According to a recent survey of travelers*, 78% of Americans are planning on taking a domestic vacation in 2021 and G Adventures, the world’s leading adventure travel company, has just launched a collection of US trips that are sure to check the boxes on every travelers’ wish list.
From beaches to mountains, national parks to cities, this collection of 15 trips, including three that are brand new, will showcase the communities, landscapes and opportunities for adventure that make up the US. And, like all G Adventures trips, each itinerary is designed to go beyond the expected and uncover hidden gems, connect with locals and keep travelers’ dollars in the communities visited as much as possible.
“Between pent-up wanderlust and shifting requirements for international travel and re-entry testing, we’ve been seeing a significant spike in demand for domestic trips,” said Samantha Couture, G Adventures’ director of product for North America who helped create this collection. “Many travelers who might have been planning a Caribbean getaway or European vacation are looking to stick a little closer to home for the time being, but still want their vacations to be packed with adventure, relaxation and exploration. We’re sure that even the most seasoned traveler will find an itinerary in this new domestic collection that will appeal to them,” said Couture.
G Adventures’ itineraries take care of the logistics like National Park passes, accommodation and even some meals, so travelers can focus on the task at hand: exploring, learning and connecting.
Included in the new collection are:
Highlights of Southwest National Parks – this 7-day brand new Classic-style itinerary starts and ends in Las Vegas and includes visits to Zion National Park, Monument Valley, Canyon de Chelly in Navajo Nation and Grand Canyon National Park.
