Explore travel's softer side
By smoothing away some of adventure travel’s rougher edges, we’ve crafted a style of travel that minimises the occasional discomforts without sacrificing any of the thrills. We like to think of our comfort range as offering the same real life experiences that our whole ethos is founded upon – just with a softer landing.
What is Comfort travel?
‘Comfort travel’ means encountering all that the real world has to offer, but with an added degree of, well… comfort. We use more private transport, the travel pace more relaxed, the accommodation a touch nicer. And by paying more up front, you’ll be treated to more included meals, more leader-led activities and get a greater immersion in all things local.
Intrepid Comfort trips are operated in conjunction with our sister company, Peregrine Adventures. With over 37 years experience in the adventure travel industry, Peregrine shares our philosophy of small group, responsible travel that benefits local communities and provides a more immersive experience for you.
What is the accommodation like?
Where we stay ensures we keep our travellers firmly entrenched in a region’s people and culture, and provides them with unique local experiences that benefits the community too. In most locations we stay in comfortable hotels, though on most of our trips we also get to stay a night or two in some pretty special feature stays on most trips.
Costa Rican Jungle Lodge
Get back to nature in style at a jungle escape that will see you bedding down in a palm-thatched bungalow offering 360-degree views of the surrounding rainforest.
I'm travelling solo
Great! You're about to join a small group adventure and meet a bunch of potential new friends who want to explore the same destination as you. There’s no extra charge when you share accommodation with a member of the same sex, but if you’d like a little more privacy with a room all to yourself, there's a single supplement available on most Comfort trips.
What else is included in the price?
In addition to accommodation, we also include all transport plus:
The passion of our local leaders is what makes Intrepid’s trips so special. You’ll have a highly experienced leader with invaluable local knowledge who’ll be there for you every step of the way. Meet our leaders
Our Comfort-style trips follow a more structured itinerary and feature more included activities. This leaves you to reap the benefits of more time in the company of a local leader – and their local knowledge.
Some meals are included – all of your breakfasts along and then perhaps visits to some of our favourite restaurants with your group to get a taste of the region.
Think about what your first meal's going to be, rather than how you're going to get from the airport to your hotel. We've got you covered with complimentary arrival transfers for the majority of our Comfort trips.
Transport - how we get around
Our Comfort trips mostly use private vehicles, though we do seek out unique modes of transport for speed and convenience. So here are a few of the more interesting modes you may find yourself travelling on:
