And launches early booking bonus for Norway and Arctic itineraries
G Adventures is introducing three new itineraries in Norway on board its expedition ship, G Expedition, in May 2017, following consumer demand for cruises in the area.
The adventure operator is also offering a 15 per cent early booking bonus for these trips, as well as all other 2017 Longyearbyen and Svalbard itineraries, to encourage travellers to book early and secure their preferred itinerary, date and cabin category.
Adrian Piotto, Managing Director G Adventures Australia and New Zealand, says travelling Norway by ship is one of the best and most cost-effective ways to see the country.
"Norway has long been popular with travellers from New Zealand and Australia because of the stunning natural wonders the country has to offer. On board the G Expedition travellers have the benefit of seeing the fjords in comfort, with G Adventures' team of expert expedition guides there to provide a greater understanding of the nature and wildlife in the area."
"It is a stunning part of the world, and perfectly fitted for expedition cruising. With these new itineraries travellers have even more ways to explore Norway."
The early booking discount is valid for all bookings made before June 30, 2016 and applies to all Norwegian and Artic itineraries departing between May 11, 2017 and August 11, 2017.
