Date Posted: 09/01/2013

From heading to the slopes of an active volcano in Iceland to riding on an oxcart in Mongolia, G Adventures has expanded its Local Living programme with 25 destinations to choose from in 2013, including 18 in Europe.

Highlights include:

  • Burgundy Canal Boat Local Living: Cruising each day, clearing lochs and stopping along the way for wine tasting and gastronomic indulgences, plus cycling country lanes. 
  • Iceland Local Living: Participate in activities such as ice snorkeling, whale watching, glacier hiking and caving, and dine on home-cooked Icelandic specialties.
  • Mongolia Nomad Local Living: Travelling from Ulaanbaatar to Terelj National Park by horseback or oxcart, experience life with nomadic families.
  • Ecuador Jungle Local Living: Living with a local family, immerse your group in the scenery of the Amazon rainforest, learn Quichua traditions and experience life in the jungle.

What are Local Living holidays?

Tested for the first time in early 2012, G Adventures’ Local Living holidays promise to bring groups close to the location and its people by embedding them in local life.

Groups are based in one place where they can actively explore the culture and tastes typical of the region.

Local Living in Europe

18 Local Living trips are based in Europe in 2013, with destinations including Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece (Crete), France (Provence and Burgundy), Italy (Amalfi Coast, southern Tuscany, San Gimignano, Rome, Puglia and Sicily), Morocco (Marrakech), and Turkey (The Lycian Way).
