Intrepid Travel

 A word from Intrepid Travel:

 Intrepid Travel’s story began in 1988, when two university friends travelled across the Sahara in a converted council truck. They talked endlessly about creating a style of small group travel which would have all the benefits of independent travel with none of the hassle, which would venture off-the-beaten-track and help travellers get under the skin of the places they went to.

They bought a second-hand typewriter, borrowed a dining room table and in 1989, Intrepid began operating trips in Thailand. Today, Intrepid offers more than 1,000 itineraries in over 100 countries. Our tours are designed to truly experience local culture - to meet local people, try local food, take all manner of local transport and stay in locally-owned accommodation or homestays.

We are committed to exploring the world in a way that respects and benefits local people, their culture and economy, as well as the environment. Since 2010, Intrepid has been a carbon neutral company and we have an ongoing programme to measure, reduce and offset the carbon emissions from our offices and stores. We also offset the carbon emissions produced on our tours at an average cost to passengers of just AUD$0.34 AUD per day.

On Greentraveller.co.uk you will find a selection of the tours that we offer in Europe and North Africa, which can be reached by train from the UK. Join one of our tours and you will discover classic sights and hidden gems with a small group of up to 12 like-minded international travellers. Travelling primarily by train, staying in locally-owned hotels, guesthouses, private homes and even monasteries, our travellers are of all ages, but they share a sense of fun and a wish to take a more memorable holiday.
