Kensington Wins 2014 National Geographic Traveler Award

Locations: Europe, Slovenia

Kensington Tours has been awarded National Geographic Traveler magazine’s 50 Tours of a Lifetime!  

Kensington's 9 day luxury tour of Slovenia, Green Charms of Slovenia, was selected as one of the authentic, innovative,  immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours. This cultural immersion into the Slovenian countryside is packed with hands-on experiences—beekeeping, pottery making, cooking zlikrofi (tiny tortellini)—and encounters with farmers and artisans. 

The tour will be featured in the May 2014 issue. The selection process was competitive and the National Geographic Traveler editorial team worked long and hard to select the 2014 winners. Kensington Tours is no stranger to National Geographic Traveler awards. Kensington was awarded 50 Tours of a Lifetime in 2010, 2011 & 2012 and was selected as one of National Geographic Traveler’s Best Adventure Companies on Earth in 2009.

National Geographic Traveler has always looked at the world through the lens of culture, nature, and history. The magazine surfaces the best tours and outfitters for travelers as part of the magazine’s mission “to propel readers out of their armchairs and into the field.” 

The tours they select “go beyond destination to add meaning and context,” says Norie Quintos, executive editor of National Geographic Traveler magazine. “They open the mind to new possibilities, new connections, new ways of thinking—all critically important given the world’s complex issues.”

National Geographic Traveler has the largest audience of any travel magazine, with more than 8.5 million readers.
