TORONTO — G Adventures has launched a collection of 32 new once-in-a-lifetime experiences in its Limited Edition program.
The updated program combines existing ‘one-off’ trips with newly created trips, and is designed to get travellers more immersed in a country by delivering experiences that are unique to each place and its people. Highlights include a Halloween party at Bran Castle in Romania, celebrating Haitian Carnival in Jacmel, jamming at Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica, indulging at Pizzafest in Italy, and running in the Serengeti half-marathon.
“As travellers venture to more new places and become more adventurous, they are pushing the boundaries further,” says Jeff Russill, VP of Product, G Adventures. “Bucket lists are getting more sophisticated and with this new selection of tours we have taken our knowledge of what works in event-based tourism and expanded that to include all new, next-level trips. Our Limited Edition trips appeal to a variety of interests and include unusual and wonderful one-off experiences for music fans, active travellers, wildlife lovers, foodies and culture vultures.”
The 32 trips cover more than 20 countries and also include recognized events such as La Tomatina in Spain, Carnivals in Rio de Janiero and Venice and Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
