Few destinations inspire passion like South America does – from the fiery Argentine tango to the misty Inca Trail.
Why choose Intrepid
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.
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.
Top trips in South America
Travelling with Intrepid through Peru was an incredible experience! Our guide looked for every opportunity to better tailor the tour to suit our group, and the local inclusions meant we got to know more of the Real Peru and created a more authentic experience.
