Earth Journeys Created by Tauck and BBC Earth

Amazing natural history travel experiences are true hallmarks of Tauck’s Earth Journeys, created in partnership with BBC Earth – including several Tauck Small Ship Cruises. We’ve spent years working closely together with our BBC travel partners – the natural history experts at BBC Earth – to develop Earth Journeys, allowing you to experience their stories first-hand in innovative ways. Join us… for landings by Zodiac on ice-covered islands off the Antarctic Peninsula, where penguins, seals and whales thrive… throughout the Galápagos Archipelago, home to amazing wildlife found nowhere else on Earth… among the fjordlike coastlines and geothermal wonders of Iceland... and in tropical rainforests along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the tiny country with the richest biodiversity in the world.

Highlights of Every Earth Journey

  • Exclusive on-tour film vignettes made for Tauck by BBC Earth filmmakers in the traditional style of BBC Earth’s award-winning documentaries; they inform and inspire with personal perspectives, stories, and insights filled with humor and heart. in the world.
  • Field equipment "gadgets" that vary from tour to tour and are operated by your Tauck Director as the opportunity arises; the gadgets might include FLIR® thermal imaging cameras that capture the nocturnal world… long-distance microphones that let you hear sounds more than a mile away… underwater cameras… or camera traps providing images not seen in daylight... and are an integral part of our BBC tours.
  • Educational touches provided by local experts or naturalists and your Tauck Director (due to their filming schedules, BBC Earth natural history filmmakers are not able to travel on Earth Journeys departures).
