Today, I’m thrilled to officially welcome Intrepid Travel to our Women’s Travel Directory, the largest resource for women-friendly travel in the world. Not only do we want to introduce you to Intrepid’s Women’s Expeditions, we want to acknowledge the support they are providing to the devastating earthquake that occurred in Türkiye and Syria this week (please read on).
Led by local female guides, Intrepid’s women-only trips are about breaking down barriers, fostering discussion and creating immersive local experiences that are ordinarily off limits and in destinations that have been deeply affected by the pandemic. Not only are solo women important to Intrepid, according to Tom Smith, the General Manager for North America, but approximately 67% of Intrepid travellers are female, and 39% of those are women over 50.
Intrepid offers Women’s Expeditions to Jordan, India and Morocco, with plans to introduce more this year. Speaking of their women-only trips, Tom says: “It’s not about creating women’s only versions of existing tours or itineraries, it’s about where can we offer experiences that are run by women that offer an insight into local women’s lives that are going to add some value. One of the main reasons that women book our tours is because they are passionate advocates of gender equality, women’s empowerment, so I believe, that little by little, those meetings between women from around the world will start to move the needle.”

Intrepid has also launched an earthquake appeal fund for Türkiye and Syria after two major earthquakes struck the region on February 6. Intrepid has committed $100,000 AUD through the Intrepid Foundation to support immediate relief, aid, and rescue efforts in Türkiye and Syria. You can make a donation here. In addition, Intrepid Travel will donate all profits from bookings made on trips in Türkiye until April 30, 2023.
