Intrepid Launches Dollar Deposits

In an effort to help New Year’s resolutions stick, Intrepid Travel is offering $1 deposits on 1,000-plus trips to 120-plus countries Jan. 13-30.

“Commit to accomplishing your 2020 goals before the all-too-common resolution failure occurs in mid-February with a $1 deposit on trips departing between Feb. 15 and Dec. 31,” the tour operator says. Intrepid is offering travel solutions for 2020’s most common resolutions, which include:

  • Exercise More – “Costa Rica (pictured): Raft, Surf & Kayak”
  • Eat Healthier – “Italy Vegan Food Adventure”
  • Reduce Stress – “Portuguese Camino”
  • Focus on Spiritual Growth – “Spirit of Bali & Nusa Lembongan”
  • Learn Something New – “India Expedition: Wilderness & Wildlife”

Exercise More is an eight-day-day active trip, “Costa Rica: Raft, Surf & Kayak.” The action-packed week in one of the world’s greenest countries will have participants cascading down the rapids of Pacuare Rivers, surfing in the Caribbean waters near Gandoca Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge, and paddling through waterways of Tortuguero National Park in search of monkeys, toucans and jaguars.

Eat Healthier invites participants to try a meat and dairy free diet with the eight-day “Italy Vegan Food Adventure.” They dine at Venice’s first vegan restaurant and try a hands-on cooking class in Bologna with an experienced local cook, hitting the local market beforehand to source fresh ingredients. Discover UNESCO World Heritage-listed San Gimignano, a gorgeous town in the hills of Tuscany known as the “medieval Manhattan,” and spend two nights in an all-vegan villa with exquisitely crafted interiors, rollings hills as a backdrop and an organic farm-to-table vegan feast.
