The way we see it, there are adventures, and then there are adventures. The kind where you trek through Kruger National Park – on foot – in search of lions, cheetahs and elephants, swim with whale sharks in Djibouti, or walk alongside Berber nomads through Morocco’s Atlas Mountains. Stuff you don’t find in your typical travel brochure. For us, adventures like this are at the heart of what it means to be Intrepid: something original, unexpected, and as far from ‘the usual’ as you’re going to get.

We’ve turned the world upside down and shaken it until the cool stuff falls out: like hiking Aconcagua, the Southern Hemisphere's highest peak, camping with indigenous reindeer herders in the Siberian Arctic, and watching kok buru at the Kyrgyzstan World Games

Wave goodbye to that beaten path. Say hello to our exclusive Expedition trips.

Expedition highlights in 2018

Stay in a traditional yurt.

Meet the Nenet tribe of Russia

Eking out a living on the edge of the Siberian wilderness, Nenet reindeer herders lead a rustic existence far from modern Russia. For the first time, this nomadic tribe is inviting travellers into their home to experience their way of life. Travel from St Petersburg to Salekhard and be hosted in traditional yurt huts, sweat it out in a Russian banya and try your hand fishing on the banks of Horomdo Lake.

Patagonia

Camp out in Patagonia

Curling south towards Antarctica, Patagonia is one of the few remaining tracts of unspoiled wildlife on Earth. Discover sprawling glaciers, mountains and wild pastures on a special expedition through Argentina and Chile, including visits to Tronador Volcano and Todos los Santos Lake. While you’ll spend days trekking through incredible landscapes, you’ll also camp on the homestead of a 200-year-old house and soothe your feet in natural thermal pools found deep in the Patagonian forest.

Plate up in the Caucasus

Italy, France and Greece might hog the gastronomic spotlight in Europe, but look a little further afield and you’ll find Armenia and Georgia can more than hold their own. Journey from Yerevan to Tbilisi and discover the centuries-old recipes that continue to thrive in this corner of Eastern Europe, with the opportunity to get hands on making Georgian dumplings and khachapuri (cheese-filled bread). With included visits to brandy distilleries, wineries and meals in family homes, this is an expedition crafted for adventurous foodies.

Journey to India’s edge

Everyone knows about the colourful chaos of Mumbai and New Delhi, but few visit the outer reaches of India’s wetlands and mountains.

Beginning and ending in Kolkata, this is a unique opportunity to explore West Bengal.

New Women's Expeditions

Women's Expeditions

We believe travel is for everyone. But in some more conservative countries, there are things mixed-gender groups just can’t do. What if, as a female traveller in Iran, you could head down to the beauty salon with your female leader and get your hair done? The hijab comes off, the conversation is lively, the music is on, and there’s a real chance to connect. These are our new expeditions breaking down cultural barriers and building bridges between women from around the world.
