Twelve new trips await families who want to explore the world together, through an expanded partnership between G Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions.
The new program, titled National Geographic Family Journeys with G Adventures, goes on sale May 7, 2019, and will feature unique National Geographic experiences for children and adults for departures in 2020. Starting Saturday (Feb. 23), G Adventures will reveal details on one new itinerary per week.
Specialists in small group adventure
G Adventures and National Geographic first joined forces in 2015 with the launch of National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures, a program of small group adventures which has grown to include 89 trips in 53 countries during 2019.
“This new program of trips is perfect for adventure-loving families looking to discover the world together,” said Ben Perlo, Managing Director, G Adventures. “The newly-designed itineraries have been developed from scratch to inspire travellers of all ages to uncover each destination’s diverse characteristics, from wildlife and conservation to history and culture, exploration, and photography and storytelling.
“All our groups are made up of an international mix of travellers, giving families the opportunity to connect not just with each other, but with their fellow travellers and the local people they meet along the way. As is the case with all G Adventures tours, we encourage interactions with local people, and ensure as much money as possible stays in the communities we visit.
Added Heather Heverling, National Geographic's senior vice-president of product management:
“National Geographic Expeditions is excited to expand our partnership with G Adventures to include this new line of family trips. Travel is one of the most rewarding and enriching experiences a family can have together and we are thrilled to announce 12 new adventures to our global family of travellers in 2020.”
