Sure, most people have heard of Disney’s world-class theme parks around the globe. There are theme parks on both coasts of the United States, Japan, France, and China. Many people are also aware that you can embark on journeys via Disney Cruise Line.

BUT, one little Disney secret is that you can also enjoy bookings with National Geographic Expeditions. This program grew from the legacy of the National Geographic Society, which has sent scientists, explorers, storytellers, and adventurers across continents and into remote cultures, down to the oceans’ depths, and up the highest mountains in order to understand our world better.

Now National Geographic Expeditions invites Guests to encounter the wonders of the world in depth, right at their source! Guests can enjoy Signature Land Trips, River Cruises, and PRIVATE Expeditions. And in 2024, 3 new itineraries will be on the menu of options for your adventures!

One new itinerary is Bhutan: Land of Mysticism and Mythology. Guests will embark on a journey that envelopes them in destinations where beauty and spirituality intertwine within the landscapes and the people that live here. The 11-day, 10-night itinerary includes visiting much of Bhutan through major destinations such as Paro, Thimphu, Punakha, and Phobjikha Valley.

Another is a visit to Colombia: Connections to the Land and the Past. This is the country that inspired Disney’s Encanto. Here, Travelers will dive into a nine-day, eight-night tour through the beautiful landscapes of Colombia from the mountains to the beaches. They will embark on a journey across Bogota, the Cocora Valley, Pereira, Santa Marta, and through Tayrona National Park and Barranquilla to make their way to Cartagena.

The Last new itinerary is The Baltics: Enchanted Forests and Medieval Castles. The Baltics are classified as one geographic region, yet it consists of three distinct countries sitting on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea. Travelers will visit all three countries, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, to gain a deeper understanding of what makes each region unique, from language, traditions, and beyond.

The 11-day, 10-night itinerary will take travelers across destinations such as Vilnius, the Curonian Spit, Klaipeda, Riga, Sigulda, Gauja National Park, and Tallinn.
