National Geographic has long been revered for its commitment to exploring the many marvels of the world. Luckily, the trusted magazine has announced its 2024 travel expeditions offerings so you can get in on the adventure too.
Enjoy the view and be prepared to be immersed in the rich history of their 2024 destinations. Nat Geo’s 2024 travel season is dominated by European cruises led by Nat Geo storytellers with specialties in writing, history, photography, geography, and more.
The 2023 offerings include

Rhine River Cruise: Basel to Amsterdam: This expedition is perfect for those who love bike rides, walking excursions, and tasting tours. Float down the Rhine and experience the beauty of the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland with the help of a photography expert, who provides a special on-deck photo workshop to help you capture the experience.
Danube Christmas Markets River Cruise: Experience the Christmas magic while traveling between Budapest and Nuremberg. You’ll even get to stop at holiday marketplaces in Vienna and Salzburg and get a behind-the-scenes look at a meteorite exhibit created by Nat Geo Explorer Ludovic Ferriere.
Each expedition includes regionally inspired meals, complimentary wines at lunch and dinner, wellness facilities, and Wi-Fi.
