Cultures & Communities
One of the great joys of travel is meeting the locals, and on an expedition cruise you will often have the opportunity to visit communities and meet with peoples who have had very little contact with the outside world. In Papua New Guinea there are over 800 different tribal dialects to discover, and during Arctic expeditions learn about the lifestyles of the Inuit people and how they carry on fishing traditions
dating back thousands of years. The opportunity to spend time with the local custodians, whether they be indigenous Australian, Islander or Amazonian adds greater context and a new dimension to your travels. Many of these expeditions will have a resident anthropologist as part of the expedition team and they will be more than happy to share their knowledge with you.
