Intrepid Travel has launched Its ‘Intrepid Premium’ range which it says will be a more sustainable choice for high-end adventures; featuring the highest standard accommodation, on-trip experiences and minimal environmental footprint with maximum positive impact on the local communities it visits.
Intrepid Travel has today introduced a new range of tours called Intrepid Premium.
The collection of tours aims to appeal to discerning travellers by featuring hand-picked accommodations, private transportation, train journeys and an array of signature experiences exclusively available on Premium tours.
With over 70 new trips available for departures starting in January 2022, Intrepid Premium gives travellers a more sustainable choice for high-end adventures.
“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,” says James Thornton, CEO of Intrepid Travel.
The Intrepid Premium range spans across over 40 countries and every itinerary will include a feature stay and signature experience that will not be available on any other Intrepid trips.
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 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,”
James Thornton, CEO of Intrepid Travel
The Premium tours will also be led by Intrepid’s most experienced leaders and destination experts.
A focus on high-end Responsible Travel
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.
The company says that 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.
“Intrepid Premium offers travellers our authentic and local style of travel, complete with extra levels of comfort and unforgettable signature experiences. These deliver a unique perspective – providing a deeper connection to the people and places we visit,” says Sarah Clark, Intrepid Travel’s Managing Director APAC.
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.
The news follows the announcement last week of a new strategic partnership from Intrepid Travel with Genairgy, a French based family investment company and shareholder of Decathlon, one of the largest sports retailers globally with five outlets in Australia.
