G Adventures announces eight new itineraries for 2020

G Adventures has introduced eight new Active trips for travellers looking to combine physical activity with cultural interaction on their next getaway.

The new tours include multisport itineraries in Indonesia and Cuba and fresh hiking options in the United States’ National Parks. There is also a new way to hike Peru’s famous Inca Trail for one day, during the alternative Lares Trek hiking route.

Simon Ma, brand manager for the operator's Active travel style, says the company has seen a 10% increase in global sales for their Active travel style, which combines daily outdoor activities with the local community tourism aspects.

Ma adds: “Health and wellbeing have become a priority for many travellers, and people are increasingly enjoying seeing new places by foot, bike and kayak. These modes of transport are lower-impact on the ground, so better for the environment, and they get travellers closer to a place and its people. There’s also the added benefit of burning off all the delicious local cuisine they’ll be trying along the way.”

Highlights of the new Indonesia multisport trip include whitewater rafting down Bali’s longest river, and hiking to the crater of the active Ijen Volcano to view the blue fire, ascending to the crater rim in time for sunrise. In Cuba, travellers will experience a cycling tour of the vibrant capital Havana, hike through the Mil Cubres eco-reserve, and hit the water at Bay of Pigs which is considered one of the best snorkelling sites in the country.

Three new hiking trips are being introduced in the United States’ National Parks, and include experiences such as stargazing in Capitol Reef, witnessing the world’s largest collection of known petroglyphs in Canyonlands, and hiking to the world’s largest tree in Sequoia National Park.

In Peru, the operator's biggest destination globally, travellers choosing to take the lesser-trodden Lares Trek to reach Machu Picchu now have the option to trek one day of the Inca Trail during their tour. On their journey they’ll also visit community tourism projects such as a local pottery-making operation and a community-owned Indigenous village campsite.

The 'Active Bali & Java' trip takes tourists from whitewater rafting at Ubud's Ayung River to a bike ride along the rural farms and plantations in Bulian, and a nighttime volcano hike in east Java. There's just enough free time in between to relax in Pemuteran, but travellers can also opt to snorkel or scuba-dive. A 12-day trip from Ubud to Sanut is priced from £749 per person.
