Join our President & CEO Sven Lindblad for a live Hangout on Wednesday, June 8!
Sven was born in Switzerland and traveled extensively with his father, renowned adventure-travel pioneer Lars-Eric Lindblad. In 1979, Sven launched Special Expeditions (now Lindblad Expeditions), an innovative travel company offering marine-focused expeditions aboard small ships. In 2004, he formed an alliance with National Geographic that combines the strengths of these two pioneers in global exploration with the goal of further inspiring the world through expedition travel. In May 2006, Sven received international recognition for his distinctive and successful model of tourism in a ceremony hosted by HRH, Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg. He also had a newly discovered endemic species of moth in the Galápagos Islands, Undulambia lindbladi, named in honor of his conservation work in the archipelago. The United Nations Environment Programme also recognized Lindblad’s accomplishments, naming him to their Global 500 roll of honor. An avid photographer, Lindblad’s photography has appeared in Smithsonian and National Geographic magazines.
