Intrepid Travel has added 12 new itineraries to its Expedition Range, taking the most adventurous travellers to some of the world’s wildest frontiers.
The Expedition style of travel was launched by Intrepid in 2015 and quickly became popular with curious travellers hungry to reach the most remote corners of the world.
The 2016/2017 limited edition trips include exclusive experiences that may not be available in years to come, including:
- Searching for the elusive snow leopard amongst the high mountain passes of Ladakh, India where only 200 of these species are left in the region;
- Running the scenic marathon course along the Great Wall of China, the only Chinese-supported marathon in the country;
- Traversing more than 35 miles of thick jungle to the Maya city of El Mirador, Guatemala;
- Connecting with the Nenets, a tribe of nomadic reindeer herders, far above Russia’s Arctic Circle;
- Migrating along 4,000-year-old routes with southeast Morocco’s nomadic Ait Atta;
- Celebrating Myanmar’s Naga Festival, where the Naga hill tribes converge annually to ring in the New Year.
“These tours are crowd-sourced internally from our world-travelled staff who have put their passion for adventure and world exploration into highly tailored itineraries,” says Leigh Barnes, North America director for Intrepid Travel. “The team is keen to share a piece of themselves and these unique places that reward travelers with eye-opening experiences and the ability to delve deeply into these destination.”
Initial departures for the 2016/2017 Expedition Tours are set for September with prices ranging from $1,045 to $7,235 per person.
