National Geographic Expeditions has introduced three new immersive travel experiences for 2025, exploring Australia, Sri Lanka and Portugal and the Azores. Each tour is led by National Geographic Experts who provide specialized knowledge.

The 11-day “Australia: Reefs, Rainforests and Wild Tasmania” itinerary will allow guests to marvel at the Great Barrier Reef, observe indigenous wildlife like fairy penguins and learn about aboriginal cultures while trekking with guides in the Daintree Rainforest. Time exploring Sydney is also included.

The 10-day “Portugal and the Azores: Explorers, Ecological Wonders and Epicurean Delights” tour will visit five UNESCO sites and will deliver guests to vineyards for wine tastings. Kayaking the Douro Valley and a flight to Sao Miguel Island in the Azores for whale watching and a discussion with a marine biologist are part of the adventure as well.

Guests will tour a primate research station, visit a National Geographic-supported marine foundation run by Explorer Dr. Asha de Vos, go on safari drives and experience elements of Sri Lankan culture, such as a clay pot cooking class.
