August 21, 2006 - G Adventures is delighted to announce that we have been selected as a top tour operator for the 12th annual Green List, which identifies ecotourism's crème de la crème of outfitters, destinations and hotels.
G Adventures was chosen from amongst a large pool of international candidates to Condé Nast Traveler Magazine’s Green List. Winners are chosen for their demonstration to environmental initiatives, contributions to local communities, and the quality of the guest experience.
Being a responsible tour operator is at the heart of what we are all about. G Adventures was recognized by the Green List for our commitment to sustainable travel and for our non profit foundation – Planeterra, which was developed to make a difference in the lives of people and communities around the world through support of international charities, local organizations and community projects in the places that we visit on our tours. G Adventures pays all administration fees and has committed to matching all individual donations dollar-for-dollar, which means that 100% of all donations go directly to the projects Planeterra supports.
According to Condé Nast Traveler, the Green List winners demonstrate “The best ways to preserve the environments and cultures that make this planet worth exploring.”
