SUSTAINABLE TRAVEL


l l a e r We a

Intrepid

Every Intrepid adventure starts with curiosity. A desire to understand, to learn something new, to challenge beliefs and push boundaries. To switch on our out-of-office alerts, to say farewell to daily routines, to have fun. For some, being Intrepid means trying a dish they can’t pronounce, or learning the salsa in a Cuban bar. It’s climbing a mountain, or an encounter with a silverback gorilla. For others, it’s packing for a solo adventure, getting out of that bubble of familiarity, and making new friends in all corners of the globe. Whether you’ve been travelling for years or you’ve never left home, we want to lead you to those moments of discovery, to satisfy that curiosity, to be Intrepid. Because now, more than ever, the world needs more Intrepid people.


01

Why

We run thousands of trips in a range of styles and visit every continent on earth. And we do it all with our signature attention to detail and passion for real life experiences. Our destination experts are constantly scouring the globe for sights and experiences to share – so you can discover your new favourite place, or explore a guidebook staple from a new perspective.

03

Get ready to go beyond the main streets and into the heart of a destination. Travelling with our expert local leaders means you can focus on being in the moment instead of worrying about missing the last train out of town or where you can safely stroll. It’s adventure travel with all the boring details taken care of, guided by a local who wants to bring you into their world.

We know this is your trip of a lifetime, and we’re committed to making it unforgettable. Our itineraries strike the perfect balance between the structured and the spontaneous, with a focus on experiences only made possible when you’re travelling with a local leader. We know you want freedom and flexibility as well as the highlights – that’s why we craft tours that give you both. Balcon de Europa, Spain

Travel for good

Smaller groups

We know our travellers care about the world as much as we do. From a meal made with produce grown on a family-run farm to learning how to basket-weave in a small village that’s home to a communitybased tourism project, when you travel with us you know that your journey is giving back. Don’t just take our word for it – as the world’s biggest travel B Corp, we follow strict ethical standards on sustainability, supply chains and social responsibility.

Our groups are perfectly sized to let you feel like you’re exploring a destination independently, but big enough to create a good social vibe. Whether it’s swapping stories at a local homestay, sharing a table at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, or enjoying a drink on the upper deck of your ship, our small group size opens up big opportunities the larger groups can only dream of.

With fewer than 50 passengers on every Adventure Cruise, our groups are the perfect size for mingling at happy hour and really getting to know your fellow travellers. Smaller groups means more personalised service, like one-on-one chats with your leader about history, culture and food, or your favourite ice-cold beer handed to you by the bar manager at the end of a day of exploring.

about discovering hidden jungle waterfalls and wandering through little Croatian laneways with your leader. It’s about travelling with a small group, so when we pull into port, or drop anchor at the islands, you’ll get to know the locals, rather than outnumber them.

specialised service We’re right there with you to ensure your adventure is memorable for all the right reasons. Our expert local leaders facilitate incredible land experiences, while the ship’s friendly crew make sure you have everything you need – from a room that’s sparkling clean to a glass of sparkling wine – to enjoy your time on board.

A Floating BOUTIQUE HOTEL Our ships combine all the comforts and personality of a boutique hotel with the freedom of the open water. Relax in your well-appointed cabin and wake to a different outlook each morning. Enjoy panoramic views from the sun deck, spend time in comfortable lounges and spacious dining rooms, or dine al fresco underneath a sea of stars.

Whether it’s a barbecue on a deserted beach, the catch-of-theday cooked up by your onboard chef or the gourmet breakfast that’s served each morning, our culinary experiences are designed to complement your journey and help you create memories you’ll savour forever – on and off the boat.

CRUISE THE sea less travelled Our small ships give you access to those out-of-theway spots the big ships can’t reach. We’ll show you the guidebook favourites from a new perspective, then cruise away from the crowds so you can stroll through seaside villages, swim in hidden coves and get a real insight into local living.

Discover the secrets Knowing a destination’s secrets is second nature to our leaders – like avoiding the Komodo crowds by heading to Rinca Island instead.

Intrepid’s Adventure Cruises are run by Peregrine Adventures, our sister company, because we like to keep things in the family. Peregrine runs trips in more than 80 countries across all seven continents, and one thing has stayed constant over 40 years of operating: a desire for authentic adventure.

Our award-winning leaders are a diverse bunch with one thing in common: a passion for their part of the world. Here are just some you might meet on your travels.

SOON THAILAND

Born and bred in the regions we visit, our leaders do so much more than simply show you the sights. They know the history of a place, as well as its shortcuts, and are full of insider info that you’d struggle to find in a guidebook. They can lead you to cool, tucked-away bars and give you tips on the best way to make the most of your free time. They bridge language barriers, can point you in the direction of a working ATM (and help you use it – we’ve all been there!) and generally make your journey as seamless as possible. With our local leaders, you don’t just see a destination, you experience it.

We’re the

world’s biggest travel B Corp

In 2018, we made our commitment to doing good official when we became the world’s largest certified travel B Corp. Being a B Corp means we no longer merely strive to make a positive difference in the world, we are legally bound to it. Companies attain B Corp certification and a score based on how they look after their staff, maintain a clean supply chain and take corporate social responsibility seriously. That means when you choose Intrepid Travel, you can rest assured you’re travelling to improve the planet.

OUR SCORE

Animal welfare

Gender equality

In 2014, we became the first global tour operator to ban elephant rides on our trips after we funded eye-opening research by World Animal Protection.

In 2017, we committed to doubling our number of female leaders by 2020; since then, we’ve grown from 150 to over 300 female leaders globally.

Ending modern slavery

Community-based tourism

Last year, we campaigned for laws that recognised orphanage tourism as a form of modern slavery. In 2016 we removed orphanage visits from all of our itineraries.

Responsible, community-based tourism is good for travellers and locals alike. That’s why we work with organisations like ActionAid to develop projects that empower communities.

FEATURE STORY

Panorama II

WHAT IT’S LIKE CRUISING THE CYCLADES ON AN ADVENTURE CRUISE One thing I discovered before the trip even began: there is no phrase more guaranteed to induce jealousy in your loved ones than ‘I’m sailing the Greek Islands’. Even dear friends and trusted colleagues will frost over with envy, especially when you insist on showing them pictures of your ship at every possible opportunity and saying things like, ‘that’ll be me next week. Isn’t it marvellous?’. And especially when your ship is the sleek Panorama II, which looks like it’s sailed straight out of a luxury Monaco marina. Search ‘cyclades’ at intrepidtravel.com/adventures to read more

12 Intrepid Adventure Cruising

WHAT TO PACK FOR YOUR ADVENTURE CRUISE Your flights are booked, your visas are sorted, and your cabin’s been secured – all that’s left to do before you set off is pack. Unlike conventional cruises, our Adventure Cruises don’t have a strict dress code. We’d rather you felt at home while on board and so suggest opting for casual attire (although you might like to bring along something a little dressier for the captain’s dinner – but no pressure). Search ‘cruise packing’ at intrepidtravel.com/adventures to read more

TRAVELLER TALE

WHAT TO EXPECT ON AN ADVENTURE CRUISE I wasn’t sure what to expect from an Adventure Cruise. The word ‘cruise’ conjured up images of vast banquet halls on huge vessels, and yet the word ‘adventure’ denoted exciting exploits into previously unexplored parts of the world. It sounded like an oxymoron, but then it was explained to me: small ships that can dock where the big ships can’t, a sustainable style of travel, like-minded travel mates and local leaders to guide you along the way Search ‘cruise’ at intrepidtravel.com/adventures to read more

THE GALAPAGOS GOSPEL

The GalaPagos Islands The Galapagos Islands have become a must-see destination for travellers all over the world thanks to their incredible biodiversity, natural beauty and place in history. This truly is a unique part of the world, as you’ll soon discover.

The Galapagos is a destination unto itself, where unique landscapes are home to crazy creatures and the surrounding waters host some of the most idyllic seascapes found anywhere on earth. Below is some info about what to expect on your trip to the Galapagos – it’s anything but a typical South American adventure.

PROTECTING THE GALAPAGOS

LUGGAGE

In order to preserve this important and fragile ecosystem, the Galapagos National Park authorities restrict the number of visitors to each site by issuing permits to every visiting vessel. This permit (or patente) determines which sites can be visited each day and when. Far from restricting a visitor’s experience, this system actually enhances it because the itineraries are designed in such a way as to eliminate the amount of vessel crossover. This results in witnessing more of the wildlife you’ve come to see without vying with boatloads of other tourists.

As some airline baggage restrictions exist on the flights between Quito and the islands, we advise leaving any luggage you can’t see yourself needing in the storage facilities of the starting-point hotel in Quito. All of our trips start and finish at the same hotel, so picking up any extra luggage won’t be a problem – and it also eliminates any surprise excess baggage fees!

If you don’t find the trip you’re looking for in these pages, visit our website at intrepidtravel.com/galapagos for more options.

A transit card fee of USD 20 is payable at check-in at Quito Airport prior to flying to the islands. The Galapagos National Park charges each passenger USD 100 upon arrival at the airport in Galapagos. If your itinerary visits Puerto Villamil, Isla Isabela, and you wish to disembark, there is a USD 10 port fee on arrival.

A TYPICAL DAY ON THE BOAT We do most of our long-distance cruising at night in order to maximise your time on the islands. And because the best time to observe much of the wildlife is first thing in the morning, early starts are pretty common. Each day consists of planned morning and afternoon activities, which tend to last between two and four hours. These can be anything from hiking, to snorkelling, to visiting research stations, and include either wet or dry landings. While you don’t need to be able to swim to enjoy the Galapagos Islands, some of the more unique experiences are had with a snorkel. Finally, although days are pretty packed with activities, there is ample free time to simply enjoy the environment.

All onboard meals are included in the cost of the trip. The food is delicious, nutritious and plentiful, and complimentary coffee, tea and purified water are provided around the clock. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase from the bar, and the cost is put on a tab that you will then be presented with at the end of the trip. Any special dietary requirements should be mentioned at the time of booking and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.

Quito Isla San Cristobal Isla Santa Cruz

Hot & dry 25-35ºC Hot & wet 25-35ºC Pleasantly warm 20-30ºC Cool 15-20ºC Cold & wet 0-15ºC

All fees are payable in cash and must be in US dollars.

MOBILE RECEPTION AND INTERNET There is very limited or no mobile reception in the Galapagos and no wi-fi onboard our boats. Some itineraries do pass through towns where internet is available, but we suggest you anticipate (and enjoy!) limited contact with the outside world.

IMPORTANT INFO ABOUT YOUR TRIP }} If you are travelling on Le Grande Daphne, arrival transfers can be organised at an additional cost.

MEALS ONBOARD

WEATHER

NATIONAL PARK FEES & TAXES

}} All of our Galapagos trips include a night in Quito pre- and post-voyage. }} Your trip price includes the Quito to Galapagos return flights. }} The Grand Queen Beatriz includes the services of an onboard Cruise Director. }} Prices for these trips vary depending on cabin type. Please select your preferred cabin type for the exact trip price. }} A high level of agility and mobility is needed to access all parts of the boat, negotiate embarkation/disembarkation and accessing the Zodiac from both the boat and water.

A guide to

the Galapagos

Isla Santiago Pay a visit to the Santiago fur seal grotto – you may be lucky enough to catch a sneak peek of these furry locals.

WARM (WET) SEASON These are the hottest months with more frequent rainfall. The wettest month is March with 85 millimetres (3.3 inches) of rainfall on average, but showers are usually confined to the afternoon. January through to April are the sunniest months, when the sea is at its warmest.

Isla Santiago

June–November The Humboldt Current brings cooler water temperatures, perfect for attracting plankton and other sources of food – meaning that local wildlife is very active during this season. There is very little rainfall, and colder currents can mean the seas may be slightly rougher than normal when travelling between islands.
