If you seek an active and adventurous vacation far from the beaten path, you might consider G Adventures. The company travels to seven continents with small group sizes and a commitment to low-impact travel.
Accommodations are chosen based on G Adventures’ philosophy of sustainable tourism. You may find yourself staying at a family farm or at a quaint bed-and-breakfast. The same approach is used to arrange for transportation between destinations. These elements, along with some meals and activities and the services of a tour director, are provided for one low upfront price.
While some itineraries are unusual and adventurous but not necessarily active in nature, others include activities like hiking and biking and call for a moderate level of fitness to fully appreciate the experience.
