Intrepid Travel has announced a collection of 38 new trips in the U.S. that will begin departing in 2022 - its most robust offering in the country since its inception over 30 years ago.
Each trip was designed to provide opportunities to forge meaningful connections between travellers and the people who make this diverse country so rich in culture.
“We’ve thought for a long time about the unique role Intrepid can play in the United States,” said James Thornton, CEO of Intrepid Travel. “We felt compelled to not only offer sustainable and unique travel experiences for both domestic and international travelers, but to also ensure we use the power of tourism as a force for good.”
“We created these itineraries to showcase the U.S. through a more authentic and diverse lens. While they will offer travellers the chance to see the country’s most iconic sites and cities, they also celebrate the lesser-known places, communities and highlights that make up the rich fabric of America.”
“While we did include many of the well-loved places that get people excited to travel, we took it a step further by celebrating the small towns and varying perspectives that allow travellers to understand what America is – not just at its surface, but rather at its core."
Intrepid’s new U.S. trips will incorporate the must-see attractions while giving travellers more curated, in-depth offerings.
From enjoying local delicacies and going on human-powered active adventures, to spending time with First Nations tribes, each trip will provide a unique take on the destination.

U.S. will play big part in Intrepid's growth
The launch of these new trips brings Intrepid’s total portfolio in the United States to 57 tours, together covering 28 states and Washington D.C. and including a mix of walking, cycling , multi-active, culinary and general sightseeing adventures.
"The United States will play a big part in Intrepid Travel’s future growth and vision as a company," the company said in a release. "To increase its capacity, ensure the utmost quality control over each trip and incorporate the highest sustainable and responsible measures, the business has built and launched its own dedicated American operations hub this year, which allows Intrepid to build more meaningful and impactful relationships with its suppliers."
Future plans in the U.S. include continuing to work with First Nations outfitters to run more specialized trips and experiences focused on several perspectives and cultures of the country’s various tribes, and aiming to introduce its recently launched Premium tour range in the States, which will provide a sustainable travel option for the higher-end adventure traveler.
