National Geographic Expeditions offer immersive travel experiences accompanied by their experts and guides

As Indian travellers are looking for rich travel experiences in a burgeoning luxury travel industry, National Geographic is looking to cater to such needs. The 131-year-old iconic brand has recently launched its global expeditions business in India called National Geographic Expeditions. Urging people to gather authentic experiences and explore the unknown, these will help Indian travellers gain access to people and places, get enriched by the knowledge of their experts and guides. 

National Geographic Expeditions was founded to support the National Geographic Society’s 131-year mission to inspire people to care about the planet by providing meaningful opportunities to explore it. Designed especially for HNIs, each expedition invites travellers to explore and encounter the wonders of the world up close, in depth, right at the source, and be transformed by the experience.

Discover the Antarctic on a polar expedition cruise to the heart of the icy realm that is the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea. 

Embark on an unforgettable 11-day voyage and succumb to the enchantment of the breathtaking landscapes inhabited by astonishing wildlife. From moors scattered with moss and lichen, white-sand beaches and turquoise waters in the Falkland Islands to glaciers and snow-capped mountains in the South Orkney Islands, their Antarctica itinerary has it all. You get to experience this exceptional trip and discover an untamed world and overwhelming sight of incredible fauna and wildlife such as penguins, seals, whales, and albatrosses.

On the borders of inhabited lands, at high northern latitudes, where the sun merely brushes the horizon during the short austral summer, sail to Spitsbergen to encounter the lord of the sea ice: the polar bear. 

With roughly 80 per cent of its surface covered in ice, Greenland is a living laboratory of geologic forces — a place where enormous icebergs drift through glittering fjords and Inuit communities carve out an intrepid lifestyle amid a wilderness of rock and ice. 

Embark on a globe-trotting expedition featuring 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites, from Easter Island to the Great Barrier Reef. Alongside a team of National Geographic experts in the field of marine biology, anthropology, archaeology, and paleontology, the expedition will help you gain insight into local cultures.

An absolute treat for photography enthusiasts who can learn how best to work with movement and light as they get to frame dazzling herds of zebra, lolling lions, and a colourful spectrum of birds. ST
