Why Intrepid?

Intrepid groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently but big enough to create a good social vibe. Group size will vary depending on where and how you’re traveling, but the average group size is about 10. You'll find that’s a great number to let you connect with the people you meet without feeling like you’re just a face in a crowd.


A trip to suit every Intrepid traveler.

Every Intrepid small group adventure has been carefully designed to make sure you have an unforgettable travel experience. Over the years, they’ve developed several trip styles and a wider range of themes to cater to a diverse range of travelers.
