Create positive change through the joy of travel.
That's our mission. It’s been on a journey, while staying true to itself – just like us.
Since the very beginning we’ve seen travel as a force for good.
Over 30 years later, we’re super proud to be a certified B Corp. We’re here to give back – and have a great time while doing it.
We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.
Here are just some of the headlines:
Our purpose is to inspire, create, share and lead the best travel experiences ever. We recognise that our business creates negative environmental and social impacts, including producing emissions that contribute to global warming. That's why we’ve been carbon-neutral since 2010, carbon offset all our trips and have a seven-point commitment plan that supports our Climate Emergency declaration. We are the first global tour operator with verifiable science-based targets through the Science Based Targets initiative, to limit global warming to 1.5C in the next decade. We’re here to find solutions.
It's an independent global stamp of approval of the work we already do – like evolving to be more inviting, inclusive, engaging and you-friendly with our new Ethical Marketing Guidelines. It's all backed up by our vision of changing the way we all see the world.
COMMUNITIES WE VISIT
Our purpose is totally tied to our product (that's our trips). We're all about using our trips as a force for good, as well as good times. We're genuinely connected to and invested in the places we go, the people we meet along the way, and the communities at the heart of every Intrepid experience. We think globally, act locally, and engage personally.
With our legendary local leaders out front and each of our trips supporting an Intrepid Foundation partner, we’re a global collective that's local at heart. From community-based tourism to new experiences that support First Nations and Indigenous communities around the world, we strive to give back locally. Get out there and see it.
Our not-for-profit, The Intrepid Foundation, was born in 2002 to give Intrepid travellers a chance to make a bigger impact in the communities they visit. Over the last 20 years, our travellers have helped raise more than AUD 14 million and supported over 160 communities around the world.
We make a donation to an Intrepid Foundation partner on behalf of every traveller on our Intrepid multi-day trips. Plus, we take care of the admin fees, so 100% of donations go where they're needed most.
That’s just a snapshot of the work we do beyond creating and leading the best travel experiences ever. From giving back to local communities to positively affecting the environment, we have a powerful impact on the planet and its people. Equality, animal welfare, reconciliation and more, we are dedicated to sustainability in all its forms.
We’re here – and here to do good – for both people and the planet. Find out more:
