Background

The World Heritage name is adapted from UNESCO's World Heritage Convention.

Since 1972, the most noteworthy wilderness and cultural landmarks on earth have been designated World Heritage Sites by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Early lists of World Heritage sites included the Galapagos Islands and Mount Everest, the Roman Forum and Machu Picchu, along with the Grand Canyon, the Great Barrier Reef and the Great Wall of China.

The list has now grown to nearly over 800 sites, and World Heritage provides top-notch field services to reach these and other landmarks safely and in style. For more information, please visit the UNESCO World Heritage website.
