Our exclusive family-friendly program is available on our Galápagos and Alaska expeditions restarting in June—perfectly timed for this summer’s family vacations.
Developed in conjunction with National Geographic Education, the Global Explorers program launched in Galápagos in 2017 and expanded to Alaska in 2018. It was designed to help kids develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge of an explorer—by choosing cool activities to engage in during the expedition.
Guests under 18 will:
“Having direct access to a naturalist was a real bonus. We could ask questions whenever we wanted and I got to learn about what I was interested in. Working in the Field Notebook was a good way to reflect on what I did each day and capture what I saw, learned, and experienced. Meeting other kids from across the U.S. was cool too. I made some lasting connections and had a lot of fun!”
- BRIDGET GOLDBERG, National Geographic Quest Guest
Activities are always optional—to maximize flexibility for families to engage in activities together or follow their own individual interests. We knew the program was well-designed, and we were proud of the quality of the National Geographic Global Explorers Program Field Notebook, but even we were surprised by kids’ and teens’ appetite for the program. And they love their Field Notebooks!
Whether your kids or grandkids struggled with remote learning this past year or took to it, chances are you will be pleased and gratified by seeing the richness and sheer smart fun our National Geographic Global Explorers Program will add to their, and your, summer vacation.
“I can only hope that these kinds of experiences—both for my kids and all the families onboard—will help culture a real love of the natural world that gets deep into their cells, that lays the foundation for becoming our planet’s future stewards.” —DR. TIERNEY THYS
