Seabourn has rolled out several new shore excursions it plans to offer this year. These land tours include wellness themed visits in Alaska and Quebec, educational stops at historic towns in Italy and Spain and a three-day stay at a safari lodge in South Africa.

Taku Glacier Lodge, Glacier Seaplane Discovery & Yoga: A Mindful Living Tour

Available on all 2019 Alaska sailings, the Taku Glacier Lodge trip has been designed as an extension of the onboard Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil program. Participants take a de Havilland seaplane from Juneau, flying over fly glaciers to Taku Glacier Lodge. Dating back to 1923, the wilderness lodge sits along the Taku River. Guests dine on grilled wild Alaska salmon, join a certified yoga instructor for a session surrounded by the blue-hued glacier and take a guided interpretive nature walk.

The Historical, Forward-Looking Augustine Monastery: A Mindful Living Tour

Another extension of the onboard Spa & Wellness with Dr. Andrew Weil program, this Quebec-based excursion will be available on Seabourn Quest’s August 6 and 30, September 10 and 21 and October 3, 14 and 25 sailings. Travelers visit the historic Le Monastère des Augustines where they can participate in an interactive conference on medicinal herbs and teas and attend a concert with commentary from the Augustinian choir. Other sights in this outing include Dufferin Terrace where Samuel de Champlain built his fort in 1620, the St. Lawrence River and the Château Frontenac Hotel.

Bocelli's Favorite Things & Seaside Experience

On this small-group tour out of Livorno, Italy, guests explore the town of Lucca, learning about its history and culture, as well as the life and career of opera composer Giacomo Puccini. Guests see the Piazza dell’Anfiteatro, the Church of San Michele in Foro and the City Wall of Lucca. At Bocelli Aplemare Beach, participants receive a four-course lunch and taste wines from the Bocelli family farmhouse in Tuscany.
