The word ‘adventure’ gets thrown around a lot these days. But the way we see it, there are adventures, and there are Adventures. The kind where you visit a Russian shuttle launch in Kazakhstan or run a marathon over the Great Wall of China. Stuff you don’t find in your typical travel brochure. For us, adventures like this are at the heart of what it means to be Intrepid: something original, unexpected, and as far from ‘the usual’ as you’re going to get.

This year we’ve pulled out all the stops. We’ve turned the world upside down and shaken it until all the cool stuff falls out: stuff like a groundbreaking itinerary in the republic of Transnistria (it’s in Eastern Moldova), searching for snow leopards in Ladakh, white water rafting in Bhutan and camping with Nenets people in the Russian arctic

Welcome to our exclusive Expedition trips for 2016 & 2017. Wave goodbye to that beaten path.

Returning favourites

We launched Expedition trips for the first time in 2015, and they were a raging success. So we decided to bring a few of the favourites back: an adventure through the meadows and monasteries of Kosovo, an Indiana Jones-style quest through the Mexican jungle and a trip to Georgia’s remote (and spectacular) Svaneti region. Book quick – these fill up fast.

Exploratory sailing trips

Sailors have been going on intrepid expeditions for hundreds of years. And just because we’ve done away with the scurvy and sea battles, it doesn’t mean we can’t chase some horizons of our own. This year you can go whale watching off the coast of Tonga, explore Cambodia’s tiny island chains and set sail through the Dry Tortugas. All aboard.
