G Adventures, the world’s leading adventure travel company, has launched eight new trips in its 2015 Comfort brochure – adding trips in Belize, Central and Eastern Europe, East Africa, Ecuador, Patagonia, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
Being immersed in Buddhist culture at a Monastery guesthouse in Nepal, touring a spice garden in Sri Lanka and visiting Marie Sharp’s hot sauce factory in Belize are just three experiences travellers who enjoy adventure travel with a few added home comforts can now have.
Belinda Ward, Managing Director for G Adventures Australia and New Zealand, says the new tours have been introduced to cater for increased demand in G Adventures’ Comfort trips which has risen 40 per cent year-on-year to January.
“There are always going to be travellers who are after trips that are a bit more adventurous, but don’t want to compromise on the comforts of home,” said Ward. “Having said that though, they don’t want to lie on a beach for a week – they want to learn about the culture and people in a destination.”
All G Adventures’ Comfort trips feature accommodation that is handpicked and unique to the destination, and include extras such as airport transfers, private transport and more included meals. The trips maintain the traditional aspects of a G Adventures tour, providing a holiday where the focus is on keeping the experience truly local, and tourist dollars in the local community.
“On top of the added comforts and classic G Adventures activities, a large number of our Comfort tours also include a visit to a Planeterra – G Adventures’ non-profit organisation – project. For example the new Treasures of Nepal trip includes a visit to a new project called Sisterhood of Survivors, where travellers can learn to cook with women who are survivors of human trafficking,” said Ward.
