National Geographic Expeditions: Travel Weekly

An Extraordinary Legacy of Exploration

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, spanning all seven continents and more than 80 destinations.

Our Signature Land Expeditions are premium, fully planned itineraries that provide an enriching, in-depth look at the history, culture, and natural heritage of a destination. Each is accompanied by a National Geographic Expert who offers insights on the places we explore through fascinating presentations and informal discussions.

Snow-dusted mountains and coral reefs, sweeping savannas and pristine national parks: get immersed in the natural world on our trips. Head into the wilderness with seasoned experts—biologists, naturalists, and explorers—to experience majestic landscapes and incredible wildlife. Discover nature’s drama amid the glacial landscapes of Iceland, the majestic fjords of New Zealand, the great apes of Uganda and Rwanda, and much more. 

Encounter the glorious vestiges of ancient empires and lost civilizations, exploring alongside our knowledgeable guides and National Geographic archaeologists. Climb Central America’s soaring Maya temples, step into a world of myths and legends amid the iconic ruins of Greece, gaze into the eyes of Easter Island’s mysterious moai statues, explore the magnificent Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, and much more. 

National Geographic offers a variety of ways to improve your photography skills with the guidance of a National Geographic Photography Expert. All of our photography programs are designed for amateur photographers of all levels interested in improving their skills.
