G Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions are strengthening their partnership with the launch of National Geographic Family Journeys with G Adventures.
The new 2020 programme, comprising 12 trips, will be bookable online and through travel agents starting May 7, 2019.
G Adventures and National Geographic first joined forces in 2015 with the launch of National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures, a programme of small group adventures which has grown to include 89 trips in 53 countries during 2019.
With the new programme, the partners hope to broaden the reach of their small-group adventure holidays to also appeal to children aged seven and above, as well as their parents and grandparents.
Adrian Piotto, Australia and New Zealand, managing director, G Adventures, said the new itineraries include destination characteristics ranging from wildlife and conservation to history and culture, exploration, and photography and storytelling.
He added: “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.”
