Not all adventures – and adventurers – are created equal.
Perhaps you’re someone who enjoys adrenaline-fueled activities. Rock climbing, bungee jumping and white-water rafting are the kinds of adventures that float your boat. Maybe you prefer hiking and camping along rugged shores and in fairytale forests. Or, it’s a gentler adventure that piques your wanderlust: nostalgic rail journeys or classic Big 5 safaris for those who prefer a slower pace, but no less adventurous experience.
For almost 30 years, G Adventures has been offering small group adventures across the world, in all seven continents, i.e.: even Antarctica. But while all G Adventures tours share a common love of adventure, life-altering experiences come in a variety of styles. This is why G Adventures has launched their Travel Style collections, in which they’ve curated tours around common themes.
The launch of G Adventures Travel Styles coincides with the tour operator’s list of the 10 hottest spots to travel to in 2019, which sees destinations on the rebound and places where events and political changes have made them more exciting or accessible to visit. On the list: Japan, Uzbekistan, Senegal, Taiwan (recently proclaimed by the New York Times as Asia’s most food-obsessed country), Northern Sri Lanka (previously cut off from tourism for decades due to civil war), Jordan, Iceland, Ethiopia, Italy and Patagonia.
So, what’s your adventure style, and where will it take you?
Why just see the world when you could bike, hike, kayak, and multi-sport it? If you’re looking to stretch beyond your comfort zone and achieve personal goals, G Adventures Active tours keep travellers who like to move on the move.
Picture hiking among palm trees in Colombia’s Chingaza National Park, or whitewater rafting in the Suarez Canyon. Or, in Tanzania, cycling through Lake Manyara National Park. Take on Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest point, or take a hike in the Kathmandu Valley for a different perspective on the valleys and peaks of Nepal, beyond Everest Base Camp.
An Active trip with G Adventures offers the chance to both push yourself and reward yourself, while feeling a true sense of accomplishment. All the equipment is provided. You only need bring the motivation.
Discover awe-inspiring destinations combined with activities like yoga, meditation, and healthy food experiences to recharge the body and nourish the mind. G Adventures Wellness tours are designed to help you slow down, find your balance and reconnect with the world, as well as with yourself.
Centred around three pillars – mindfulness, movement and nourishment – and heading to destinations including Nepal, Costa Rica, Iceland, Patagonia, Tuscany and Peru, the Wellness range of trips balance must-see highlights with a slower pace of travel.
