Intrepid Travel Puts A New Spin On An Old New Year Resolution

January 16, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

As we enter the New Year with good intentions to shed Christmas kilos and improve our fitness levels, adventure travel company Intrepid Travel has revealed new active trips, due to an increase in demand for this style of travel.

Designed to experience a destination through hiking, biking, rafting and kayaking, the latest additions to Intrepid’s active adventures combine a love of health and wellness with travel.

In 2017 Intrepid offered 17 active-style itineraries and this year the adventure company now has 24 itineraries, increasing its offerings by 41%.

“Money spent on wasted gym memberships this January can be put to better use by booking an active adventure”, said Brett Mitchell,  Intrepid Travel Regional Director Asia Pacific. “Our trips give travellers motivation to train towards a specific goal while continuing to stay active on holiday.”

“Australians have a real appetite for active trips and these itineraries offer bucket-list activities like white-water rafting on the Amazon River and cycling through villages in Chang Mai,” said Mitchell.

Intrepid Travel’s new active trips include:

India: Hike, Bike and Raft takes adventure seekers to ride white water rapids down the Ganges, hike & bike through the Himalayan foothills, hike through Kedarnath Wildlife Sanctuary, cycle through to the temple studded town of Gopeshwar and practice yoga in the spiritual hub of Rishikesh. The 12 day trip starts from AUD $2,840 per person twin share.

Sri Lanka: Hike, Bike and Raft lets travellers ride through tea plantations, canoe down rivers, and hike to ancient fortresses on this fitness focused adventure from Negombo to Colombo.
