Intrepid Travel has relaunched its "Real Food Adventures" with a new offering.
The 21 tours have been revamped to include a new plant-based experience on every itinerary, part of Intrepid’s ongoing commitment to decarbonize their business and inform a more climate-conscious future for travel.
“Plant-based diets are a major opportunity for mitigating and adapting to climate change,” said Intrepid’s Global Environmental Impact Manager, Susanne Etti. “Plant-based foods generally have a much lower carbon footprint than animal-based foods. As Intrepid continues to innovate in ways that promote and support sustainability, including a delicious meal that showcases local fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds is just one way that we are investing in the health of our planet."
Intrepid’s Real Food Adventures were originally launched in 2013 with six trips designed to give foodies a culinary experience focused on grassroots cuisines and culture.
After a pandemic-induced hiatus, today, the reintroduced range features 21 tours including longstanding favourites like Mexico, India and Vietnam as well as newer itineraries in South Korea, The Balkans and Israel & Palestine.
New for 2022 is a selection of 21 plant-based experiences that were curated to promote and normalize less carbon-intensive eating habits and to show travellers the importance of making climate-conscious decisions in everyday life.
While the tours will still feature signature meals with traditional meat and fish dishes, the trips have been designed to show the importance of balance and moderation when it comes to making small but significant changes towards a more climate-friendly lifestyle.
Highlights of the reintroduced Real Food Adventures and 21 plant-based experiences include:
- South Korea Real Food Adventure (8 days from $3,385 CAD)
- Italy Real Food Adventure (8 days from $3,090 CAD)
- Japan Real Food Adventure (12 days from $6,715 CAD)
- Mexico Food Adventure (9 days from $1860 CAD)
- Vietnam Real Food Adventure (12 days from $2,425 CAD)
Intrepid Travel has long been advocating for the role our food system plays in the climate crisis.
In 2018, the company launched three dedicated vegan real food adventures in India, Italy and Thailand.
While these trips are still available as custom and private departures, Intrepid has now shifted focus to embedding more plant-based meals into all of its existing itineraries.
