If you’ve tried to plan your own adventure to an off-the-radar locale, you know firsthand how challenging it can be. GeoEx is here to help. We have 30-plus destination mavens covering more than 100 countries, many of whom have won individual travel expert distinctions from the likes of Travel + Leisure, Outside, and Condé Nast Traveler. They have vetted and forged strong relationships with the best in-country representatives, selected topflight guides, and made sure that every lodge, hotel, train, ship, and camp is up to our—and your—high standards. Our rare experience saves you time and missteps on a what can be a very rough road.
