Here’s a look at some of the new experiences on offer with Intrepid in 2023 …
Pakistan Expedition (from US$5,100 per person): Intrepid is introducing Pakistan as a new destination to its portfolio in 2023 with this new 15-day itinerary. Visitors will learn about Pakistan’s past, present and future, explore the region’s remote mountain villages during various hikes, visit female-led community projects, meet local families in Shimshal and experience the destination’s food, customs and culture.
Rwanda Gorilla Naming Ceremony & Uganda (from US$5,620 per person): This new trip features a momentous celebration of conservation success modelled off a centuries-old tradition in Rwanda – a naming ceremony for the baby gorillas born in the country’s Volcanoes National Park over the past year. Intrepid travellers will also trek alongside gorillas in Uganda, learn how the human-wildlife conflict is being tackled, enjoy several game drives and a boat cruise to spot wildlife, and be joined by a field veterinarian from The Gorilla Doctors for an exclusive fireside chat. A portion of the trip cost supports the important work they do.
Vanuatu Expedition: Land Diving Festival (from US$2,382 per person): On this five-day adventure, travellers will visit this South Pacific destination to witness and understand the cultural practices of the land-diving Indigenous people of Pentecost Island, widely considered the original bungee jumping.
Best of Costa Rica (from US$2,890 per person): On this eight-day trip exploring the beaches, rainforests and wildlife of Costa Rica, travellers will now be able to visit the Térraba Indigenous community, a matriarchal group that has survived off the land for more than 500 years.
Peru Expedition: Trek from Great Inca Road (from US$3,185 per person): In partnership with fellow B Corp SA Expeditions, Intrepid has helped develop sustainable operations along the Inca Trail’s rarely visited and equally magnificent neighbour, the Great Inca Road. Intrepid is the first global tour operator to bring travellers along part of this 25,000-mile ancient highway, traversing the UNESCO World Heritage Site alongside a traditional llama caravan.
Israel & Palestine Real Food Adventure (from US$3,550 per person): This is one of Intrepid’s beloved food-focused adventures, now with a new experience for travellers for 2023: a visit to Taybeh Brewing Company in Palestine run by the Middle East’s first female brewer.
