Why choose Intrepid

Girl dancing at the Taj Mahal

Bucket list itineraries

Sure, you can travel to India to see the Taj Mahal, but we like to share a laugh with a local chai wallah in the market while we’re at it. Our trips include loads of big-ticket attractions, as well as plenty of unique and unexpected experiences that you can only have with a local guide.

Legendary leaders

The best folks to show you around are the ones who live there. Our local leaders know these destinations like an old friend, so get ready to eat at the best street food joints, stay with local families and experience things you wouldn’t be able to on your own.

Travel sustainably

We're on a mission to create positive change through the joy of travel. That’s why all of our trips are carbon offset and we give back to the communities we visit with the help of The Intrepid Foundation. When you travel with us, you travel with purpose.

Smallish groups

With an average group size of 10 people, our groups are big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to blend in with the locals. Whether you’re travelling solo or with mates, you’ll really get to know your crew and will never be stuck for someone to grab a drink with.

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 on our trips rooming is organised on a twin-share basis. We pair up solo travellers with another traveller of the same gender as per the gender marker on each of their passports. We also have an optional single supplement available on most trips for travellers who prefer to have their 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

Every time you book an 18 to 29s trip, you'll be planting 50 trees in the world's first travel-powered forest in Kenya.

Our planet is full of beautiful places and creatures that inspire us, but we need to preserve and restore them for the next generation. When you travel with us you'll be directly helping to regenerate the planet you've inherited, with the help of The Intrepid Foundation.
