Travel might be good for the soul, but these wellness experiences take it just one step further.
For us, wellness is about transforming yourself (for the better) through real life travel experiences. It might entail spending time practicing yoga in an Indian Ashram, nourishing your body with the delights of a Mediterranean diet in Greece or summiting a mountain in Morocco. Go beyond the standard wellness retreat in favour of experiences that’ll not only broaden your knowledge of the world but enrich your travels in more ways than one. So, whether wellness is about your mind, body or stomach, choose an adventure that has the right balance for you.
Introducing Intrepid Retreats
Local travel gives you the extra time to slow down and reconnect with your body and mind. That’s why we’ve created Intrepid Retreats, a brand-new way to discover incredible places just a few hours drive or a short flight away. Just unpack your bag once and focus on yourself and surrounds with local host lead activities like walks, yoga, surfing and cycling. Intrepid Retreats bring wellness close to home.

Why choose Intrepid
Our groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring independently but big enough to have a good time. Group numbers will vary, but the average is about 10. We’ve found that’s a great number to help you connect other travellers, without feeling like you’re just a face in a crowd.
The best folk to show you the heart of a destination are the ones that live there, which is why we work exclusively with local leaders. Our leaders are not just travel experts, but they’re also your teacher, travel guru and enthusiastic purveyor of grassroots wellness experiences.
At Intrepid, we’ve made a commitment to being a responsible business – for example, we carbon offset all our trips, were the first travel company in the world to ban elephant rides and have removed all orphanage visits from our itineraries. So, when you enjoy a wellness experience with us, you’ll feel good in mind, body, soul and conscience!
Enjoy local produce in Tasmania
The best tasting – and best for you – food comes straight from the producer. So on your Intrepid Retreat hidden away in Tasmania's Bay of Fires, after days of morning yoga and walks along the beach, settle around a campfire and feast on dinners of locally sourced produce, prepared by an award-winning local chef.
Surf in Costa Rica
Breaking a sweat and harnessing the power of feel-good endorphins doesn’t need to be hard work. Take learning to surf in Costa Rica, for example. Even if you’re a total beginner, why not challenge yourself physically and conquer a new skill while soaking up some sun with a bunch of new friends.
Reconnect body and soul in Bali
Bali might like a party, but its rest and relaxation side is what we're after. Get to the heart of it all on a mindful journey with included yoga and meditation classes. But unlike a traditional yoga retreat, you can embrace the chance to mingle with locals, learn about the culture and participate in a cooking class. Consider it a much-needed wellness experience, but with an Intrepid twist.
Trek to Mt Toubkal
Transformational, life-changing experiences across the world come in all shapes and sizes. But there’s something to be said about summiting one of the great peaks North Africa that’s rewarding in more ways than one. If a physical challenge is your idea of an experience that satisfies your mind, body and soul, set your sights on a trek up Mt Toubkal in Morocco.
