Intrepid Travel knows adventure travel inside out. Our style of small group, authentic travel means you'll eat, sleep and get around the local way. With three travel styles to choose from, our trips strike the perfect balance between included activities and 'you time', and cater to a range of budgets. Plus you'll have the knowledge of a local leader, taking you out of the guidebooks and into a world you're waiting to discover.

Intrepid Travel has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 1989. A company that began with two bearded backpackers, a typewriter and a kitchen table now leads 100,000 travellers across the globe each year. Although we’re a bit larger these days – with 1,000's of local staff based around the world and over 800 different trips across every continent – our mission remains the same. We still get a kick out of responsible travel, small groups and very big adventures.

 

Why travel with Intrepid

  • Real life experiences - travel off the beaten path and find real life expeiences you won't find in a search engine
  • A strong commitment to Responsible Travel - we know the world's a pretty amazing place, and we want to do our bit to keep it that way
  • Pioneered local leaders - we realised early on that the best folks to show you the heart of a destination are, funnily enough, the ones that live there
  • Our trips are for everyone - our mission is to deliver the best travel experiences to anyone who's up for them, no matter if you favour a soft landing or a wild take-off, Intrepid stands for you
  • Travel connects people - the beauty of small group travel isn't just new places, it's new perspectives.  It's the stories you hear and the friendships you forge, the ones that stick around long after the tan has faded
  • Travel works best when it's balanced - our trips are built with balance in mind, a little group time, a little you time - the way it should be.  And because our tours have an average of just 10 people, there's more of the world to go round

Eat, travel and sleep the local way

All our guides are experts in their destinations. They are passionate about pointing travellers towards hidden secrets most tourists don't get to see and sharing their favourite local foodie spots.

Intrepid Travel believes that getting from A to B should be half the fun of your tour. We often use private transport alternatives, but often include some local transport when it adds to the flavour of the destination.

Accommodation during your Intrepid tour is all about being immersed in the local culture. Whether it's a homestay in a small rural village or a centrally located hotel in the middle of a big city, it will always be an ideal base from which to truly experience the region.

 
 

Thousands of adventures in over 100 countries

With so many destinations on the Intrepid roster – it’s hard to choose where to go. Why not leave it up to those who’ve tried and tested them? Some of Intrepid travellers’ favourite trips include Morocco, Cambodia, Africa’s Masai heartlands, and adventure sailing off the coast of Croatia.
 
 Intrepid creates new itineraries every year, so you might find yourself drawn to a Real Food Adventure in Jordan or a cycling trip in the Baltics. The passion and local experienc of your tour leader will ensure whichever trip you chosse is one you'll never forget.

Japan Express

"This intrepid tour is perfect for first time travellers who want guidance in experiencing and exploring three vast, contrasting areas of Japan. With optional activities you can pack in as much or as little as you want and get to socialise as a group over great local food."

Myanmar Experience

"Intrepid trips are so well organised, so thoughtful of the country you are travelling through, and mindful of the people that live there. It has been my experience that the tour leaders that Intrepid employ are absolute gems. Our tour leader for Myanmar was Naing, he showed us his country in such an informative, graceful and reverent way that we could not help but fall in love with this country and its people. Well done Intrepid!"

Iran Adventure

"Iran is a unique and amazing destination and I was glad to have gone with Intrepid. Most itineraries cover the same places, but what makes Intrepid's itinerary unique is the nomad stay and night at the Caravanserai - these were highlights of the trip. The trip also strikes a good balance between guided time and free time - in a country like Iran, where interacting with locals is incredibly rewarding, I was glad to have the opportunity to explore by myself. Recommend Iran 100%!"

Iceland Discovery

"Intrepid allowed us to experience Iceland in a way most people who stop in on a cruise never can. We covered nearly the whole country in 10 days and each day was filled with unforgettable moments."
