Short Description

Essayist and Arctic poet, Gretel Ehrlich, describes the Arctic as a place where "the real and the imagined have long since fused." You can get there comfortably aboard the Russian nuclear icebreaker, the 50 Years of Victory. In his book Poles Apart, Galen Rowell described life aboard one of these comfortable icebreakers: “As multicourse meals were served on white linen, house-sized blocks of ice split off the bow with the sound of thunder and the shaking of a 9.0 earthquake.”

This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.

The trip to Mongolia to see the Eagle Hunters festival was an adventure to the ends of the Earth. Being able to really meet and stay with the authentic nomads was outstanding.

Superb in every way

Custom trip to Rwanda to trek to the silver back gorillas. Every facet of the trip was planned perfectly, our guide was able to take us to local hangouts and we even were able to visit his family and home. Second part of the trip was to S. Africa, but not through Geo Ex, and we had some real problems. We flew back to Joberg and called our contacts with GeoEx and they were able to provide us with guides and events for and enjoyable week in SA.

You've outdone yourselves again, GeoEx! GeoEx helped our family plan a trip to Turkey a few summers ago and it was the best vaca EVER! Our trip adviser created a phenomenal trip for seven of us .. all varying in ages and with different interests and activity levels and she did amazing job. I knew the trip would run smooth from the first conversation I had with the adviser. We were in good hands. She set us up with a fabulous guide the whole week we were there who anticipated our needs before we knew them! Our guide helped us navigate many cities/countryside/tours of mosques, eating, shopping, hiking around Turkey. We also got to relax and enjoy the last few days on a gulet (boat) at the end! All five kids continue to talk about that trip and consider it 'the best trip EVER'! Thanks, GeoEx, for the wonderful family memories! We are looking forward to planning our next family adventure soon!
