Plan Your Own Trip

We know group tours aren't for everyone. But we still want everyone to get out and connect with nature -- and travel is a great way to do that.

NWF partners with some of the best tour companies in the U.S. to develop and execute our Expeditions. These companies share our philosophies about wildlife and wild places. They work to educate travelers about the natural world, and to ensure their programs have minimal impacts on the environment. That's why we can whole-heartedly recommend these companies, to help you plan your own individual tours and itineraries.

To plan a trip for yourself, your family, or a group of friends these companies can help you from beginning to end.
