In Its Tenth Year, the Prestigious Selection Process Recognizes 2015’s Best Travel Experiences
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.— WANT Expeditions – the world leader in highly personalized, conservation-oriented small group travel – is pleased to announce the Greenland Traditional Dogsled Expedition has been selected as one of 2015’s “50 Tours of a Lifetime” by National Geographic Traveler. The list of acclaimed tours around the world will be featured in the publication’s May issue – in homes April 9th and at newsstands April 21st – and listed on National Geographic Traveler’s award-winning website.
The selection process was competitive and the editorial team worked long and hard to find 2015’s most authentic, most innovative, best-guided and most sustainable tours. Norie Quintos, acting Editor-in-chief of National Geographic Traveler, said, “This year marks ten years of our editors selecting the world’s best guided tours. In that time, the types of immersive and experiential trips have only multiplied; tours are going farther and deeper than ever before. The trips and operators we selected are a model for the rest of the travel industry: they open the world to travelers and, at the same time, leave a positive impact on the destinations and its people.”
Greenland Traditional Dogsled Expedition
The Greenland Traditional Dogsled Expedition transforms travelers into Polar explorers and offers hands-on opportunities and how-to instruction on traditional methods used by the Inuit people. While cultural differences and lack of knowledge have long contributed to controversy surrounding the remote civilization, WANT Expeditions provides an authentic, educational and immersive experience for each traveler.
Chosen by National Geographic Traveler as a “Tour of a Lifetime”, the Greenland Traditional Dogsled Expedition showcases how the Inuit people live a highly sustainable lifestyle off the isolated land they call home. Guests are challenged to understand the trials native people face in order to survive while experiencing cultural exchange, embracing differences, promoting global awareness and taking part in the survival skills of the Inuit people on this once-in-a-lifetime Arctic adventure.
