G Adventures adds eight new tours to National Geographic Expeditions range

The touring company’s range of ‘hands-on touring’ has grown to include new destinations and new immersive experiences.

G Adventures has expanded its range of National Geographic itineraries.

Scotland, Turkey and Wyoming aren’t destinations usually linked together but they all feature in a new range of immersive itineraries from G Adventures and National Geographic Expeditions.

The two organisations have unveiled eight new trips in an expanded range of itineraries sitting under the successful ‘National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures’ collection.

The latest line-up also includes four new trips geared for parents, children and extended families who are travelling together, which see guests exploring such diverse destinations as Belize, Greece, Ireland and the Southwest of the United States.

“National Geographic is a powerful household name, and G Adventures is the leader in small group trips and pioneer of community tourism,” said G Adventures Managing Director Australia, NZ and Asia, Sean Martin.

“Together we have created a uniquely attractive holiday option for immersive exploration that really gets into the heart of local communities in the destinations we travel to.”

As with all National Geographic Journeys trips, every adventure features exclusive experiences within the G Adventures portfolio.

Wandering in Turkey's Grand Bazaar is one of the highlights of the new tours.

These include a guided walk of Pitlochry in Scotland with a local specialist to learn the history of the town and hear tales of local life. In Turkey, travellers will meet the author of the book Troja to discuss the impact of the Trojan War, while in Wyoming, there will be wildlife tours taking travellers out to spot wolves, herds of bison, pronghorn, badgers, grizzly bears, and bald eagles.

Highlights of the Family Journeys include kayaking through Antelope Canyon in Arizona, participating in Greek family games in Athens, learning how to make tortillas from ground wet corn kernels in Belize and embarking on a treasure hunt mystery adventure in Dublin.

The new additions bring the total number of trips to 89 across both collections, including 16 designed especially for families. They are all available to book now, with the first departures taking place in April 2024.

“All these fascinating new trips focus on hands-on exploration, photography, history, culture, nature and wildlife, so they truly bring learning and adventure together with some of the world’s most incredible settings as a backdrop,” Martin added.
