This 6-day cruise aboard the M/V Misty Fjord is a true expedition-style itinerary with no set routes. The expedition is ideal for travelers seeking a higher level of activity, with more time spent in remote areas. The vessel is anchored or moored on most nights of the journey, which presents additional opportunities for kayak paddles and other active excursions. Your knowledgeable captain and shore-side management will determine the week’s best route based on wildlife migrations and patterns, guest interests, and weather.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
