Why choose Intrepid

Girl dancing at the Taj Mahal

The ultimate adventures

Sure, you can travel to India to see the Taj Mahal, but sharing a laugh with a chai wallah in the local market is just as memorable. That’s why we’ve included the big-ticket items, as well as plenty of off-the-grid experiences and free time.

Leader talking to two travellers in Egypt

Local leaders, local connections

Travelling with an experienced leader means you can just enjoy the moment, rather than worrying about when the last train leaves! They’ll give you unique insights and take you to places that only the locals know about.

Group of travellers cheers drinks in Budapest

Small (but not too small) groups

Our groups are made up of 10 travellers on average. That’s big enough to create a good vibe, but small enough to explore a destination independently. And if you’re travelling solo, it’s the perfect number of new friends.

A sustainable way to travel

We believe that travelling sustainably is important. Through our not-for-profit The Intrepid Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects around the world – from reducing carbon in the environment to supporting the livelihoods of local communities.

Felucca full of travellers

Stay real in cool places

We think where you lay your head at night can be just as cool as what you see during the day. Whether that be sleeping in a jungle lodge in the Amazon, camping under the stars in Utah or snoozing down the Nile on a traditional felucca in Egypt.

Make your money go further

You want big-time experiences without the big-time price tag? Our 18 to 29s travel style means staying in simple, well-located accommodation, taking local transport and enjoying tasty local food, so you choose where your spending money goes.

Legendary local leaders

Ultimate itineraries

We include both iconic and unexpected experiences in our trips. This means you’ll see the big-ticket attractions of a destination, plus enjoy some surprising local moments too.

Simple, well-located accommodation

All your accommodation is taken care of and on our trips rooming is organised on a twin-share basis. We pair up solo travellers with another traveller of the same gender as per the gender marker on each of their passports. We also have an optional single supplement available on most trips for travellers who prefer to have their own room. 

Local, sustainable transport

Getting from one place to another each day is included in your trip experience. We like to do things the local way, which can mean anything from Japanese bullet train to a Thai tuk tuk.

A brand-new crew

Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends from home, you’ll never be travelling alone. With an average group size of 10 people, you’ll never be lacking a dinner buddy or someone to snap a photo of you.

Plenty of downtime

We know you want to choose your own adventure sometimes, which is why our trips have plenty of built-in free time. Your local leader will be full of good ideas for epic ways to fill it.


Travel for good

Every time you book an 18 to 29s trip, you'll be planting 50 trees in the world's first travel-powered forest in Kenya.

Our planet is full of beautiful places and creatures that inspire us, but we need to preserve and restore them for the next generation. When you travel with us you'll be directly helping to regenerate the planet you've inherited, with the help of The Intrepid Foundation.
