Experience adventurer Ben Fogle’s walk on the wild side with Celebrity Cruises

Scale a volcano, race a yacht or explore the rainforest are just some of Celebrity Cruises’ new range of adrenaline-charged experiences designed in collaboration with world-renowned adventurer Ben Fogle.

Ben Fogle Celebrity adventuresThe new excursions expand on Fogle’s Great Adventures excursion series currently offered in Europe and the Middle East.

This programme enables guests to explore destinations through the eyes of a local; they can experience culture, history, famous sights, wildlife and adventure at ports of calls throughout Europe, and now the Caribbean and Alaska as well.

“We’re exceptionally excited to work with Ben Fogle and extend his series of Great Adventures from the seven popular tours in Europe and the Middle East to 18 tours around the world,” said Jo Rzymowska, Celebrity’s managing director for UK and Ireland.

“The programme has been a real guest favourite and these exhilarating new additions offer exclusive excursions in some of the world’s most incredible destinations.”

Fogle, recently appointed Celebrity Cruises Global Destination Ambassador, has designed these new exhilarating journeys across the Caribbean and Alaska for the first time, as well as new additions in Europe.

“I’m so excited to share some of my favourite destinations as part of the new series of Great Adventures,” said Fogle. “My new role allows me to indulge my shared passion with Celebrity Cruises of opening up the world with incredible experiences. Some are not for the faint-hearted, such as climbing a volcano to its peak 3,792ft above sea level, but the rainforest sights and sounds on the way up and views at the top are well worth the ascent.”

His global travels have been the inspiration of these 11 new and inspiring activities in some of the planet’s most awe-inspiring locales, including:

  • Ocean Yacht Racing in Antigua – Indulge that competitive spirit and work the winches, trim the main sail or even take the helm. Or simply sit back and enjoy the incredible views
  • Mount Liamuiga Volcano Hike in St Kitts – Climb through the tropical rainforest to the rim of the dormant volcano’s crater. Once at the peak enjoy the stunning panoramic views, even over to neighbouring islands on a clear day
  • Icy Strait Point Kayak Adventure in Alaska – Paddle among the raw beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, exploring remote bays and spotting the local wildlife including sea lions, eagles and even brown bears on the shore
