Adventure specialist G Adventures has added new Canary Islands and Maldives itineraries, capitalising on the destinations being added to the UK government’s quarantine-free travel corridor list.
Options include a Tenerife hiking tour and a Maldives dhoni boat adventure, as well as an adventurous new Costa Rica itinerary, an opportunity to climb Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, and a Tanzanian camping tour.
The new tours are covered by G’s travel with confidence policy, which guarantees increased hygiene and safety protocols designed to guard against the spread of coronavirus.
G Adventures managing director Brian Young said the new tours would allow travellers to balance activity and adventure with a bit of winter and spring sun after a disrupted summer holiday season.
"Over the past six months, we’ve seen demand for active breaks soar, with trips such as climbing Kilimanjaro being top of the search list," said Young.
"Having been unable to travel during the pandemic, many travellers are beginning to think about how their future travels can be more meaningful.
"These trips are a perfect example of how we can ’retravel’ better, changing the way we think about a destination and opting for lesser visited areas that support local communities.
"Our winter departures offer travellers a bit of everything; from physically demanding climbs, to end 2020 on a literal high, to action-packed adventures in Costa Rica, where travellers zipline and trek in the forest, before unwinding on some of Costa Rica’s best beaches."
