Millennials empowered to travel through Intrepid

Socially conscious millennials have now got an all new travel itinerary list to consider after travel experts Intrepid released their first brochure dedicated to 18 to 29 year-olds.

There are more than 80 different travel experiences on the brochure designed to get travellers off-the-beaten-path, from flying high in Turkey to camping around Iceland to island-hopping in Croatia.

According to Brett Mitchell, Regional Director for Asia Pacific at Intrepid, young customer feedback was the inspiration for the new millennial-focused brochure, as the young travellers told the company that they wanted to travel responsibly with like-minded people their own age.

“Young travellers want to have authentic, immersive experiences with their peers,” Mitchell said.

“These tours are for travellers who don’t want to backpack in large dorm rooms or booze it up but instead, want to break down cross-cultural barriers and make a positive impact on the local communities they visit.”

With every booking made, Intrepid will make a donation to leading social enterprise, Friends-International, who are committed to saving lives and building futures for marginalised young people around the world.

“The next generation of travellers has the power to make the biggest difference in the world, so we are thrilled to give them the opportunity to see the world the Intrepid way,” Mitchell said.

The 18 to 29s trips are priced low, according to Intrepid, so that millennials can experience big-time trips without a big-time price tag.

“In usual Intrepid style, the small group tours include all the local elements, from leaders to transport, so our young travellers can do things their way, inspired by a local, and have the spontaneous moments that makes travel so addictive,” Mitchell said.

Tours start from $390* – for a five-day tour of Cappadocia.

Highlights include:

 One week Split to Dubrovnik Sailing trip

An eight day adventure aboard a private yacht hopping from the island of Vis to the magical blue grotto of Cave Bisevo and the untouched forests of Mljet, an island yet to be overrun by busloads of tourists.

 One Week Camping in Iceland

Proving there’s a lot more to Iceland than ice (and Bjork), this seven-day tour takes travellers to the tongue of Europe’s biggest glacier, to the massive walls of ice in Skaftafell National Park, into the epic wilderness of Thorsmork National Park and back to Reykjavik for some party vibes.

Real Santiago de Cuba Carnival

On this 12-day tour, travellers can conga like the Cubans at carnival time in Santiago de Cuba, find out who that guy on the t-shirt is at Che Guevara’s museum and mausoleum, chill out in Trinidad and enjoy a mojito in Havana.

 Real Mexico

This 15-day tour takes in some of the many churches in Puebla, the best mezcal around in Oaxaca and finishes with some snorkelling and swimming at Playa del Carmen.

 Real Turkey

A 15-day round-trip tour from Istanbul to rocky sites, a rural village at the edge of a canyon overlooking the Mediterranean and the jaw-dropping sights from a hot air balloon at Cappadocia.
