Lindblad Expeditions (www.expeditions.com), a pioneer in small ship adventures, has announced that it is partnering with Jeopardy! to celebrate the popular television quiz show’s 25th season. The promotion will send 25 winners to the Galápagos Islands for an adventure-filled week with Lindblad Expeditions aboard the National Geographic Endeavour. Winners will have the opportunity to explore the “Land of Darwin” with an up-close exploration of the island’s famous wildlife, as all of Lindblad’s expeditions utilize nimble Zodiacs and kayaks to take guests onto the volcanic shores and pristine beaches of the archipelago.
The sweepstakes, which runs from March 30th to May 1st, is designed as an online entry promotion in which Jeopardy! viewers watch the show and enter to win the 10 day/9 night voyage to the Galápagos Islands. One new winner will be chosen each weekday during the contest period. All sweepstakes winners will travel together, with celebrity host Alex Trebek, on a scheduled excursion from October 16th to October 25th, 2009.
This celebratory promotion is an outgrowth of a multi-year collaborative relationship between Jeopardy! and Lindblad Expeditions. The two companies have worked together to bring images from varied global locations to Jeopardy! viewers. In 2005 and 2008, Lindblad Expeditions hosted the Jeopardy! Clue Crew on board the National Geographic Endeavour resulting in the creation of numerous video “clues”, which showcased sights and sounds filmed on the ground in Western Europe and the Baltic Sea region.
