Intrepid Travel unveils new Premium range of tours

Intrepid Travel has introduced a new range of tours designed for discerning travellers who are after a more sustainable choice for high-end adventures.

The Intrepid Premium collection of tours feature hand-picked accommodation, private transportation, train journeys and an array of exclusive experiences.

The Intrepid Premium range spans across over 40 countries, with over 70 new trips available for departures starting in January 2022.

Every itinerary includes a feature stay and signature experience that will not be available on any other Intrepid trips.

Feature stays range from a cave hotel in Cappadocia, Turkey to an eco-lodge in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

Signature experiences include a sand dune dinner under the stars in Pushkar, India and a community stay in Peru that includes a visit with the Ese Eja peoples, an indigenous community considered the stewards of the Peruvian rainforest.

The Premium tours will be led by Intrepid’s most experienced leaders and destination experts.

As the world’s largest travel B Corp, and the only tour operator in the world with verified science-based climate targets, responsible travel will be a core focus of Intrepid Premium trips.

Most accommodations are locally owned and many of the properties use renewable and alternative energy sources.

A selection of trips will also visit social enterprise projects that are working to promote gender equality, animal welfare, environmental sustainability and economic empowerment.

As with all Intrepid Travel tours, the Premium range is 100 per cent carbon offset and designed to have a low environmental footprint and a positive impact on local communities.

“With our aim to become a world leader in sustainable, experience-rich travel, we identified that many of our customers were seeking a higher-end product with purpose,” Intrepid Travel CEO James Thornton said.

“As we continue to prepare for a gradual and sustainable recovery, we saw Premium as an opportunity to build a new style of tour that ensure local communities truly benefit from high-value tourism.

“We wanted to show that a premium product can also deliver on a premium purpose.”
