Adventure travel redefined.
Over 30 years ago, Intrepid was formed by a group of friends road-tripping through Africa in a modified ex-council truck. With that same wide-eyed thirst for discovery, we created Expeditions: our most unique range of trips that bring you to often overlooked, off-the-grid, far-from-the-usual destinations. All it takes is an expert local leader, like-minded travellers and a healthy sense of adventure to find your perfect Intrepid Expedition.
Go off the grid in Pakistan
Take your thirst for adventure into unchartered territory on our brand-new 15-day expedition through Pakistan. Ensuring you see the real and unfiltered parts of this captivating country, this tour will take you from Islamabad to the Hunza Valley and back down to Lahore where you’ll discover breathtaking natural landscapes, meet local families, wander around ancient monuments, and dine on traditional food your tastebuds are sure to love.

Create your own Expedition
There aren't many places Intrepid hasn't been, so even if you've got a destination in mind that isn't on our list of Expeditions, our Tailor-Made team is here to help. We'll use our 30 years of experience and regional specialists to help you create your perfect adventure.
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.
Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.
An Expedition style trip is one that visits distant and often overlooked destinations with the idea of taking 'adventure travel' to a whole 'nother level. These trips will likely include active activities like hiking as well as community-based activities, local village visits and traditional festivals.
Think trips in remote countries, meals cooked by local families and cultural practices you'll never have heard of but won't easily forget.
Expedition trips may feature a variety of authentic accommodation experiences, including camping, multi-share and homestays. Due to the nature of the destinations these trips go to, the choice of accommodation can be limited, but just remember... it's all part of the adventure.
You can enjoy Expedition trips with a reasonable level of fitness, however, some trips may have included or optional activities that fall under a higher physical rating. Read your trip itinerary carefully and communicate any concerns you may have to your leader as soon as possible - you can always opt out of any activities that you're not comfortable with during your trip.
Expedition trip itineraries can also be faster-paced (multiple 1 night stops) and include long-haul overland travel so keep that in mind when choosing the right trip for you.
What you should pack and how much you should pack will differ depending on which country/s your Expedition trip visits but keep in mind that on some Expedition trips you'll be expected to carry your own bag/luggage so it's best to keep the weight under 10kg / 22lb.
You should always pack a pair of comfortable walking shoes, plenty of layers (clothing items such as long-sleeve tops, cardigans, jumpers, and coats), waterproof clothing, and a day bag/backpack for day trips and activities.
Absolutely. All passengers travelling with Intrepid are required to purchase travel insurance before the start of their tour. Your travel insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day of the trip. Due to the varying nature, availability and cost of health care around the world, travel insurance is very much an essential and necessary part of every journey.

Intrepid is committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability. That’s why we do our best to help as many people see the world as possible, regardless of any physical or mental limitations they might have. We’re always happy to talk to travellers with disabilities and see if we can help guide them towards the most suitable itinerary for their needs and, where possible, make reasonable adjustments to our itineraries.
If you do live with a visual, hearing or other impairment, let your booking agent or group leader know early on so they’re aware and suitable arrangements can be made. As a general rule, knowing some common words in the local language, carrying a written itinerary with you and taking to the streets in a group, rather than solo, can help make your travel experience the best it can be.
