At Planeterra, we know the places you visit during your travels can be life-changing. Whether you connect with the landscape, the people, the wildlife or just the energy of a certain spot, it can have a profound and lasting effect, and inspire a yearning to look after that place for years to come. Our mission is to reach out to committed travelers, organizations and global citizens like you to make a donation and invest in sustainable solutions to support the places you love.
We believe that by connecting people whose lives have been inspired to create change, with local people and organizations capable of enacting these changes, we can make a true and lasting impact. The power of the travel and tourism industry combined with the energy and inspiration of concerned global citizens can be the driving force needed to preserve and enhance the world’s most beautiful, but imperiled places.

Ask your G Adventures' agent how you can make a small contribution to the communities we travel and work by with by adding $3 to your booking, or consider adding a Dollar-A-Day when booking your trip online. When booking a tour with G online, you can donate one dollar per day for the duration of your tour, and your funds will go directly to the people and places that you connect with on the trip. (Note: the donation will be charged in the currency of your booking).
How can you give back to the places you love? Have you thought of starting a social media campaign among your friends and coworkers, or coordinating a run, an auction or a dinner party?
