A new range of ‘premium’ tours is being introduced by sustainable operator Intrepid Travel.
The tours feature hand-picked accommodation, private transportation, train journeys and exclusive experiences.
More than 70 new trips are available for departures starting in January 2022, Intrepid Premium gives travellers a more sustainable choice for high-end adventures.
The Intrepid Premium range covers more than 40 countries. Each itinerary includes a stay and signature experience that will not be available on any other Intrepid trip.
Experiences on offer 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 people, an indigenous community considered the stewards of the Peruvian rainforest.
Feature stays may include the Orient Star, a former madrasa in Khiva, Uzbekistan; Nkuringo Bwindi Gorilla Lodge, an eco-friendly jungle hideaway with views over Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest; and Splendid Cave Hotel, where guests view hot air balloons rising over Cappadocia in Turkey.
A selection will visit social enterprise projects that are working to promote gender equality, animal welfare, environmental sustainability and economic empowerment.
The B Corp company’s chief executive James Thornton said: “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.
“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 ensures local communities truly benefit from high-value tourism.
We wanted to show that a premium product can also deliver on a premium purpose.”
