G Adventures has confirmed its first planned departures since the start of the coronavirus crisis.
The adventure specialist has announced a small collection of tours will depart in the autumn.
Greece, Spain, France, Italy, Croatia and Iceland will feature across an initial 21 departures planned for September; these include active trips, sailing adventures and local living-style tours.
It comes after the UK government’s announcement of the country’s first travel corridors and exemptions for the Foreign Office’s advisory against all non-essential travel.
G Adventures said the trips were suitable for those exploring "bubble" holiday options with friends and family, or a small group of like-minded travellers.
Managing director Brian Young said the government’s travel corridors announcement was a welcome signal the country as ready to start travelling again.
"We’re excited to be able to offer travellers the opportunity to go away in September," he said. "[We] have designed this collection to cater to travellers of all types; from the active lover to those simply wanting relaxation and some sunshine.
“We’ve worked closely with our suppliers in these destinations over the past few months and are confident in the operation of these tours," Young added.
All 21 tours will be subject to increased health and hygiene measures to protect travellers and staff following the announcement of G’s Travel with Confidence policy.
The operator said during lockdown, it had seen an increase in interest for more active, physically challenging adventures.
The collection includes an eight-day Trekking Mont Blanc tour and an eight-day Walk the Camino de Santiago taking in Spain’s famous pilgrimage route. Elsewhere, two sailing itineraries in Greece and Italy will also be available.
G’s full tour programme remains suspended up to and including 31 August.
"We are closely evaluating the operations and safety of other departures in September, beyond this new collection, with no decision on further suspensions at this current time," Young added.
