Sometimes the most rewarding trips are the ones where you can just let go and savour the experience, knowing you are in safe hands.

Exploring is an essential part of who we are at National Geographic, and our travellers’ wellbeing comes first. We are hard at work developing health and safety measures that make traveling with us in the era of COVID-19 possible, while keeping our trips memorable and inspiring. When the time is right for you, we will be ready. And we will be thrilled to see the world with you again.

Helping Keep You Safe

We are consulting closely with public health experts to determine how to best navigate this new normal in a measured and thoughtful manner. Our health and safety protocols will consider the latest guidance and recommendations of the U.S. Centres for Disease Control, international and local health agencies, and destination partners. Please continue to check our website for additional details as they become available.

We also are closely monitoring U.S. Department of State travel advisories and the guidance of government officials around the world so that we can nimbly respond to potential travel restrictions or policy changes in the countries we visit. When you choose to travel again, please visit the Department of State website,, to stay abreast of the situation in your chosen destination.
