At Intrepid, the safety of our travellers, leaders and operators is a major priority. 

Since our very first days as a tour operator, travelling responsibly and safely has been at the heart of everything we do. With this in mind, we monitor world events very closely. Intrepid makes operational decisions based on informed advice from a number of sources.

Current travel alerts


Intrepid has accounted for all our customers and tour leaders in Jordan and our trips in Jordan (and related combination trips to Egypt and Jordan) continue to operate as normal, following airstrikes by Iran on Israel on 13 April.

Safety is Intrepid’s top priority and government travel advisories for Jordan from countries including Australia, the UK, Canada and the United States remain at the same level as before the airstrikes.  

Customers are advised to contact their Booking Agent with any questions regarding their upcoming travel to Jordan or Egypt.


A 7.5 magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Taiwan on 3 April 2024, resulting in some damage to infrastructure, particularly in Hualien County, including Taroko Gorge, in the east of the country. All Intrepid travellers who were in the country at the time are safe and accounted for. 

The following departures have been cancelled:


Rescue and reconstruction efforts continue in Hualien and Taroko Gorge is closed until further notice. The following departures will operate as scheduled on an amended itinerary, with the 2 nights in Hualien replaced with an additional night each in Yilan and Puli:


All affected customers have been contacted. We will continue to assess the situation on ground and advise should this itinerary change affect further departures.


Due to the ongoing conflict, we have cancelled all future travel to Israel & the Palestinian Territories. All affected customers will be contacted to discuss options and to assist with travel arrangements.
