Higher-end sustainable travel with INTREPID Premium

Premium travel is all about exceptional experiences, a higher service level and excellent value. Using private or first-class local transport, perfectly paced itineraries and staying in handpicked accommodation. You’ll pay more than any the other INTREPID styles of travel, but in exchange you’ll be treated to more included meals, our most experienced local leaders and have more immersive activities included in your trip.

The INTREPID Premium style of travel is designed for the Intrepid traveller who’s looking for adventure travel with a higher standard of service. With well-crafted itineraries that include all the destination highlights (plus some unexpected surprises), Intrepid Premium is the sustainable choice for premium, locally led adventures. 

Handpicked Accommodation

Specially selected for both quality and location and with an average rating of 4 stars, Premium accommodation brings you closer to each destination. While sometimes off-grid or remote, you can always count on comfort and personalised service.

All Premium itineraries include a feature stay in a unique property chosen for historical significance, to showcase the local architectural style or to provide an unusual and exceptional local experience. Think a Ming-dynasty heritage house in China or a converted Madrasah in Uzbekistan.

As the sustainable choice for high-end adventures, INTREPID are always working to make already environmentally conscious trips even better. That’s why they feature accommodations that use renewable energy sources or that contribute back to the local community.

Local leader

The passion of the local leaders is what makes Intrepid’s trips so special. Premium trips are all led by Intrepid’s most experienced leaders, who will be available around the clock to make sure your trip is memorable and to share their invaluable local insights with you.

Premium itineraries are designed and curated by Intrepid’s in-destination experts. Genuine small group size (an average of 10 travellers per group) means you can easily access your leader’s time and attention.

Premium trips feature more included activities than any of other of the Intrepid styles, in addition to access to more local guides and experts. Experiences are less physically demanding, ranging from cultural to culinary, wellness to wildlife, and more. 

More meals

Premium itineraries include more meals than other Intrepid styles, and all breakfasts are covered, so be sure to pack your appetite! From homecooked feasts and roadside markets to locally owned restaurants and multicourse gourmet dinners, Premium meals are so much more than just food – they’re an experience to remember. 

Premium service

From the first step of your journey, the Intrepid team on the ground are on hand to provide premium service to you. With included arrival transfers, luggage porterage and 24/7 in-destination support, the little details won’t get in the way of a big adventure.  


All incidental tipping (excluding for your local leader) is included in the price of your Premium trip, saving you the hassle so you can just enjoy every moment.
