Intrepid Travel Uncharted Monastry mountains landscape

Intrepid invites travellers for a one-off trip without knowing the itinerary

Intrepid Travel has opened applications for its one-off ‘Uncharted Expedition’ that will see 12 travellers take on a 3,500 kilometre trip across three borders and four countries into the unknown.

The 18-day trip travels a route from Tehran to Istanbul.

Darrell Wade, Intrepid Travel co-founder, said: “We have seen an appetite from travellers to be completely surprised. They put their faith in Intrepid delivering the best travel experience, as everything is an unknown on these trips, aside from adventure.”

Wade said the ‘mystery’ trip harks back to the early days of Intrepid Travel where classified ads offered no details, just a call to explore a destination.

“This is our way of returning to the roots of travel, and how our company began 30 years ago, by being on the frontier of destinations and experiences. Some of the best travel experiences are unplanned. In this case, all the planning has been done by our expert team,” he said.

The 2020 Uncharted Expedition doesn’t give too much away, but one day you could be exploring a 3000-year old village, the next day learning an ancient language that doesn’t involve speech.

He continued: “Travellers have the rare chance to abandon expectations. While we can’t tell you where you’re going, we can tell you that it will be eye-opening. You’ll sleep in factories and rock caves, and eat boiled cow hoof soup.

“You will bear witness to spiritual, archaeological, religious and political history. Humanity will come to light in a way you’d never expect.”

The application window will be open for four weeks. Travellers can register their contact details until July 9. They will randomly selected and notified by email in the second week of July. The expedition will depart April 2020 and is part of the tour operator's Expeditions range. The 18-day trip has been secretly planned with the guidance and expert knowledge of Intrepid’s destination managers. 

Uncharted Expedition is priced at £2,495 per person, excluding flights.
