Baltics Expedition Team

Share the adventure with knowledgeable, engaging companions


The quality of our veteran staff and their companionship is the reason the Lindblad name is known and respected for top-quality expeditions. And now that we are aligned with National Geographic, there is no better team anywhere.

The team composition
Every expedition sails with a veteran expedition leader, a historian, and a naturalist who is also a certified photo instructor. With an extensive background in the region and knowledge of its natural history, human history, archaeology, and mythology, you can rely on our travel guides to enhance your experience of each place you visit.

  • David Barnes

    Expedition Leader
    David studied history at the University of York in England and theology at the University of Wales. Research in the field of religious history (at Cardiff) followed on naturally. He has spent most of his professional life teaching history, most recently in adult education departments within the University of Wales where he has taught a wide variety of courses pertinent to the wider Atlantic world. In 1988, he made his first lecture-tour of the U.S. for the English Speaking Union. He has published extensively on Welsh history and topography–his most recent book being the Companion Guide to Wales (2005)–and is a frequent contributor of articles and reviews to Welsh cultural and literary journals. In the1990s, David was active in the field of international education, traveling worldwide and spending a year in the U.S. (in Atlanta and New York City). He speaks English and French in addition to his native Welsh.
