first_imgG Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions have launched National Geographic Family Journeys with G Adventures, a new program of 12 trips featuring unique National Geographic experiences for children, and adults, to connect through travel on departures in 2020.The success of the joint National Geographic Journeys led the two travel leaders to look at how they could partner in the family travel market, extending the reach of culturally immersive, small- group adventure holidays to appeal to children aged seven and above, as well as their parents and grandparents.Adrian Piotto, Australia and New Zealand, Managing Director, G Adventures, says the move to cater to the family market is a natural extension of the already successful partnership with National Geographic, a brand synonymous with exploration and education.“This new program of trips is perfect for adventure-loving families looking to discover the world together. 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.”Andrea Robinson, Australia and New Zealand Director, National Geographic Expeditions, says: “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.”For more information on the new itineraries, sign up HERE.IMAGE: Costa Rica Rincon de la Vieja/© G Adventures Inc.National Geographic Journeys familyG Adventureslast_img read more
