Why choose us

Make the most of your time

Want to level up your getaway? Short breaks are the ideal way to get the most out of your valuable time. They're loaded with value, take the hassle out of planning and help you squeeze every last drop out of your next trip away. You'll most likely travel on a join-in basis, which means you may or may not be joined by others for activities and transportation, depending on demand.

You’re in good hands

We know the best local suppliers and experts on the ground to give you an exciting and safe experience, meaning you won’t miss out on highlights just because you’re short on time. And don’t worry, there’s still free time for independent discoveries if there’s a restaurant or activity you’ve got your eye on.

Sustainable Travel

Since we started running small group tours over 30 years ago, we’ve known travel can be a force for good. That’s why we choose to give back to the communities we visit, carbon offset all our trips and take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously. We’ve been officially certified as the world’s largest travel B Corp, which means when you choose Intrepid Travel, you can rest assured you’re travelling responsibly.

Easter Island (Rapa Nui) Short Break

Kathleen · Traveled May 2024
Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is definitely a place to see. The island history and seeing the multitude of moai is thorough.

Buenos Aires Short Break

Leeann · Traveled March 2024
This trip is a perfect way to begin a trip to Buenos Aires or Argentina generally. A great balance of time on my own to explore, and a city tour with guide and the asado dinner. Both the city tour with Marianna and Diego, and the asado dinner on the rooftop terrace were fabulous. I love Buenos Aires!

Patagonia Short Break - Torres Del Paine

Catherine · Traveled February 2024
Nice activities, but the trip is not necessarily the best value for money you can find. The insistence on including a bus ticket to Calafate in the itinerary is a bit of a mystery since many people can't use it.
