The Gallipoli Peninsula is a significant place for Australians, New Zealanders and the Allied forces due to the significant military battle that occurred there in WW1. Every ANZAC Day (April 25th), a Dawn Service is conducted at the commemorative site to pay remembrance to those involved, especially the people that fought and the lives that were lost. Visit this poignant site during other times of the year in our Turkey tours and Short Breaks from Istanbul.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

A tour in Europe can vary depending on the countries you want to visit, the style of tour, and how long you want to go for but you can expect to pay anywhere between USD$1,000 to USD$5,000, with most tours around USD$2,500. 

Whether or not you need a visa to travel to European countries largely depends on the nationality on your passport and whether the country you're travelling to is part of the Schengen Agreement. This agreement sees 26 European countries offer visa-free travel to nationals from 60 other countries including Australia, the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. 

To determine whether the country you're travelling to requires a visa, head to the Schengen Visa's information website.
