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.
