Intrepid adds UK river adventure trips

Intrepid Travel is adding “action-packed” trips exploring lesser-known rivers as part of an expansion of its UK portfolio.

Four new itineraries have been designed to help people explore the country by bike, on foot and on the water.

Northumberland’s River Tyne, the River Wye, River Thames and Devon’s River Dart and River Teign feature.

Highlights include wild swimming in Sharrah Pool in Dartmoor, stand-up paddle boarding down the Thames to Oxford and cycling around the Elan Valley in Wales.

Accommodation ranges from glamping to inns and family-run guest houses.

The operator said: “These trips are best suited to travellers with a moderate level of fitness and confident in the water, but no previous experience of the activities is necessary so they are ideal for those keen to try something new.”

Four days hiking, kayaking and biking along the River Tyne in Northumberland lead in at £945 per person.

Intrepid now has a range of 20 UK trips, bringing its style of travel closer to home for UK customers.

EMEA managing director Zina Bencheikh said: “We have seen a big uplift in bookings for our UK tours over the last three months, with many clients opting to stay closer to home this summer.

“These exciting new itineraries prove that you don’t have to travel far to have an adventure. In true Intrepid style, these trips are about getting out into nature, being active and discovering spectacular parts of the UK.”
