Intrepid calls for ‘brave’ travellers to apply for mystery expedition

June 19, 2018 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Intrepid Travel is calling for applications for a one-off ‘Uncharted Expedition’ that will see 10 travellers take on a 3,500-kilometre trip in to the unknown.

Featuring some towns and villages which can’t be found on Google Maps, the 22-day trip expedition traverses a route that the world’s largest adventure company has never travelled before.

Beyond the departure point of Astana, Kazakhstan and the finishing point of Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, the trip itinerary will be full of unknowns – with travellers only given small hints about what’s in store. The only certainty is that they’ll explore little-known parts of Central Asia.

Intrepid Travel co-founder Darrell Wade, says this ‘mystery’ trip is unlikely to appeal to anyone but the most courageous travellers.

“You won’t know where you’re going, what you’ll see, where you’ll stay or what you’ll be eating. There’ll be long travel days, intermittent electricity and WiFi, a few cold showers, and a few treats along the way though, including fermented mare milk.”

But it’s going to be a real adventure. One day you could be hiking through the world’s most remote and breathtaking landscapes; the next, soothing your aching muscles in a sauna in the middle of nowhere.”

The expedition, departing 30 June 2019, has been designed to celebrate launched to mark the company’s 30 years of operations next year.

“When we first started out and we wanted to go somewhere new, we’d place a classified ad in the newspaper, calling for intrepid people to join us on research trips. Thirty years later we go to more than 120 countries and we still get a thrill out of discovering new places with our most curious travellers.”

The Uncharted Expedition is part of Intrepid’s Expeditions range, a style of trips that the adventure travel company still uses to discover new destinations and test new trip ideas.

Travellers on the expedition will be asked to provide feedback, which will determine if the trip is added to Intrepid’s 2020 Expeditions offering.

The trip will be led by one of Intrepid’s most experienced local leaders, and has been secretly planned with the guidance and expert knowledge of its destination managers.

Intrepid’s Uncharted Expedition is available from today, at $6,545 AUD per person, excluding flights. Spaces are strictly limited to one departure only.
