Intrepid Travel was born in 1989 with the simple mission to create positive change through the joy of travel.

More than 34 years later, we’re proud to be the world’s largest travel B Corp with more than 1000 small group trips in over 100 countries. After all these years, we’ve stayed true to our mission, ensuring our adventures are good for the places we go, good for the communities we visit and good for our travellers. That’s why we carbon offset all our trips and support local communities but we’re not stopping there. We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.
