About The National Geographic Difference
Over the past 133 years, we've sent our scientists, storytellers, and adventurers across continents and into remote cultures, down to the oceans' depths and up the highest mountains in an effort to better understand our planet. National Geographic Expeditions grew from this legacy as a way to invite others to explore—to encounter the wonders of the world up close and in depth, and to be transformed by the experience.
Knowledge: Let Our Experts Guide You
You deepen your understanding of the world when you travel with National Geographic—whether you're venturing to one of Iceland’s largest glaciers with a glaciologist or photographing Christmas markets along the Danube with a seasoned National Geographic photographer. From the scientists, photographers, and explorers who accompany our trips to the local guides and experts we meet in the field, you’ll be surrounded by people who are steeped in knowledge and insight about the places we go. And they’re passionate about sharing that knowledge with you.
Access: Closer than You’ve Ever Imagined
We have always gone further: pioneering new paths in science and exploration, telling the stories of remote cultures, and inspiring innovators. We open doors around the globe so that you can go behind the scenes to get a close-up view of work that's helping to illuminate and protect the world's treasures, from discoveries about meteorites to research on Ice Age cave art in Spain. You'll enjoy access to little-known sites, events, and local experts.
