MELBOURNE - Small group adventure travel operator G Adventures is strengthening sales activities across Asia after a record year for bookings from Asian travellers.

G Adventures director of emerging markets, Bryce Young will head up a team of six Global Purpose Specialists (GPS) throughout Asia.

“We consider adventure travel to be less about zip-lining and bungee jumping – although those are available on some of our itineraries, and more about cultural immersion that connects you with like-minded travellers,” Young said.

“G Adventures provides the structure and security for those of whom English is a second language, with the freedom and flexibility to still make the adventure their own.”  

Within Asia, the company has identified the key emerging markets for adventure travel to be Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, India, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan, with GPS serving each of these regions. 

Further down track it will expand to cover adventure travel in the Philippines and Indonesia.

In the past 12 months, the company has launched three new product styles in TailorMade, National Geographic Family Journeys and Wellness.

Founded in 1990 by social entrepreneur Bruce Poon Tip, G Adventures is Melbourne-based, offering more than 750 tours in 100 countries.
