The tour operator has introduced several new experiences for small groups looking to combine physical activity with cultural interaction on their next holiday.
Its new tours include multisport itineraries in Cuba and Indonesia and hiking options in the United States’ National Parks.
There is also a new way to hike Peru’s famous Inca Trail for one day with the alternative Lares Trek hiking route.
Simon Ma, brand manager for G Adventures’ Active travel style, said: “Health and well-being 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.”
