Explora Journeys Reveals Autumn/Winter 2024-25 Itineraries for Explora I

Explora Journeys has unveiled its lineup of voyages for Explora I for the autumn and winter 2024 - 2025, which are now open for booking.

Featuring 23 journeys and 2 grand journeys between SEP 2024 and APR 2025, the itineraries will encompass 73 destinations across 24 countries. Eight of them will be a first for Explora Journeys, including Macapá, Alter-do-Chaõ and Manaus in the Amazon, and the Devil’s Island in French Guiana.

The collection of journeys emphasizes a slower pace and the opportunity to linger longer at each destination, including overnight stays. Meanwhile, Explora Journeys says it will maintain the "highest standards in sustainable, responsible practices are rigorously maintained to ensure minimal impact on nature and local communities."

Highlights include an 8-night Journey to Trailing Whales and Falling Leaves, sailing from New York City on 8OCT, 2024 for Boston, Portland and Halifax, the Whale Corridors and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, finishing in Quebec City.

The journey offers guests the opportunity to experience forest-lined clifftops ablaze with fiery autumn colours, secluded sandy bays, candy-striped lighthouses, world-famous lobster shacks, and the laidback spirit of authentic harbour towns. The journey continues into the waters of New England, where the cold Labrador Current meets the warm Gulf Stream, and blue, beluga and minke whales gather in the mineral-rich sea.

In a first for Explora Journeys, Explora I will offer journeys up the Amazon River and into the Brazilian rainforest, complete with torchlit kayak tours and forest trails to hidden tribal villages. In Manaus, guests will witness the confluence of the rivers, where the inky Rio Negro joins the powerful Rio Solimoes; and in Santarem, where the Amazon meets the crystal-clear waters of the Tapajos.

A Journey into Wild and Wonderful Amazonia will depart Bridgetown, Barbados, on 22NOV, 2024, sailing to French Guiana’s Devil’s Island before heading to Macapá, Alter-do-Chaõ and Manaus in Brazil. A Journey to the Meeting Waters on the Almighty Amazon will set off on 29NOV, 2024, travelling up the Amazon to Macapá and Bequia before returning to Bridgetown.

A Journey of Tantalising Transatlantic Adventures sails on 03APR, 2025 from Bridgetown on a 14-night transatlantic crossing. Guests enjoy leisurely days at sea before exploring Cape Verde, the 10-island Creole-Portuguese archipelago, with its volcanic landscapes and beautiful beaches. The ship will stop to take in the natural attractions of the Canary Islands, followed by Madeira, known as ‘the flower island’, before arriving in Lisbon on 18APR, 2025.

EXLORA I’s grand journeys, A Grand Journey to Amazonia & Tropical Isles (28 nights) and A Grand Transatlantic Odyssey in the Atlantic (32 nights), give guests the opportunity to explore the spirit of the unforgettable destinations along the routes, as they travel the Caribbean, the Amazon and the vastness of the ocean beyond.
