Intrepid with Trailfinders
Intrepid is the largest small-group adventure travel company in the world, offering 1000+ itineraries in 120 countries across every continent. Intrepid trips cover the bucket list, off the beaten track and everything in between, with a strong focus on authentic local experiences that create a positive impact for the people and places they visit.
Small group adventures allow you to tap into a whole world of experiences that are out of reach for large groups and solo travellers. On an Intrepid trip, groups are kept small (max 16) ensuring everyone gets to see how Nonna in her kitchen makes her famous meatballs. It also means less time waiting for the whole group to snap a photo, more authentic, one-to-one interactions with locals and more flexibility in your itinerary.
From the beginning, Intrepid has always seen the potential for travel as a force for good. As well becoming climate positive in 2020, reducing single-use plastic on trips and encouraging slow, sustainable travel, Intrepid (and the Intrepid Foundation) have contributed more than £4.5 million to over 130 community organisations around the world. Travellers who choose Intrepid have the unique opportunity to visit these projects and see firsthand how their responsible travel choices make a direct impact on those in need.

Choosing your Travel Style
After 30 years of planning epic adventures around the world, Intrepid knows there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Even with a maximum group size of 16 people (though most trips average at around 10), each traveller’s budget, expectations and interests vary enormously. That’s why they’ve developed various trip styles and themes to cater to the ever-changing adventure traveller.
These are the trips Intrepid has built its reputation on. They strike the perfect balance between included activities to tap into the local culture and free time to explore each destination on your own. Expect comfortable hotels, a mix of private and local transport and a few great meals thrown in.
All the thrills of adventure travel, and a lot less of the spills. These trips move at a more relaxed pace with plenty of included activities, many meals along the way and well-appointed hotels, including a special feature stay to really elevate your experience.
A new style of trip designed for independent travellers who want the convenience of having all the essentials covered and the freedom to carve out their own adventure. With the expertise of their Trip Leader and the in-depth knowledge of the world’s most loved travel publisher, these trips give travellers a whole new way to tap into local experiences. Expect a flexible itinerary with centrally located accommodation, a taste of local transport and plenty of free time to choose activities that suit your budget and interests.
The ultimate highlight reel for budget-minded travellers under 30. Whether you’re travelling solo or with friends, the small group dynamic is great for exploring a new place in a fun, social way. All the logistics are taken care of so you’re free to find that restaurant you saw tagged on Instagram, get lost in the backstreets or conduct an impromptu bar crawl.
Action-packed itineraries that strike a balance between group activities and flexible free time. Each group is made up of 2-3 families with kids aged 5-17 years. Every Family Trip Leader is specially trained to keep things educational and entertaining, focusing on interactive experiences that fully immerse travellers in their destination.
A delicious twist on the original Intrepid style, these food-focused trips get to the heart of a destination through its cuisine. As well as eating your body weight in fantastic local food, you’ll learn about how the food got to your plate, who made it and how you can recreate it at home.
Intrepid offers a range of active adventures for travellers with varying fitness levels and interests. If you like to explore on foot, you can opt for an epic trek in Nepal or keep things a little closer to sea level with a walking trip along Turkey’s Lycian Way. On two wheels, you can cycle through the Jordanian desert or along the Panama Canal.
Leave casinos and cabaret to the big cruise ships, Intrepid does things a little differently. Each ship carries between 32-50 passengers with plenty of space indoors and on the deck so socialise with other guests or just soak up the views. Expect intimate dining experiences, one-to-one time with your Tour Leader and shore excursions that don’t involve being herded around a city
