With the announcement that the United States will reopen to international travel from November 08, 2021, G Adventures is unveiling its expanded United States of Adventure collection in Australia and New Zealand. The additional 13 newly-developed tours double the size of the collection, which was initially launched in February 2021 for domestic travellers, and now offers 28 trip options to national and Navajo Nation parks in the United States.
The new, small-group trips have been developed with the traveller experience and local communities top of mind. They include important Indigenous-led experiences such as in Monument Valley where a Indigenous guide will share their background and connection to the land, and a stop to the Native Grill food truck in Navajo Nation; a community tourism project that supports the local Indigenous community, while serving delicious Navajo tacos to travellers.
The trips also include secured access to highlights such as Antelope Canyon, which has been difficult to secure tickets for since the boom in domestic tourism this past year. Practical touches like included meals on all camping trips add value and enhance the ease of the traveller experience.
Sean Martin, managing director for Australia and New Zealand at G Adventures, says the timing could not be more perfect to unveil the United States of Adventure trips to a global audience as international travel resumes, especially with the recent news of borders opening in New South Wales and Victoria from November.
“We know our Aussie and Kiwi travellers love travelling to the United States and it’s a known quantity as a travel destination, so we’re super excited they can now plan their long-awaited bucket list U.S adventure. This new collection also meets the increased desire for this market to get out in nature and be more remote, so we’ve really worked hard to make the experiences enriching and fulfilling for this audience.
“Additionally, we’re excited to include a variety of different and difficult-to-book experiences in the itineraries, such as a Navajo-guided tour of Antelope Canyon and an Indigenous-led Jeep tour through Monument Valley. Exploring these incredible parks led by the passionate people who call these places home is what makes these adventures stand out,” says Martin.
The new tours depart from autumn 2022, and are a mix of Classic and 18-to-Thirtysomethings travel styles, ensuring the right pace to suit each traveller. Classic trips offer travellers the benefit of seeing several parks in one go, with some time spent in cities and comfortable hotel accommodation throughout. 18-to-Thirtysomethings trips are action-packed with travellers staying at camp sites and in basic motels.
