G Adventures launches Montenegro and Indonesia, two brand new itineraries for 2017
G Adventures has announced a ‘first-of-its-kind’ sailing trip around the Montenegrin coastline, as well as a brand new sailing trip in Indonesia; starting on the well-known holiday island of Bali, then sailing through the more serene and secluded Gili Islands.
The two new trips bring the number of sailing destinations offered by the leading small group adventure operator to seven, with Montenegro and Indonesia joining the British Virgin Islands, Croatia, Cuba, Greece and Thailand in G Adventures’ sailing portfolio.
A sailing trip is a great holiday option for travellers looking to do as much or as little as they like, says G Adventures’ global sailing manager, Vince Donnelly.
“Some travellers are keen to learn the ‘ins and outs’ of sailing from our team of experienced skippers, whereas others are happy to relax and watch the world go by, before arriving to their next port of call or barely inhabited island.
“While we sell a set itinerary, it’s up to the skipper and the group if they fancy taking a detour to a special island off the beaten track for a picnic on the beach, which is what makes G Adventures’ sailing tours so popular,” says Donnelly.
The new boat in Montenegro takes eight travellers and is led by a dedicated skipper and a CEO (chief experience officer) who offers local knowledge and insight. The larger catamaran in Indonesia carries 12 travellers, a skipper, CEO, and also has a cook to whip up locally-flavoured dishes on board.
The new trips are as follows:
· An eight-day Montenegro Sailing trip, starting and ending in Dubrovnik, is priced from £869pp*. Travellers will witness dramatic scenery and impressive Balkan landscapes as they move south along the Dalmatian coast, checking out an ancient fishing village, UNESCO World Heritage site, and the area’s most beautiful beaches for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing. Those looking to dance should save some energy for Budva, which is known as the regional capital of nightlife. Departs weekly from May 27 to August 19, 2017.
· A seven-day Sailing Indonesia trip, starting and ending in Bali, is priced from £1,099pp. Travellers will sail the beautiful coastlines of Bali and Lombok enjoying the vistas from the deck of a catamaran. This seven-day sailing adventure introduces travellers to the fabulous Gili Islands in a weeklong immersion of snorkelling excursions, kayaking tours, beachfront bars, and yoga sessions. Departs weekly from July 09 to November 19, 2017.
