National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World is more than a selection of world-class hotels, it is a collection of rare experiences, offering guests intimate encounters with parts of the world not many get to know—and the chance to slow down and truly discover them. Each lodge is deeply rooted in its community and dedicated to protecting the surrounding habitats and cultures—and harnessing their magic to safeguard them for the future. Start exploring our Lodges now.

Spotlight: 51 Lodges That Celebrate Giving Back

Plus Enter to Win a Caribbean Getaway!

We have 51 reasons to be grateful this season. All year long, all around the world, the lodges in our collection are giving back to the people and habitats that surround them. From an airlift of threatened rhinos to safe zones in Botswana to agroforestry classes for farmers in the Amazon, check out 51 inspiring stories in the gallery above. To celebrate what our lodges have done for our world, we’re giving back too. Enter to win a stay for two at Petit St. Vincent, a National Geographic Unique Lodge set on a private island in the Caribbean’s Windward Isles.

The beauty of the off-season is that places that are well-trodden at their peak get to show a different, sometimes more authentic side of themselves once the crowds have gone. If you’re willing to pack a rain jacket or some extra layers, the rewards of traveling to our lodges in the low season can be great. Not only are there fewer crowds and often cheaper prices, you are privy to an intimate side of the destination that’s harder to find when you travel during high season. Here are some of the secrets of the seasons from staff at our lodges.

Award-winning chef Kirsten Dixon put southern Alaska on the culinary map with the opening of her food-focused Tutka Bay Lodge. Nat Geo staffer Aundrea Kudrna recently traveled to the Kenai Peninsula for a taste of the lodge’s signature frontier-fusion fare, and she’s sharing her experiences—at the table and beyond—in our newest Traveler Moments gallery.
