About Geographic Expeditions

A pioneer of travel to remote and challenging destinations since 1982, Geographic Expeditions (GeoEx) crafts wanderlust-fueled journeys to the world's most astonishing places. We're driven by our love of travel, our fascination with the destinations we're privileged to visit, and our delight in sharing them with you.

To the Ends of the Earth

We pour our in-country expertise and passion for eyes-open travel into intelligently designing Group Trips and Custom Trips—cultural tours, treks, safaris, cruises, and journeys by train—to the widest array of destinations. You can count on us for engaging and enriching experiences, innovative itineraries, top-notch leaders and lodgings, and the highest quality safety net.

A History of Firsts

GeoEx has a history of blazing trails in travel. In fact, the idea for the company sparked to life during a pioneering trek to the Tibetan side of Mount Everest in 1981. We were the first American company to negotiate protocols with the Chinese government to operate tours to backcountry Tibet and far western China. Our roster of innovative journeys soon expanded—to Nepal, Patagonia, India, Bhutan, the Middle East, and onward. Today we take travelers to all seven continents. Read more about our history

Your Trip is Our Pleasure

From our first conversation to your return home, we're there for you, discussing the ins and outs of your trip, arranging complex flight routings, and stepping in if things go off track. We handle all the details, saving you time and missteps. We’re committed to the right balance of adventure and comfort, and crafting innovative experiences that hit highpoints and branch out to unexpected, less-visited delights.

A Trustworthy Copilot

“Geographic Expeditions understands completely more than the logistics of travel—they understand the poetry and magic of travel,” wrote GeoEx traveler Tom B. “I am always deeply impressed by their rich and respectful approach to exploring the world, their superb professionals, and their genuine commitment to the highest quality experience.” We’re proud not only of reviews like this, but also that GeoEx ranks among the world’s top travel companies and is featured as trusted experts by Condé Nast Traveler, Outside, AFAR, Travel + Leisure, and others (see our awards).

We hope that you’ll explore the possibilities and give us the privilege of planning your next adventure.
