Smithsonian Journeys, the travel program of the Smithsonian Institution – the world’s largest museum, education, and research complex – is collaborating with PONANT on a series of
co-branded sailings. Each of the 21 itineraries is led by two Smithsonian Journeys
Experts—whether an art historian, a solar astrophysicist, or an international relations expert—whose
expertise and knowledge will shed new light on a destination and deepen travelers’ immersion in place.
Smithsonian Journeys is a global leader in cultural travel for diverse audiences, offering unique, expert-led trips on all seven continents.
In addition to ocean cruises with PONANT, Smithsonian Journeys offers small-group land journeys, river cruises, active journeys, cultural stays, private jet trips, tailor-made journeys for the independent traveler, and student travel programs.
