Is this trip right for you?
  • On Short Breaks, you maintain a level of independence and freedom, with the added bonus of having the details sorted out for you. You’ll have lots of free time, and a trip leader won’t accompany you. This means that all included activities and tours will be run by different local Intrepid partners, and these may operate independently from each other. The included activities and transfers will operate on a join-in basis, meaning you could have your Adventure all to yourself, or others may join you along the way. If you would prefer to travel in a group with a dedicated leader, just get in touch with your booking agent and they will take you through some alternatives.
