Large male elephant seals make a deep bleating noise to warn other males. We documented many males fighting over territory on this cold morning at Gold Harbour, #SouthGeorgia. Photo by Mike Theiss @extremenature #natgeoexpeditions #elephantseals

The Treasury At Petra

Photo @jasonedwardsng Everyone loves Anemone Fish, they are colourful and full of spunk! They are also a great species to teach our guests on National Geographic Expeditions about symbiotic relationships and reef health. @natgeoexpeditions #natgeoexpeditions #greatbarrierreef #australia

Photo by @jonathan_irish. Just returned home from a great trip to one of my favorite places in the world—Chilean #Patagonia. Torres del Paine never fails to produce jaw-dropping scenes like this one. This sunrise photo of the Paine Massif was shot just out back of @tierrahotels Patagonia lodge. #natgeoexpeditions #natgeolodges #chile

Seeing Franz Josef Glacier from a heli was inspiring, but it’s not until you step foot on the ground that you fully understand the size and beauty of the landscape. Photos by @laurakfarrell #natgeostaff #natgeoexpeditions #newzealand #franzjosef

These wonderful creatures know exactly where to find the best water. @sararacamp remains a place of peace and solitude for wildlife populations despite any dry conditions in northern #Kenya. #natgeolodges #elephants

Alaska's Inside Passage

Photo @jasonedwardsng Weathered by sea and sky the ancient Moai statues of Rapa Nui watch over the most remote island on Earth. Clear blue skies can be wonderful but a rain front passing through a scene is far more interesting. A moving location to visit and explore with National Geographic Expeditions. @natgeoexpeditions #natgeoexpeditions #aroundtheworld #easterisland

Day two in #NewZealand. We kayaked and hiked in Abel Tasman National Park, awed by the turquoise seas that collided with lush green forest. Photos by #natgeostaff @laurakfarrell #abeltasman #southisland

Abel Tasman National Park

Photo by @alyssamadler. Cooperative bubble net feeding by #humpback whales in southeast #Alaska. In this social practice, several animals work together to create a net of ascending bubbles, trapping small fish for the entire group to feast on. #natgeoexpeditions

Isabela Island

First full day in #NewZealand did not disappoint. We hiked along the coast of Abel Tasman National Park before arriving at our lodge tucked away in the forest. The water was green, the sand white, and the sun shining. Hard to beat. Photos by @laurakfarrell #natgeoexpeditions #natgeostaff

Photo @jasonedwardsng If you cannot read Spanish or just choose to ignore the sign, then a Llama will be there to make sure you stay on the right path. Always listen to your internal Llama, especially when exploring the magnificent ruins of Machu Picchu with National Geographic Expeditions. @natgeoexpeditions #natgeoexpeditions #peru #aroundtheworld

Along the hike to Tiger’s Nest, you’ll encounter prayer wheels beckoning to be spun. Check out today’s Instagram Story and explore the wonders of Bhutan with us! Photo by #natgeostaff @jhdouglass12 #natgeojourneys #bhutan #tigersnest

One of the best parts about these expeditions for me is what I can learn on a trip. We had speakers like Yolanda Kakabadse, the president of @world_wildlife speaking about global issues like Food Waste, and @meettheocean teaching us about plankton and the sea. It’s more than just a trip. You leave knowing way more than when you arrived. Chile was definitely an experience I’ll never forget. @drewtrush


A rainy day in #Normandy cannot take away from the majesty of Mont Saint-Michel as it rises from its rocky islet. This #UNESCO World Heritage site is one of the greatest religious sites in all of #Europe and has drawn pilgrims since the eighth century.
