Our purpose

We’re here to create positive change through the joy of travel.

That's our mission. Because done right, we believe that travel can be a force for good.

Since the very beginning, we've been about giving back and running our trips in a way that respects local people and places.

When you travel with us, you'll quickly understand our trips are about more than good views and great times, they're about connecting to the places we go, the people we meet along the way and the communities at the heart of every Intrepid experience. That's where we try to make an impact.

Our impact

Wildlife and places

We travel with respect for the places we go – from the natural environments we explore to the wildlife that calls those places home. 

Though we've been carbon neutral since 2010, we know that's not enough. That’s why we have verifiable science-based targets to reduce our emissions and follow carefully crafted animal welfare guidelines.

People and communities

We think globally, act locally and engage personally. Basically, we’re a global collective that’s local at heart, with locally-based leaders out front of every trip and community-based tourism experiences on a number of adventures. 

From homestays to Indigenous community-led experiences, we look for opportunities to keep the economic benefits of travel where they belong.

What it means to be B Corp

We've always been about balancing purpose and profit, and in 2018, we joined the B Corp™ community to certify our commitment to using business as a force for good.  

Think of it like an independent global stamp of approval on the work we're doing and the impact we're making.

How The Intrepid Foundation gives back

For over 20 years, our not-for-profit, The Intrepid Foundation, has been giving Intrepid travellers a chance to make a bigger impact in the places they visit. Together we've raised more than $15.5 million and supported over 160 communities around the world.  

To double the difference, we dollar-match travellers’ donations and take care of all the admin fees.
