Since 1896, we’ve honed the art of exploring by sea, and our lineage stretches back to a golden age of pioneering exploration. Today, as then, we invite you to join us.  

Our purpose-built hybrid ships bring you closer to adventure, and our range of activities and excursions allow you to dive deeper into your destination. You’ll find yourself inspired, and your mind illuminated. And you’ll come back home with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the regional customs and cultures, the local way of life, unique wildlife and so much more. Here are some of the reasons people choose to join an HX voyage time and again.
