Intrepid to offer 8 new BIPOC-centric experiences in the U.S.

TORONTO — As part of its ongoing U.S. expansion, Intrepid Travel has launched a brand new tour in Southeast America that highlights West and Central African culture.

The trip, says the B Corp-certified tour operator, is designed to introduce new experiences that not only celebrate BIPOC cultures, but also provide a more diverse and inclusive perspective of the United States. Called ‘Charleston to Savannah: Exploring Gullah Geechee Culture,’ the six-day itinerary from Charleston to Savannah includes a tour of the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church, a sweet grass weaving workshop, a musical and dance performance in Beaufort, a seafood boil with locals, and Sunday worship service at one of Savannah’s Black churches.

The new tour is one of nearly 40 new trips Intrepid is launching in the U.S. this year, its most robust offering in the country since its inception over 30 years ago. Within these tours are several new BIPOC-centric experiences designed to help travellers see America through a move inclusive lens. The eight new experiences include:

Intrepid Travel launched its own dedicated American operations hub in 2021, Intrepid DMC North America, which has been increasingly focused on building more impactful relationships with BIPOC-owned businesses and suppliers to offer its travelers a broader range of experiences and perspectives.

According to Intrepid, each new highlighted activity could not have been possible without the collaboration and partnership of several BIPOC organizations and representatives, such as the National Blacks in Travel & Tourism Collaborative and representatives from the Crow Nation and Lakota tribes.
