The Intrepid Foundation works with three industry leaders in adventure travel to bring support to community projects around the world.
Geckos travellers are young, savvy explorers who want to experience a destination without exploiting it. Maintaining this ethos wherever they travel, Geckos travellers always tread lightly, no matter how weird, wild or wonderful the path. With this commitment to responsible and sustainable travel, Geckos has always been closely connected with community projects in the destinations they visit. After many years of donating through their Community Trust, they joined forces with The Intrepid Foundation in 2013 in a partnership that will offer travellers a more substantial base for donation and a greater selection of projects to support.
Intrepid Travel takes travellers of all ages and all walks of life on small group adventures around the world. Travelling the local way, eating the local way and sleeping the local way – travellers get to experience real life in a destination. Leaving as light a footprint as possible in the countries they visit, sustainability and responsible travel are integral to Intrepid. In 2002, they founded The Intrepid Foundation as a way to allow their travellers to give something back to the communities they visit. Since then, Intrepid travellers have been able to make a valuable contribution, helping to raise over AUD$ 4 million for Foundation projects around the world.
Peregrine Adventures allows travellers to get beneath the surface of a destination, and connect with a place through more immersive, authentic experiences than they would be able to get on a larger group tour. Peregrine travellers are engaged with the world around them, and travel with sensitivity and awareness. Demonstrating a strong responsible travel ethos, Peregrine is committed to investing in the local communities they visit. Having successfully contributed to local projects through their own Community Trust for many years, Peregrine partnered with The Intrepid Foundation in 2013 in order to combine the donations of Intrepid, Peregrine and Geckos travellers, and contribute to a larger number of beneficiaries.
Day tours with a difference! Urban Adventures is for those who want to get off the beaten path and really connect with a destination. In just a few hours, get under the skin of the city you’re visiting so you know it like a local – or better than one. Urban Adventures tours take travellers to interesting places to meet locals, and to really see what makes a place tick. Best. Day. Ever.
