Dear Traveler,

There are so many different ways to explore the world! I hope you'll take a moment to flip through our online version of the 2012 ENVIRONS nature travel brochure or watch your mailbox for your copy. In those pages, you’ll discover all the ways IE can help you personalize travel to fit your individual style and sense of adventure. You’ll find that discovering even the remote reaches of the wilderness can be easy with International Expeditions.

As you browse through the brochure, you’ll notice just how many ways there are to experience a place like Peru, Africa or India — just a few of the countries we’ve been exploring for 32 years. Once you decide where you want to go, we can help you make your journey the trip of a lifetime!

On IE’s escorted journeys, you’ll have the flexibility to choose between included activities like snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding and early-morning wildlife viewing on many days. Our small group sizes, our small ships and three decades of experience make it possible for us to make spontaneous detours to check out local festivals and events, or for unplanned opportunities to see wildlife. Plus, IE includes a little extra time to explore independently, perhaps shopping, trying out a restaurant you’ve heard about, or spending extra time birding. Or you can always opt out of activities to enjoy your surroundings.

If you’re looking for a more in-depth experience or simply want to make the most of your travel time, IE offers a number of captivating options before and after your journey. You can choose additional days in Machu Picchu, Istanbul, Nepal or other spots around the world, and our Custom Travel Planners are always available to create a personalized journey. We have skilled group advisors who can help you plan a celebration or family reunion — the perfect opportunity to charter our small ships.

Of course, no matter how you decide to explore with IE — on an escorted journey, expedition cruise or completely customized private tour — you’ll always enjoy the luxury of an authentic experience with world-class guides and unpretentious comfort. We assure you, you will be well looked after!

I invite you to explore our favorite places. Then be sure to call our knowledgeable Travel Planners at 800-234-9620 or request our catalog to see how easy IE makes it to discover the planet’s greatest natural and cultural wonders.      

Sincere regards,
   
Maggie Hart
President
