls, volcanic cracks, and ravines. Ride a glass-domed funicular to a mountaintop in Barcelona and follow the trails back through the treasures of the Spanish countryside, or trek through some of the most scenic parts of Malta.
The Caribbean has long been a dream destination. With glistening white sands, crystal seas, and a tropical breeze, what isn’t there to love. Ben Fogle’s Great Adventures programme has elevated these islands to a brand new level. Excursions include:
It’s one of the best wildlife viewing destinations; home to an abundance of creatures from the adorable sea otter to the grumpy grizzly bear, and all with a stunning backdrop of soaring snowy peaks. Ben Fogle and Celebrity Cruises’ have collaborated to come up with some of the very best excursions, putting you in the heart of Alaska’s icy wilds.
