18 to 35s tours

POV: the trip actually made it out of the group chat

Move over rigid schedules and all-night partying – our 18 to 35s trips are designed for the next generation of socially conscious explorers. Swap the typical tourist spots for authentic experiences while stretching your precious travel budget a little further. Think: must-sees like Egypt's pyramids, off-the-beaten-path adventures like camping in the Sahara, plus plenty of free time to roam on your own. So, whether you're the photo friend back home who knows all the best angles, the playlist friend who’s got the bops queued up, or the friend who already knows what rooftop restaurant will have the best sunset view tonight, consider us the planner friend who takes care of all the logistics. Get ready to connect with your new crew of travel besties.

Where you can go

Why choose us

Bucket list itineraries

Our trips include big-ticket attractions as well as unexpected experiences that you can only find with a local leader. So, while you'll definitely check the Taj Mahal off the list, sharing a laugh with a local chai wallah in the back alleys of Delhi might be the memory that stays with you the longest.

Great value

Want big-time adventures without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 35s trips use local transport, stay in simple accommodations and have fewer inclusions to create a more affordable experience. That way, you can choose how to spend your travel budget and free time. 

Small groups

With an average group size of 10 people, our groups are big enough to create a good vibe but small enough to blend in with the locals. Whether you’re traveling solo or with friends, you’ll really get to know your group and will never be stuck for someone to grab a drink with.

Legendary leaders

The best people to show you around are the ones who live there, and our local leaders know all the best bars, street food stalls, photo ops and secret spots. Consider your leader like an old friend who is psyched to share their culture with you.

Safety

We're committed to ensuring our trips are safe for everyone, including our travelers, leaders, crew and the communities we visit along the way. We're always up to date with world events and changes, so your friends and fam can rest easy knowing that you'll be well taken care of. 

Creating positive change

We're on a mission to create positive change through the joy of travel. That’s why all our trips are carbon offset, and we give back to the communities we visit with the help of The Intrepid Foundation. When you travel with us, you travel with purpose.

The people who make our trips great

Intrepid Leader Nhi Pham, Vietnam
Nhi Pham, Vietnam

"When you travel with me we'll be hanging out with the locals, tucking into the best street food and trying to master Vietnamese pronunciation (FYI, it's hard!). Whatever we do, we'll laugh a lot and make amazing memories together. Pack your best smile and count on me for the rest – I'll be your local buddy."

Intrepid Leader Paul Garrido, Peru
Paul Garrido, Peru

“It will be a pleasure to share our traditions and beliefs, take you to the most amazing sites and, most importantly, interact with the locals! Get ready for a behind-the-scenes tour where we’ll visit hole-in-the-wall restaurants and find the best picarones (Andean doughnuts) *chef’s kiss. I’ll be waiting for you here, in my beloved Peru."

Intrepid leader Huyen Nguyen
Huyen Nguyen, Vietnam

"You might come to Vietnam for the beautiful scenery, but you'll stay for the friendly people! I love introducing travellers to locals and having a chit-chat, going on spontaneous walks to explore the hidden spots and sharing stories to keep our beautiful culture alive."

One Week in the Greek Islands

Georgia · Traveled June 2024
I can’t recommend this trip enough. Initially, I was anxious in a new place, but all of my fears quickly subsided as I formed new friendships and felt more confident and comfortable under the guidance of our group leader, Evelina, who was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the local culture and history and always communicated this knowledge to us. Evelina was always organised and made us feel comfortable, even when group members would experience logistical issues during the trip, she always did everything she could to find solutions for us. My knowledge of the areas I visited has improved significantly, along with my independence and confidence while travelling.
