Expect the extraordinary.

G Adventures are the Great Adventure People. We are a team of energetic explorers seeking to experience the real world with a grassroots approach to travel. We create amazing adventures that are meaningful and memorable. And we invite you to join us on the path less travelled and experience something extraordinary.

How did it all start? With a very inspired young man named Bruce Poon Tip. After returning from a backpacking tour of Asia, in 1990 Bruce was driven to share his passion and vision about experiencing adventures in an authentic and sustainable manner with others. With nothing more than his own personal credit cards, G Adventures was born. What started off as a one-man show has grown to become the world's largest adventure travel company with over 1350 employees.

Today, G Adventures offers more than 1,000 small group experiences, safaris and expeditions on all seven continents, to more than 100,000 travellers a year. The choices are vast – from safaris and cultural treks to family vacations and exotic expeditions to places you have never even imagined, there is an adventure for everyone. If you share a lust of life and have an insatiable curiosity about truly experiencing the world we live in, then join us and embark on a quest for the extraordinary.

Kudos!
