Geographic Expeditions


Destinations on the edge (Azerbaijan, Colombia, and Yemen) share space in the Geographic Expeditions brochure with more popular locales like Costa Rica and New Zealand. Whether you're trekking around Nepal's 26,000-foot Mount Manaslu or taking an expedition cruise through the Northwest Passage, expect face time with archaeologists, dignitaries, journalists, and other local figures—plus five-star accommodations wherever possible.
