Expert-Led Cruises

Join one of our expert-led, exclusive small boat charters to destinations including Galapagos, Canada and Turkey.

There’s nothing we like more than to ‘throw off the bowlines and sail away from the safe harbour’ on the perfect small-ship with an outstanding expedition guide and crew.

We hand pick the ships we work with, prioritising smaller vessels with a high ratio of guides and crew to passengers. Smaller ships not only have a lighter footprint but also enable us to access the more remote and secluded places on the map. Our charters are all exclusive to Steppes Travels’ clients and we have carefully chosen our experts based on their personal insight, knowledge, companionship and influence.

Current hosts on board our exclusive charters include conservationist, Jonathan Green and wildlife photographer, Paul Goldstein.
