In honour of its first 25 years, G Adventures hosted a special event in Toronto on September 29 to set the stage for its next quarter century. Dubbed ‘Ignite the Night’, the event saw the introduction of a number of new trips, a groundbreaking new partnership and several new initiatives that will positively impact lives all over the world. Check out our event coverage here.
The event was attended by over 600 travellers, media and international industry figures, providing an opportunity for networking alongside the fundraising, celebrations and big announcements.
Overland trucks As the number of people seeking the G Adventures experience increases so too does the requirement to provide ever more sophisticated overland expedition vehicles in which to carry our travellers. Yesterday, we provided a glimpse of a new fleet of custom-designed overland adventure vehicles—a revolutionary new mode of transport built to help our travellers get the absolute most out of your safari experience. Check it out here.
Riverboat program Yesterday, we announced our newest roster of trips—a lineup that reimagines river cruising, opening up the interior of some of the world’s most interesting locales via fabled waterways such as the Amazon, the Ganges, the Mekong, and the canals that feed France’s wine country. Check it out here.
Do Big Small Things On the heels of last year’s international bestseller Looptail, G Adventures Founder Bruce Poon Tip yeterday announced his second book —Do Big Small Things. Full of simple, playful prompts and eye-opening visuals, and brimming with worldly wisdom, healthy irreverence and a sense of boundless possibility, is a book that just might change your life. Check it out here.
G Adventures for Good: 50-in-5 Yesterday, G Adventures unveiled a bold new plan to make the world a little more perfect by 2020. Over the next five years, the company will raise $5 million to establish 50 new community development projects through the G Adventures For Good ‘50 in 5’ campaign, allowing us to positively impact even more lives. These projects are unique as they are built into G Adventures’ itineraries, meaning they become self-sustaining, as G Adventures has an existing customer base to feed into these new initiatives. Communities can then start investing the income they make into other areas that support community development, spreading the wealth even further. Check it out here.
