The channel was launched as Adventure One (A1) on 1 November 1999, and was later rebranded on 1 May 2007 as National Geographic Adventure, strengthening the overall Nat Geo presence.[3] All countries adopted the change, except in Europe which instead changed A1 to Nat Geo Wild.[4] Nat Geo Adventure is also a global adventure travel video and photography portal, which launched worldwide in 2009.

Nat Geo Adventure was aimed at younger audiences, providing programming based around outdoor adventure, travel and stories involving people having fun while exploring the world.

In early 2008, National Geographic Adventure Channel Australia and National Geographic Adventure Channel Italy launched a new video sharing feature on their website called Blognotes.

In 2010, Nat Geo Adventure launched its own HD feed in Asia via AsiaSat 5.

It was launched in HD on Sky Italia on 1 February 2012. At the time of launch (0500 UTC), its SD feed was closed down.

On 30 September 2013, it was announced that Nat Geo Adventure would be replaced by Nat Geo People in early-2014. This would see Nat Geo People launch in HD where currently available, as well as in linear and non-linear formats, in 50 countries internationally. The rebrand would see the channel become more female-focused, with programming to focus on people and cultures.[2] Nat Geo People was replaced by Nat Geo Wild in Germany and Austria on 12 September 2017. The channel was closed down in Australia on 28 February 2018 with all popular TV shows moving to the National Geographic Channel.
