Wellness Travel Tours with G Adventures
G Adventures now offers wellness travel experiences in 10 destinations across the Americas, Europe and Asia. First departures will begin on Global Wellness Day, June 8, 2019.
The 10 new Wellness itineraries are priced from $1,549 - 3,299 USD per person, with air separate, and are centered around three primary pillars: mindfulness, movement and nourishment.
Mindfulness -- Each Wellness trip will be led by a specially-trained G Adventures Chief Experience Officer (CEO), and begins with an intention setting ceremony where travelers will explore their reasons for seeking wellbeing, and set out what they want to achieve from their journey. The slower-paced itineraries give travelers time to ground themselves on arrival and to explore their local surroundings, while the accommodation options provide a quiet and calming base outside city centers.
Movement -- A variety of different types of yoga will be led by local experts, including Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa and Aerial, and optional guided meditations will steer guests toward mindfulness, mantra and transcendental practices. Wellness travelers will also connect with their physicality through movement experiences, including natural hikes in Iceland, stand-up paddle boarding in Costa Rica and cycling through rice terraces in Bali.
Nourishment -- Operating with the understanding that food is more than a meal, each tour will feature local culinary tours including market visits, tastings with local guides, and cooking classes with fresh ingredients. These healthy dining experiences will be centered around fresh, local and seasonal produce with optional vegetarian and vegan options available. They are meals designed to nourish the body and mind.
“At G, we are all about going farther and experiencing more. But sometimes, the best thing we can do for a traveler is help them look inward so they can focus on themselves. Whether they crave ‘me-time’ on a solo adventure, or want to share a healthy reboot with like-minded friends and family in a close-knit group, Wellness is a common interest that most of us share. We can’t wait to start booking these tours.”
