National Geographic Family Journeys with G Adventures now on sale

National Geographic and G Adventures have announced the launch of their expanded partnership, National Geographic Family Journeys with G Adventures. 

The new programme of 12 trips is now on sale globally and feature unique National Geographic-inspired experiences for children and adults to connect as a family when they travel together on departures starting in March 2020. 

The trips, which are priced from £1,349 per person, visit 12 countries on five continents and range from eight to 13 days in length, with reduced pricing available to children ages 12 and under. Each small-group tour will be led by two specially-trained chief experience officers, who will deliver itineraries and activities to 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.  

The expanded partnership follows the success of 'National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures', launched in 2015. 

Heather Heverling, National Geographic senior vice president of product management, said: “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 different cultures in it. This expanded partnership with G Adventures has given us a new opportunity to provide one-of-a-kind, immersive experiences to travellers who want to make meaningful, lifelong memories with members of their family.”

Brian Young, G Adventures’ managing director for EMEA, added: “What really excites me about this new family travel style is how much learning, bonding, adventure and enjoyment is included, for every member of the family, at such an accessible price.

“Between National Geographic’s rich storytelling and G Adventures’ local expertise, families will discover that there is no need for compromise. Parents and children will each find something to look forward to —starting from pre-trip materials like family field guides and photography tips to spark a child’s imagination to unique destination experiences that will impress even the most seasoned adult travellers.”

All 12 trips are now bookable online at G Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions as well as through travel agents.
