Estonia, Ireland, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Mozambique and Rwanda are the seven new countries appearing in G Adventures’ 2014 ‘best-of’ compilation of Classic trips, which features 28 new trips from a total of 278 trips around the world.
G Adventures has seen increased demand for more trips in Indonesia, China, South Africa and Ecuador and holidays visiting these countries feature heavily in the new line-up, along with holidays in destinations already visited that have been given a new twist, such as Taste of Mexico and Belgian Beer Tour.
G Adventures’ Classic trips are those the small group operator built its brand on and offer the widest diversity in terms of geographical offerings and cultural experiences, appealing to all ages and demographics. All trips continue to be 100% guaranteed to depart, an adventure travel industry first introduced by G Adventures last year.
Robyn James, marketing manager, Canada, G Adventures, says the Classic trips provide travellers with a consistent experience, whether they travelled one year or 20 years ago.
“As we’ve grown we’ve introduced a number of new trips styles to suit traveller’s varied interests. The Classic range is our largest collection and reflects the typical G Adventures traveller, someone looking for local and culturally immersive experiences, travelling in a small group with an international mix of travellers.”
All trips are available to view online at www.gadventures.com and star in the new flagship “Earth” brochure which is available now.
New itineraries in the 2014 Classic range include:
Best of Java - This unexplored area of Indonesia is waiting for those looking for something different. From Jakarta, travellers venture to the curiously European-like city of Bandung, the “Paris of Java”, en route to Yogyakarta, home to the island’s monstrous volcanoes. Perfect for travellers looking to explore the cultural side of Java and end on the beach in Bali. Priced from $1,199pp for a nine-day trip from Jakarta to Sanur, departing year-round from January 2014.
Ecuador Quest - Live like a local at an Amazon homestay, witness Andean scenery, soak in the hot springs of Baños, shop at the Otavalo market. This trip suits travellers looking to traverse the often over-looked mainland of Ecuador, as well as those who are looking to add it on to a Galapagos experience. Priced from $999pp for an eight-day trip from Quito return, departing year-round from January 2014.
Mozambique, Kruger & Swazi Discoverer – Search for the Big Five on breathtaking game drives, enjoy a dhow safari in Bazaruto National Park, indulge in mouth-watering seafood, snorkel in the turqouise waters off Mozambique, visit a local Planeterra-supported preschool, and experience the Portuguese flavour of the port towns. Price from $2,499pp for a 14-day trip from Johannesburg return, departing from April to October 2014.
The Silk Road of China - Northwest China is about as far away from “traditional China” as you can get without crossing the border. The source of the Silk Road is unlike anything to be found in Beijing or Xi'an and this adventure takes travellers deep into the China few ever see. A 17-day trip from Beijing to Kashgar is priced from $3,599pp for departures from April to October 2014.
