Real Life Experiences

If you’re looking for adventure, you’ve come to the right place.


For the past 25 years, we’ve been taking small groups of travellers on unforgettable trips around the world.


What makes them unforgettable? We asked our friends at Perennial Plate to encapsulate what the Intrepid experience feels like, and we think they nailed it. Take a look for yourself and discover where our adventures could take you.

This is the first time I did a group trip. I am a big independent adventure traveller, but I would not have been able to do many of the experiences that we did on my own or in such an efficient manner. It was nice that I can spend as much or as little time with the group.
