Changing the world through travel: that’s G Adventures goal since 1990. Sure, call them dreamers (wouldn’t be the first time), but that idea has been at the heart of everything they’ve ever done and has helped them grow into one of the biggest adventure travel companies on the planet.
But, to them, being big is meaningless if it comes at the expense of making someone else feel small. You know what… let’s drop the metaphors and get straight to the point: G Adventures is a social enterprise as much as they are a small group travel company. They’ve been pioneers of community tourism since the day they first headed out into the world 30 years ago. What does that mean? That their tours, created by building meaningful relationships with local communities, directly benefit the people and places they visit.
G Adventures have always believed travel can help local communities, Indigenous peoples, women, youth — anyone who has traditionally been marginalised or undervalued. Because there's incredible power in being part of something bigger than yourself. Today, their definition of community tourism means that the communities they impact ripples far beyond their destinations. To them, it includes their employees, supplier and agent partners, small business owners, customers, social followers, and travellers just like you.
Because when we all come together, we have the power to realise the full potential of our global community.
When you travel with G Adventures, you aren’t traveller #251,468. They think of you as their friend, a part of and contributor to their community, enjoying enriching experiences that give back and help make the world better. After all, you’re not only helping communities abroad, the renewed perspective you bring home can help change your own community as well. So the question is: do you want to change people’s lives through travel, while having the time of your life? If the answer is yes, well... Our world deserves more you.
