G Adventures is launching a brand new collection of tours dedicated to wellness, designed to help travellers slow down, find their balance and reconnect with the world and themselves.

The new wellness trips will unfold in 10 destinations including Nepal, Costa Rica, Iceland, Patagonia, Tuscany and Peru, ranging from seven to 13 days.

Travellers can expect to join in local rituals such as a purification bath in Bali, a prayer ceremony with monks in Nepal and an ashram stay in India.

G Adventures Managing Director Australia and New Zealand Adrian Piotto said now is the perfect time to launch into the wellness space as more people look to combine their healthy lifestyle with travel.

“The wellness industry has skyrocketed in recent years. According to the Global Wellness Institute, the wellness industry is now worth 3.7 trillion USD globally, with consumers seeking new ways to alleviate stress, reduce illness and boost wellbeing.”

The wellness trips will be centred around the three pillars of mindfulness, movement, and nourishment.

Some examples of the new itineraries include Wellness Bali, a nine-day tour taking in some of Bali’s most ancient spiritual sites and wellness rituals. From the Hindu temple of Tirta Empul, where travellers will purify themselves a traditional holy bath, to discovering the secrets of “Boreh”, the island’s traditional herbal medicine.

Another is Wellness Colombia, an eight-day tour which includes sampling local flavours on a street food tour in Cartagena, spending a day hiking into Tayrona National Park and wandering through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada to the Aluna Springs to enjoy a guided meditation next to a waterfall.
