G Adventures Introduces Collection of Wellness-Focused Toursby Jessica Montevago /
G Adventures has launched a new collection of wellness tours, centered around the three pillars of mindfulness, movement and nourishment.
Regular yoga sessions, intention-setting, and healthy food choices are all offered on the 10 new small-group tours, which debuted on the G Adventures website this week. Travelers can also participate in local healing and mindfulness rituals such as a purification bath in Bali, a prayer ceremony with monks in Nepal, and an ashram stay in India.
The first of more than 80 departures will begin on June 8, 2019. Ranging from seven to 13 days in length, the itineraries include: Costa Rica, Colombia, Patagonia, Peru, Iceland, Italy, Thailand, India, Indonesia and Nepal.
Mindfulness-branded tours are slower-paced journeys, giving travelers time to explore their surroundings, while the accommodations options provide a quiet and calming base outside of city centers.
Trips focused on movement include Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa and Aerial yoga led by local experts; optional guided meditations; and activities, such as hikes in Iceland, stand up paddle boarding in Costa Rica, and cycling through rice terraces in Bali.
The nourishment-focused itineraries feature local culinary tours including market visits, tastings with local guides, and cooking classes with fresh ingredients. These healthy dining experiences feature fresh, local and seasonal produce with optional vegetarian and vegan options available.
