Intrepid Travel has introduced a new range of Intrepid Premium tours to appeal to high-end travellers, featuring hand-picked accommodations, private transportation, train journeys and an array of signature exclusive experiences.
With over 70 new trips in 40 countries available for departures starting in January 2022, Intrepid Premium gives travellers a more sustainable choice for high-end adventures.
The signature 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.
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% carbon offset and designed to have a low environmental footprint and a positive impact on local communities.
James Thornton, CEO of Intrepid Travel, observed that: “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.”
Thornton continued: “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.”
The Premium product range has been developed over the past six months as Intrepid continues to reimagine their business for a post-pandemic world. The premium product strongly aligns with Intrepid’s focus on rebuilding responsibly, as many global travellers who are searching for a more comfortable adventure travel experience now have the choice of a more sustainable option.
All Intrepid trips operate under Safe Travel protocols developed and endorsed by the World Travel & Tourism Council. Travellers can also book with confidence with Intrepid’s newly introduced Flexible bookings policy.
