Health and wellness are the focus of a new trip collection launched by G Adventures, which will feature more than 80 departures across 10 destinations in 2019.

The small group tour operator’s new ‘Wellness’ travel style features a program of trips designed to help travellers “slow down, find their balance and reconnect with the world, as well as with themselves,” the company said.

A slower pace of travel

With more than 80 departures planned in 2019, in destinations including Nepal, Costa Rica, Iceland, Patagonia, Tuscany and Peru, the new Wellness trips range from seven to 13 days in duration, and balance must-see highlights with a slower pace of travel.

Regular yoga sessions, intention setting and healthy food choices are all offered on the new program of tours so travellers return home feeling more balanced. Each destination has been selected for its unique wellness aspect, and travellers will participate in local rituals such as a purification bath in Bali, a prayer ceremony with monks in Nepal and an ashram stay in India.

Simon Ma, G Adventures’ Wellness Brand Manager, says now is the opportune time to launch into the Wellness space as more people look to combine the healthy lifestyles they have cultivated at home with their explorations abroad.

“The wellness industry has skyrocketed in recent years. According to the Global Wellness Institute, the wellness industry is now worth $3.7 trillion USD globally, with consumers seeking new ways to alleviate stress, reduce illness and boost well-being.

“Our new Wellness trips are designed to meet this demand, and also to be inclusive - they are suitable for travellers of all ages and abilities, and are centred around the three pillars of mindfulness, movement and nourishment. We also aim to cater to all kinds of dietary preferences, from gluten-free to vegan,” says Ma.
