Discovery Adventures travel company debuts 2011's Discovery Channel-inspired trips
Discovery Adventures has teamed up with adventure travel industry leader Gap Adventures and non-profit Planeterra to offer travelers more opportunities to positively impact the lives of communities around the world. Each trip provides travelers with an opportunity to visit destinations (often traveling by traditional modes of transport such as rickshaw or elephant) and interact with local people in an ecologically-responsible manner. In addition to your guide, you'll be accompanied by local historians, archaeologists, artisans, and naturalists. Time to get off that Barcalounger!
