National Geographic Introduces New Family Journeys

National Geographic is thrilled to announce the arrival of National Geographic Family Journeys, a new line of small-group trips offered in partnership with G Adventures!

Designed to inspire parents and kids to explore the world together in a meaningful way, these trips offer enriching, hands-on activities that tap into National Geographic’s storied legacy of exploration. Families will enjoy the freedom to discover their destination and plenty of quality time—and they’ll return home with a renewed sense of wonder.

Discover the world through interactive activities inspired by National Geographic’s expertise in photography, wildlife, history, and more. Travel with two local guides who are specially trained to engage with young travelers. Enjoy comfortable, convenient accommodations and kid-friendly meal options throughout your trip.

National Geographic Family Journeys will offer 12 trips and is now on sale globally featuring unique National Geographic-inspired experiences for children and adults to connect as a family when they travel together on departures starting in March 2020.

National Geographic Expeditions is thrilled to share the itineraries for the launch of this new line of family trips. These trips reflect National Geographic’s mission to ignite the explorer in all of us and provide unique travel experiences that help us feel more connected to the natural world and the many differing cultures in it. This expanded partnership with G Adventures has given us a new opportunity to provide one-of-a-kind, immersive experiences to travelers who want to make meaningful, lifelong memories with members of their family.


The trips visit 12 countries on five continents and range from eight to 13 days in length. Each small-group tour will be led by two specially-trained Chief Experience Officers, who will deliver one-of-a-kind itineraries and activities to best meet children’s and adults’ interests. Each activity was designed around four guiding National Geographic themes: photography and storytelling, history and culture, wildlife and conservation, and exploration.

Among the destination and activity highlights that families can experience together are: wildlife spotting in Alaska’s national parks, where children can earn a junior ranger badge; pasta making and gladiator school in Italy; sumo wrestling lessons and samurai swordplay in Japan; acrobatics demonstrations with circus performers in Cambodia; and ziplining through the lush Costa Rican rainforest canopy.
