About Our Programs

 

An Extraordinary Legacy of Exploration

National Geographic Expeditions, the travel program of the National Geographic Society, was founded on the same belief in the importance of exploration that distinguishes the Society's 125-year history. Launched in 1999, National Geographic Expeditions now operates hundreds of trips each year, spanning all seven continents and more than 60 destinations.

Since its founding in 1888, the Society has developed incredible resources—from its network of experts, contacts, and Society-sponsored researchers all over the globe, to the top-tier editorial staff of National Geographic and National Geographic Traveler magazines, and the books, maps, and film and television divisions. National Geographic Expeditions taps these resources to create unique and authentic expeditions to fascinating parts of the world.

As part of the National Geographic Travel group, National Geographic Expeditions aims to fulfill the Society's mission to inspire people to care about the planet by providing meaningful opportunities to explore it. Proceeds from all travel programs support the Society’s efforts to increase global understanding through exploration, education and scientific research.


National Geographic Expeditions

National Geographic Expeditions span the globe and are designed to reflect our travelers' broad spectrum of interests. We travel on land, aboard small ships, along classic train routes, and in the comfort of a private jet, and we offer special trips for photographers, students, families, and independent travelers. When you travel with us on an expedition, you'll enjoy boundless opportunities to be surrounded by natural wonders and exotic wildlife, to explore celebrated archaeological sites, to learn about different cultures and share in local traditions. A National Geographic expert or expert team accompanies most expeditions, sharing their knowledge and passion for a region and making each experience enriching and unforgettable.

National Geographic Adventures

National Geographic Adventures are unique, active itineraries for intrepid travelers that feature spectacular places, cultural interaction, and physical challenge. Each adventure has a designated activity level—from Easy to Ultimate Challenge, and you'll have the option to take it easy or push your limits on more difficult excursions throughout most trips. Your group will never be larger than 16 travelers, and you'll explore in the company of top guides, enjoying adventures that are both physically active and culturally rewarding.

National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures

We’ve partnered with G Adventures to offer National Geographic Journeys, small-group trips built on meaningful encounters with people and places, interactions with knowledgeable local guides, and fun! Each itinerary blends hands-on exploration with opportunities to forge human connections with people we meet all around the world. Usually limited to 16 or fewer travelers, National Geographic Journeys tours are accessibly priced and offer more free time and choices—with the structure and security of traveling in a small group.
