For some, being Intrepid means crashing through the jungle in search of gorillas. For others, it’s trying street food for the first time, or bunking down on an overnight train with a dozen snoring strangers.

Whatever form it takes, Intrepid is an attitude – a willingness to take yourself far from the comforts of home, embrace difference and open yourself up to new cultures and experiences. To be curious, challenged, fearless, alive.  

At Intrepid, that’s what we live for. Our travellers choose to see the world in a way that builds human connection, supports local communities, respects the environment and draws us all a bit closer together.

Because now more than ever, the world needs more Intrepid people.

 

 

Ari and Tayla

As seasoned adventurers, it takes something unique to really rattle Ari and Tayla. Like the guttural growl of rare mountain gorillas hiding just out of sight, or the gaze of a silverback staring you down. But what starts as a hair-raising experience quickly becomes moving, as the two friends realise we have a closer connection with these vine-jumping, playful primates than we think.

Lorena

Much of what Lorena thought she knew about Iran came from news headlines painting the Middle East as a singular, unwelcoming place. But it turns out you shouldn’t believe everything you read. It was only when Lorena visited Iran for herself, experienced the depth of its culture and hospitality of its people, did she really start to scratch the surface and understand just what this country had to offer.

Be Fearless

Lauren

Courage isn’t the absence of fear, it’s action despite the presence of fear. For Lauren this meant setting off on an expedition to Patagonia on her own – without the comfort of knowing what to expect on the road. Shedding her doubts, she found new friends on an experience she’ll never forget.

Bec

As an actress, Bec’s life was a treadmill of auditions, classes and shows – who has time to travel with so much on the go? After hitting the pause button and booking a ticket to Vietnam, Bec discovered a spontaneousness and openness that can only come with the manic rush of Hanoi.

Mark

For Mark, international travel meant seeing the sights from his bus while touring with his band. The biggest challenge was finding something that would excite him mentally and physically after so many hours in airport lounges. That’s exactly what he got with Intrepid Travel.
