Why choose Intrepid

Girl dancing at the Taj Mahal

The ultimate adventures

Sure, you can travel to India to see the Taj Mahal, but sharing a laugh with a chai wallah in the local market is just as memorable. That’s why we’ve included the big-ticket items, as well as plenty of off-the-grid experiences and free time.

Leader talking to two travellers in Egypt

Local leaders, local connections

Travelling with an experienced leader means you can just enjoy the moment, rather than worrying about when the last train leaves! They’ll give you unique insights and take you to places that only the locals know about.

Group of travellers cheers drinks in Budapest

Small (but not too small) groups

Our groups are made up of 10 travellers on average. That’s big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to explore a destination independently. And if you’re travelling solo, it’s the perfect number of new friends.

Traveller in Iceland sitting in a National Park

A sustainable way to travel

We believe that travelling sustainably is important. Through our not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects around the world – from reducing carbon in the environment to supporting the livelihoods of local communities.

Felucca full of travellers

Stay real in cool places

We think where you lay your head at night can be just as cool as what you see during the day. Whether that be sleeping in a jungle lodge in the Amazon, camping under the stars in Utah or snoozing down the Nile on a traditional felucca in Egypt.

Traveller ziplining in Cambodia

Make your money go further

You want big-time experiences without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 29s travel style means staying in simple, well-located accommodation, taking local transport and enjoying tasty local food, so you choose where your spending money goes.

Inclusions

Leader icon

Local leaders with tips and advice.

Accommodation icon

A comfy place to stay each night.

Shoe icon

Transport to get you from A to B.

Legendary local leaders

As the local experts in each destination, your leader can connect you with experiences you wouldn’t have on your own and make sure you get from A to B smoothly.

Ultimate itineraries

We include both iconic and unexpected experiences in our trips. This means you’ll see the big-ticket attractions of a destination, plus enjoy some surprising local moments too.

Simple, well-located accommodation

All your accommodation is taken care of and rooms are normally twin share. If you’re a solo traveller, you’ll be paired with another solo traveller of the same gender at no extra cost. If you like your privacy, sometimes you’ll have the chance to pay a single supplement for your own room.

Local, sustainable transport

Getting from one place to another each day is included in your trip experience. We like to do things the local way, which can mean anything from Japanese bullet train to a Thai tuk tuk.

A brand-new crew

Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends from home, you’ll never be travelling alone. With an average group size of 10 people, you’ll never be lacking a dinner buddy or someone to snap a photo of you.

Plenty of downtime

We know you want to choose your own adventure sometimes, which is why our trips have plenty of built-in free time. Your local leader will be full of good ideas for epic ways to fill it.

Reviews

Travel for good

We want every 18 to 29s adventurer to be a part of our mission to combat poverty, which is why we’re making a contribution to Friends International for every 18 to 29s trip booked.  Friends International is a leading social enterprise saving lives and building futures for marginalised young people through education. With your help, The Intrepid Foundation has already contributed more than $100,000 dollars towards vocational training programs such as hospitality, welding and sewing.

This change means that by 2020, we’ll donate at least $250,000 to Friends International and other projects that help marginalised young men and women in the places we visit.
