The National Geographic Difference

What Travel Advisors Need to Know

National Geographic Expeditions are unlike any other trips, offering endless opportunities for unforgettable, immersive travel experiences.

National Geographic Expeditions was founded on the same belief in the importance of exploration that distinguishes the National Geographic Society’s 130-year history. Launched in 1999, National Geographic Expeditions now operates hundreds of trips each year, with options in all seven continents and more than 80 destinations. 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.

The ‘Why’

Why choose National Geographic Expeditions? The better question is, why not?

When your clients travel with us on an expedition, they’ll enjoy boundless opportunities to be surrounded by natural wonders and exotic wildlife, explore celebrated archeological sites, 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.

Just as important, National Geographic Expeditions delivers—on expertise, immersion, and meaning. Clients will learn from National Geographic experts, satisfying their curiosity and appetite for real knowledge about all aspects of the destination they visit. They’ll enjoy unprecedented access to exclusive experiences—with big and small details alike managed so they can engage in learning and exploring. Finally, the purchase price of their trip has purpose, with a portion of National Geographic Expeditions’ proceeds allocated to the National Geographic Society to fund explorers around the world.
