Want to stay active and fit on holiday? Intrepid Travel has the answer

3 May 2011

Company features almost 90 small group itineraries with active component

Whether you choose to cycle past berber villages in Morocco…or hike Spice Trails in India, you’re sure to keep up your fitness regime on an Intrepid Travel active-themed vacation.

The small-group adventure company has just announced a hugely-expanded number of activity-based holidays and now offers 89 to choose from around the world. The trips are now offered in 21 countries from Austria to Venezuela, with France, Panama and Sri Lanka in between.

Thrilling adventures is the simplest way to describe these trips. But you don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to take part: most of these holidays are aimed at people who like to walk, hike, bike and kayak. And they’re hugely popular with women aged between 25 and 45, who love their fitness routine at home and don’t want to leave it behind when they travel.

Like all Intrepid trips, the groups are intentionally small – usually averaging 10 – so that participants can immerse themselves in their host destinations, eating at family-owned restaurants, visiting local markets and staying at small hotels. There are also independent tours for those who prefer not to travel in a group. “There’s a real focus on mind, body and sprit on these vacations,” says James Thornton, general manager for global sales at Intrepid.

And every tour features a physical challenge and culture-shock rating so you can narrow down the one that’s perfect for you.
