A ONE-OFF ADVENTURE FOR 2020

A lot of us say we're open to new experiences – to putting the map aside, tasting the strange, diving into the deep end – but how open are we really?

A lot of us say we’re open to new experiences – to putting the map aside, tasting the strange, diving into the deep end. But how open are we really? 

If you’re the type of person who’s constantly chasing the thrill of the unknown, Intrepid's new one-off Uncharted Expedition might be just the adventure you’re looking for. Why? Because on this departure, you won’t know where you’re going. We’ll give you start and finish points, but everything in between will remain a mystery until you get there. 

One day you could be exploring a 3000-year-old volcanic village; the next, fossicking for post-Soviet memorabilia at an open-air flea market, then learning an ancient language that doesn’t involve speech. 

You’ll need to embrace your inner explorer, trust your own adventurous traits, and join us on a journey that is undefined, unmapped, and uncharted. You’ll need to be Intrepid. In fact, you’ll need to be the most Intrepid.

TRAVELLERS

From breakfasts of thick cream and honey served with traditional bread, to hearty soups of boiled cows hooves (we hear it’s a great hangover cure!), expect to eat dishes you probably won’t find at home. Now’s a good time to let you know that this trip isn’t for picky eaters.

THE TRIP

You’ll get around by van, plane, train (including a few overnighters), and on foot.

Expect to stay in small hotels, a homestay inside a cave, and a former Soviet sewing factory.

We’ll be travelling through some pretty diverse landscapes and climates and there will be some destinations a bit cooler than described; lows of 7 degrees in some areas and only reaching max of 16 degrees. April is also one of the most unpredictable months when it comes to weather so very likely to be some rain, and definitely snow on the top of mountains. 

A ONE-OFF DEPARTURE FOR 2020

You’ll be on the road with a small group of people who are happiest when they’re challenged, more comfortable outside their comfort zone than in, prepared for bumps in the road, and open to adventure.

You’ll start your expedition in Tehran, where you’ll see the city’s famous dazzling palaces, blue-domed mosques and snow-covered mountains. And that’s all we’re going to tell you!
