-- The countries G Adventures
will visit for the first time in 2013 are: Albania, Australia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Iceland, Montenegro, New Zealand, Scotland, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Sweden.
Michael Edwards, managing director, G Adventures, says the extended programme is a perfect mix of new far-flung destinations as well as some that are less-travelled and closer to home.
"G Adventures is known for uncovering new destinations and offering life-changing experiences by giving travellers real insight into people and cultures. This continues as we venture into West Africa with a brand new Sierra Leone adventure, and expand our land-based trips in Eastern Europe."
New trip itineraries for 2013 include:

trip gives travellers the opportunity to experience life in a village, taste local cuisine, trek through the rainforest looking for monkeys and to explore historic Freetown. Priced from GBP1,499pp* for departures in November and December 2013.
- A 14-day Cultural Sri Lanka
trip travelling from Negombo to Colombo sees travellers visit an elephant sanctuary, watch stilt fishermen in Galle, gain insight into the national heritage at a tea plantation and relax on pristine beaches. Priced from GBP1,279pp for departures in March and April, and from September to December 2013. This trip was also designed by one of G Adventures' CEOs.
- The 15-day Croatia and the Balkans
itinerary travels through Serbia on its route from Budapest to Split where it visits the capital of Belgrade, also known as the 'White City'.
