Intrepid Travel has launched a range of Expedition trips, with itineraries in a southern Mexico jungle, Georgia, Kosovo and Papua New Guinea the first to be announced.
The trips in the Expedition range will have limited departures in 2015, allowing Intrepid to test new product as well as satisfy the adventurous spirit of its most well-travelled customers and staff. Itineraries include Exploring the Mayan World; Rabaul, Papua New Guinea; Svaneti, Georgia; and Kosovo, Albania and Macedonia. More itineraries to off-the-map regions are expected to be unveiled throughout 2015.
More than 50 submissions met the criteria set out by Intrepid for the new range of exploratory-style tours, which required trips to be logistically possible, not include a ‘danger zone’, and to visit somewhere genuinely new and unusual.
Intrepid Travel acknowledges that the Expedition style of travel is not for everyone with a warning on its website that these are new trips and travellers should “expect some things to go wrong."
