You're never too old to play outside
Ditch the packed footpaths for dusty roads and head out on your next big adventure: a camping trip in the great outdoors. See the beauty of nature first-hand — and not through a bus window — as you trek to the famous Machu Picchu, sleep under the stars in the Aussie Outback, wake up to the animal sounds of the African wilderness, explore the captivating landscapes of the Canadian Rockies or discover the secrets of some of the USA's most famous national parks. Whether you’re excited to help set up camp or want to enjoy the creature comforts of premium accommodation in remote locations, our camping tours are for everyone from the first-timers to the tent enthusiasts (and everyone in between).

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards
From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises). However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.
At Intrepid, we define camping trips as trips where the majority of nights use camping for accommodation. These include trips in North America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Australia and along the Inca trail.
Most of our camping trips are in our Basix style; they keep things simple while promising an amazing trip experience for those on a budget. On our Basix style camping trips, you'll likely have to erect your own tent and pitch in around the campsite, including cooking meals and doing the washing up. However, we do have some camping trips in our Original, Comfort and Premium styles. These styles will often mean camping in pre-erected tents (by the crew) or permanent tented campsites.
On some trips, you will have to set up your own tent - these trips will often be part of our Basix style range. But don't worry if you've never done it before; your local leaders and expert guides (not to mention your friendly fellow travellers) will be around to give you a helping hand.
On some trips you will at times stay in unfenced campsites within National Parks. While this is a fantastic experience, there are a few safety rules to follow and it's important that you listen to any advice given by your leader and the park rangers regarding responsible and safe behaviour. This can include things like not leaving any meat or cooked food out overnight and cleaning up thoroughly before you leave the campsite.
We're committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. However, we’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
