The new wellness and adventure programme from G Adventures includes trips in ten destinations, all designed to slow travellers down and appreciate their surroundings.
The new wellness trips range from seven to 13 days, and balance must-see highlights with a slower pace of travel.
Regular yoga sessions, intention setting and healthy food choices will be on offer to small groups, and travellers will be encouraged to take part in local rituals such as a purification bath in Bali, a prayer ceremony in Nepal and an ashram stay in India.
Destinations included in the wellness programme are Bali, Colombia, Costa Rica, Iceland, India, Italy, Nepal, Patagonia, Peru and Thailand.
Commenting on the new wellness trips, Brian Young, managing director EMEA at G Adventures said: “They are suitable for travellers of all ages and abilities, and are centred around the three pillars of mindfulness, movement and nourishment.”
