Costa Rica: Wildlife and Conservation
National Geographic Expeditions’ enhanced eight-night, nine-day expedition to Costa Rica includes seven departure dates through May. Costa Rica: Wildlife and Conservation leads travelers through the country’s rich biodiversity and conservation efforts. During this trip, explorers will visit wetlands and tropical rainforests where they may see sloths, monkeys, birds, frogs and more in their natural habitat; visit a family-run coffee, cacao and sugarcane plantation; join researchers at the Monteverde Institute to participate in cloud forest conservation projects; and journey to the Leatherback Turtle Trust to learn about monitoring turtles. Travelers will also stay in four different accommodations, each of which are chosen for their exceptional quality, location and character. National Geographic Expert, Vanessa Bezy, a National Geographic Society grantee, marine biologist and wildlife conservationist, will also join select departures to share her passion for conservation.
European River Cruises
National Geographic River Cruises take travelers to grand cities, forgotten villages and the endless countryside all while exploring some of Europe’s most historic waterways aboard world-class ships with AmaWaterways, a premier luxury river cruise line. Plus, each departure is accompanied by a National Geographic Expert—such as a historian, author or archaeologist—who gives presentations on board the ship and accompanies travelers on daily included excursions, and a National Geographic Photographer who offers professional tips on technique and artistry to help voyagers capture incredible moments.
