Cultural trekking in Bhutan, a first-of-its-kind multi-sport trip in Japan, cycling through rice fields in China, and rafting and cycling in Patagonia, Argentina, are all new experiences in store for travellers with the launch of G Adventures’ 2016 Active brochure.
In addition, the small group adventure operator, which is the largest on the Inca Trail, has experienced an increase in demand for the Lares Trek as an alternative option to the Inca Trail in Peru, and is now offering the Lares Trek on all of its trips taking travellers to Machu Picchu.
Each new Active trip includes a mixture of different activities and often uses camping as its main accommodation option to get travellers up close to nature.
New trips for 2016 include: Bhutan Trekking, priced from $3,499 p.p. for an 11-day trip from Paro return; Japan Hike, Bike & Kayak, a 13-day trip from Osaka to Tokyo priced from $4,799 p.p.; Cycle China, a 12-day trip from Hong Kong to Beijing is priced from $2,699 p.p.; Patagonia Multisport, priced from $3,389 for a 10-day trip from Santiago to Puerto Natales.
G Adventures is also now offering the three-day Lares trek beginning outside Cuzco, Peru to travellers who may be looking for an alternative way to reach Machu Picchu. Travellers on the Lares Trek will visit a number of G Adventures for Good projects along the way, including a community-owned campsite featuring composting toilets, solar showers and a solid-waste management system, which is the first of its kind in Peru.
