National Geographic Expeditions Announces 2023 Departure Dates to Breathtaking Destinations, New River Cruise Offer

National Geographic Expeditions announces new 2023 departure dates for their Signature Land, Private Expedition and River Cruise itineraries, including a reimagined trip, Costa Rica: Wildlife and Conservation. These exciting offerings will take travelers to destinations around the world along with knowledgeable National Geographic Experts or guides who will share their experiences.

Offering premium, fully planned itineraries, National Geographic Expeditions’ curated Signature Land trips boast a small group of 16-25 travelers and combine the best of exploration with an in-depth review of the history, culture, heritage and natural wildlife of a destination. National Geographic Expeditions’ 2023 Signature Land dates feature top itineraries including Patagonia, Egypt, India and Borneo. The enhanced eight-night, nine-day expedition to Costa Rica leads travelers through the country’s rich biodiversity and conservation efforts. During this trip, explorers will visit wetlands and tropical rainforests where they may see sloths, monkeys, birds, frogs and more in their natural habitat; visit a family-run coffee, cacao and sugarcane plantation; join researchers at the Monteverde Institute to participate in cloud forest conservation projects; and journey to the Leatherback Turtle Trust to learn about monitoring turtles. National Geographic Expert, Vanessa Bezy, a National Geographic Society grantee, marine biologist and wildlife conservationist, will also join select departures to share her passion for conservation.

National Geographic River Cruises take travelers to grand cities, forgotten villages and the endless countryside all while exploring some of Europe’s most historic waterways aboard world-class ships with AmaWaterways, a premier luxury river cruise line. Each departure is accompanied by a National Geographic Expert—such as a historian, author or archaeologist—who gives presentations on board and accompanies daily included excursions, and a National Geographic Photographer who offers professional tips on technique and artistry to help voyagers capture incredible moments.
