Every Intrepid small group adventure has been carefully designed to make sure you have an unforgettable, grassroots travel experience. Over the years, we've developed several trip styles and trip themes to cater for a diverse range of travellers. Take a look below to find out what your ideal Intrepid adventure might look like.
For travellers on a budget, our Basix trips keep inclusions to a minimum. They’re about value and lots of free time to choose the activities and extras that you want to do.
The classic Intrepid style. These trips come with some included activities and stay at more hotels than Basix trips. The perfect choice for those who want a taste of everything.

Designed for those who want more inclusions, our Comfort trips offer a higher standard of accommodation, larger, roomier vehicles and more included activities.

Physical and Cultural Ratings
Physical ratings – tell you how physically exerting a trip is, and how fit you will need to be to enjoy it.
A rating of 1 = easy and relaxing
A rating of 3 = an average level of fitness required
A rating of 5 = full-on, active adventure for the most agile travellers
Cultural ratings – give you an idea of the level of culture shock to expect, and how much adjustment is required.
A rating of 1 = little or no adjustment
A rating of 3 = some unusual food and language barriers
A rating of 5 = expect a real culture shock
For every type of traveller
Whether you are travelling solo or as part of a ready-formed group of your own, Intrepid small group adventures adapt to suit you.
Solo traveller? No worries. There's no extra charge on our Basix trips when you share accommodation with a group member of the same sex. Or if you'd prefer your own room, we offer a single supplement on most of our Original and Comfort itineraries.
If you're part of a group who are looking for their next unforgettable escape, all of our trips are available to book as a private departure. We can also tailor a trip specifically to your requirements – school groups, specific interests or groups with particular needs.
For the independent at heart, we’re delighted to add a new style of travel to our range this year: Independent Journeys.
We’ve offering a number of our Comfort-style trips as private adventures for just two people – meaning you get the same exceptional itinerary all to yourselves with none of the hassles of organising it. So while you won’t be part of a small group or be accompanied by a leader throughout the duration of your trip, you will be met in each location by one of our knowledgeable local guides and have all your accommodation and local transport organised for you.
So get out there and enjoy the world on your own terms – and we’ll do the rest.
Our small group style of travel means you’ll stay under the radar, travel the local way, eat the local way and sleep the local way.
Small groups, big adventures.
