Special Events & Expeditions

Our Special Events and WT Expeditions are truly extraordinary, combining phenomenal experts with journeys in intriguing corners of the world. Watch a total solar eclipse with renowned astronomers, learn about the secrets of the Incas, or trace Shackleton’s epic voyage in Antarctica with climbing legend Conrad Anker. Each event is offered just once, and they sell out quickly. See what we have coming up!
