Intrepid Travel was born in 1989 with the simple mission to create positive change through the joy of travel.

More than 30 years later, we’re proud to be the world’s largest travel B Corp with more than 950 small group trips in over 100 countries. After all these years, we’ve stayed true to our mission, ensuring our adventures are good for the places we go, good for the communities we visit and good for our travellers. That’s why we carbon offset all our trips and support local communities but we’re not stopping there. We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.

The Opportunity: 

You’re there to inspire our travellers and help them fall in love with their destination by immersing them in your local culture and exposing them to true real-life experiences. Our hosts don’t just recite from a guidebook, they use their passion for their community to educate help our travellers fall in love with the destination – so they want to return, again and again.

With Intrepid you’ll be ensuring that the work you do has meaning, as Intrepid focuses on giving back and investing in your local community, which is why we use local leaders, local operators and ensure we give back to the destination at every opportunity.
