Do your ‘all-inclusive’ tours include international airfare?
Our all-inclusive international adventure tours include accommodations, meals, activities and all local transportation. Since Adventure Travelers arrive from all over the world to begin these tours, it’s not possible to include international airfare in our prices. However, we’d be happy to help you arrange your flights. Just ask for an ‘air quote’ when making your booking.
Can you help arrange my travel visas?
Currently, none of our available tours require travel visas, which makes things easier. However, if any of our upcoming tours destination require visas, we will help arrange your travel visa and provide you all the necessary resources and instructions upon booking your tour. From start to finish, our team of experts are hand-on, every step of the way.
What is the most appropriate type of luggage to bring and what should I pack?
Travel light and move fast is our motto. Having said that, the way our tours have been designed, you will not have to worry about getting stuck carrying suitcases on and off buses and trains. Furthermore, we provide you with a comprehensive preparation and packing list of everything you need to know and bring for each adventure tour. Simply click on the ‘Preparation and Packing List’ link to download the information.
What clothing should I pack for one of your adventures?
We always recommend packing as light as possible however the specific requirements for your tour will vary widely depending on where and when you are traveling. Our ‘Packing List’ document includes a suggested packing list and these can be downloaded from each individual trip summary page. The checklist is tour specific and based upon the experience of our expert staff.
Do we require vaccinations for any of your adventures?
Currently, none of our tours require vaccination. However, if any of our upcoming tour destinations require vaccinations, we will provide that information and resources to you upon inquiry. Please note: It is important that you receive the most accurate and up-to-date travel health information for the region you will be visiting. The only one qualified to provide you with this advice is your family physician or a specialist from a Travel Health clinic.
How many people can join a tour?
We keep our group sizes low so that you get more personal attention from our adventure guides. Group sizes range from 8 to 16 participants. This intimate size ensures that your group will not crowd your experience.
What are the age restrictions on your tours?
To travel independently you must be at least 18 years of age. There are no upper age limits for our tours as we provide an initial assessment to rule out any pre-existing medical conditions or physical injuries that may prevent your participation. The minimum age required to participate in our adventures ranges from 12 to 14 years of age when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian (maximum of 2 children per adult).
I’m a single traveller, will I be charged a single supplement?
Most of our trips do not have a single supplement. This means that the accommodation is on a twin share basis and, if you are travelling on your own, you will be sharing a room with another G Adventures traveller of the same sex. Some tours have an optional single supplement or rarely a mandatory single supplement.
An optional service that may be available is called “My Own Room”. This service allows solo travellers to request their own private room while on tour. The cost and the details vary by trip, so please contact our office for more details.
Can I change my hotel accommodation?
Some of our destinations do not include hotel rooms but rather tree houses and cave camps. So, if you prefer a specific tree house, I’m sure we can accommodate! For destinations with hotels, they are not available for change, as they are included in the set itinerary.
Can I join a tour late or leave it early?
It’s extremely difficult if not impossible to join a tour after it has begun. It is possible to leave a tour early, however, you will be responsible for your own arrangements from the moment you decide to leave the tour. You would also be responsible for all costs associated with joining a tour late or leaving one early. If you feel this may be necessary please contact our Travel Specialist before booking your tour.
Is local transportation included?
We provide the easiest way to adventure travel by assuring that all your local transportation within your trip itinerary will be covered. You will be responsible for all costs related to personal transportation not included in your itinerary (i.e.; transit or taxis on your free time).
Who are my travelling companions?
For privacy reasons we cannot provide you with advance details on your traveling companions. Our tours appeal to a wide range of travellers, most of whom are health conscious and share an adventurous spirit.
What does your sustainable and healthy brand mean to my trip experience?
Our brand of ‘Adventure Travel, Only Healthier.’, means that the locations you will travel to will be filled with natural, untouched landscapes. Our support for local farming in each of our destinations guarantees that the food you will be consuming is fresh, local and natural. Our physically healthy tours allows us to participate in activities every day, with minimal if no sight seeing – which you are welcomed to do on your free time instead of joining our ‘yoga downtime’. We strive to provide trips that make you feel stronger, enlightened, humbled, clear headed and more energized upon your return.
Can I book extra nights of hotel accommodation before or after my tour?
Yes, in most cases we can arrange additional accommodation at our starting or ending hotels. Our tours are also located in locations where you can easily plan an extended getaway. Please contact our office for more details about extended stay information.
Is tipping included and if not, how much should I budget?
Tips are not included in the tour price. Since our adventure tours are all-inclusive, we recommend tipping at about 5% of the cost of your trip.
Challenge accepted! Exploration Fitness combined traveling experience with the athletic knowhow to create an adventure which challenged me both physically and mentally. The serenity of the mornings in Patagonia, Chile did not foreshadow the challenges the day brought. By morning I drank coffee while looking out at breathtaking, uncultivated nature, but by day I was climbing cliffs, rafting rivers, and repelling down mountains. The exhilaration of the days made the relaxing evenings feel earned.
I will forever remember the sense of accomplishment I felt after overcoming my angst when I stepped off the face of a 300ft cliff. Never in my life did I think a vacation could be so rewarding. I stretched my personal boundaries and returned home feeling as though I had conquered the world, or at least a 300ft piece of it.
Exploration Fitness not only provided the trip, but also helped me prepare for the trip. A couple months before the trip, I talked with Ari, the fitness trainer, whom coached me through both a fitness program, and a nutrition program. Not only did the programs help me prepare for the daily challenges of the trip, but also continue to help me feel healthier in my daily life.
I am grateful to the guides, trainers, and helpers for all the effort they put into planning and making this adventure a reality. I would recommend this challenging, yet highly rewarding trip to anyone. I cannot wait to start planning my next one!
The trip to the Futaleufu River was amazing! The training, packing details, to the trip itself was great. Brad helped with any and all questions regarding the trip, weather, packing, food, and any other random questions we might have. Ari is the fitness director and called us to talk through any past and/or current injuries and created a personal workout plan to follow if I wasn’t able to attend the fitness camp that was provided.
Following this plan helped out a lot during the trip and I was able to get the most out of every single day. While there, the guides were great! Chico, Daniel, and Cristian made sure that all the accommodations were set up. Food was amazing, grilled natural meats daily form the local farms and so tasty! We had a full set of activities to do every day, which made sure that everyone was enjoying their time and kept moving. This was the best trip I have ever been on and would go again in a heartbeat.
Overall, had a great time!
Thank you for the trip of a lifetime! The minute I first went online to look at your website and learnmore about the trips, I just knew that this was something I needed to do. The months leading up to the trip seemed to take forever! I was excited, nervous and just wanted to get the adventure started! Having said that, the months leading up to the trip also really motivated me toget fit, I wanted to bring the best version of myself to Chile, so that I could really enjoy every activity. I loved getting new workouts and the attention of the personal trainers really helped keep me on track. Your team was also unbelievably supportive, with always answering any questions right away and really ‘taking care of us’ before we even stepped foot onto the plane!
As for the actual trip, there was no room for disappointment and there wasn’t anything I would have changed. The scenery was breathtaking and truly indescribable. I constantly felt so fortunate, to havethe opportunity to travel to such a remote and beautiful part off the world. The mountains, the constant breaths of fresh air and the turquoise of the glacial waters are what stayed with me the most. As for food (incredibly delicious and fresh every day!), accommodations (unique and ingenious), transportation (private planes!), activities (the best rafting of my life), relaxation (hot tubs every night) – I couldn’t have wished for anything more.
We were a very well taken care of and content group for that week we were camping along the river. The staff and guides once we were there were beyond incredible and were always ensuring that we were safe, prepared and having fun! It was bliss and I just had the best time! I came home feeling so reenergized and refreshed from this trip. When I got back people were saying that I was glowing (I think it was all the exercise and fresh mountain air). I would highly recommend this Patagonian adventure; you’ll get so much more out of it than you can imagine…it truly is a one of a kind experience! Buen Viaje!
An absolutely amazing trip! Patagonia, Chile and the Futaleufu river are stunning, and make for the perfect setting for this awesome adventure. The scenery is spectacular, the water is pristine and the rapids are exhilarating. Our guides and trip leaders were outstanding. Everyone was incredibly knowledgeable and professional, and always working to make our trip the best experience possible. The camps were spectacular – unique and ingeniously comfortable – and the food was of gourmet caliber! The time spent with the personal trainer was also great – detailed and thorough. The training program was personalized to our individual needs and the exercises that were provided really prepared us for the variety of challenging and incredible activities throughout the week. Definitely a trip of a lifetime and I would recommend it to anyone!
