Your Trip Type

How do you like to travel? Are you an intrepid explorer by day, but want luxurious bedding and a hot shower at night? You’re the ideal candidate for an expedition cruise to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal. Are you interested in stunning architecture? You'll be fascinated by the "Pink City" of Jaipur (pictured above) on the India by Rail Photography Expedition. Have you daydreamed about trekking with gorillas and encountering chimpanzees in Rwanda? Set off on a once-in-a-lifetime journey where you can see primates in their habitat and learn about ongoing conservation projects. Taking the family? Bring them far away from their comfort zone with a 13-day Southeast Asia Family Journey from Vietnam to Cambodia.

Visit active conservation sites

Special Access

National Geographic has been studying the wonders of the world from a close-up perspective for more than 130 years. Thanks to its relationships with scientists and museums worldwide, the National Geographic brand opens doors in the most popular tourist areas. Every year, the National Geographic Society awards over 575 grants to scientists, naturalists and visionaries around the globe. On a National Geographic Expedition, you get special access to those people and places, including active research sites. Go behind the scenes with archaeologists and researchers as they conserve and protect some of Earth’s most beloved cultural and natural treasures. Treat yourself to an enriching vacation with specialists who are steeped in knowledge and insights that will open your eyes and delight your spirit.
