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 is more relaxed, the accommodation is 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.
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.

Whoever said you have to rough it in the wilds? Wine, dine and recline in style, right in the centre of one of Tanzania’s most prized national parks.

Restored Polish Castle
Get a taste of the good life from the comfort of a restored castle in Gizycko, dating back to the 15th century. In the past, it's been used as a hunting lodge, museum and even military headquarters.
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 gender, 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.
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.
Several meals are included – all of your breakfasts along the way and then perhaps visits to some of our favourite restaurants with your group to get a taste of the region.
How we get around
Our Comfort trips mostly use private vehicles, though in some destinations we seek out unique modes of transport for speed and convenience.
This could be anything from a bullet train through the Japanese countryside, a traghetto ride on the canals of Venice or a sailing trip down the Nile River on a private felucca.
