G Adventures recognizes the importance of animal welfare. That’s why we have worked with experts from World Animal Protection, The Jane Goodall Institute and The World Cetacean Alliance to draw up a robust policy, which builds on the ABTA Global Welfare Guidelines for Animals in Tourism and puts the needs of animals first. We want to ensure that all animals featured on our tours are treated humanely.
It is critical that no child is ever harmed as a result of tourism. Travellers have the power and responsibility to make a true impact in the communities they visit, and that’s why we actively work to ensure child welfare is protected in the places we operate. We were also the first global travel company to achieve Friend’s International ChildSafe certification.
Respecting local cultures
Connecting curious travellers with Indigenous communities is an essential part of our identity at G Adventures. We are committed to respecting the rights, history, and culture of Indigenous people while ensuring that tourism supports their well-being.
Plastics Partnership Project
Plastic pollution is a huge global problem. G Adventures is working with our partners to eliminate as much single-use plastic on our tours as possible.
Traveller Conduct Policy
We believe travel should be a respectful, safe, and enjoyable experience for everyone. We’re a community of diverse individuals united by a profound respect for, and enthusiastic belief in, our values and each other. This unique combination of respect and enthusiasm prevents us from losing sight of what matters most – community, people, cultural exchange and inclusivity – and reminds us that creating happiness is a privilege we all share together. That’s why we have the Traveller Conduct Policy. This set of guidelines is designed to help establish a sense of safety, security, and happiness for all on any of our tours. This is inclusive of not only our travellers but also our staff members, partner suppliers, and the local people and cultures in the destinations we visit.
