ABOUT G ADVENTURES

G Adventures is one of the world’s largest and most sustainable small group adventure tour operators. In 2019, they launched a program called Ripple Scores, allowing you to see the percentage of local businesses and services used in the creation of each and every one of their trips. The higher the Ripple Score, the more money stays within the local community.

In addition to numerous awards celebrating their sustainability initiatives in the tourism industry, they’ve also been recognized by world-class organizations such as National Geographic and the Jane Goodall Institute. In 2016, G Adventures launched a partnership with National Geographic by offering a travel style called National Geographic Journeys with G Adventures. These tours offer travellers opportunities to get closer to local communities, connecting you to local cultures, and which provide a greater emphasis on education and conservation. In 2017, G Adventures’ animal welfare policy was officially endorsed by the Jane Goodall Institute.

Through their non-profit arm, Planeterra, G Adventures connects social enterprises to the tourism marketplace. They do so by providing catalyst funding, capacity training and a market link for small businesses that support local and indigenous communities, women, youth, and the environment.
