Adventure tour company Intrepid is relaunching a range of culture-focused trips in the South Pacific. The region was particularly hard hit by pandemic shut downs, and as the area reopens to tourism, there’s a lot of thought going into how communities can benefit from tourism without the industry being islands’ sole source of income. 

Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, the Cook Islands, and Fiji are on Intrepid’s relaunched itineraries, which include a mix of cultural and adventure activities. Volcano trekking, snorkeling with turtles, meeting local leaders and warriors are among the activities on its nine South Pacific tours. Tours range from five to 10 days, and the company encourages travelers to make the most of their carbon footprint by extending a stay to do more independent travel after the tour. Prices range from about $2,500 to just under $4,000 per person. 

TourScoop Takeaway

Since these are Intrepid Travel itineraries, they’re big on adventurous activities, going deep on authentic experiences, and avoiding the most touristy hotels and attractions. Most also require a good baseline fitness level. But for travelers that all works for, the benefits of traveling with Intrepid are abundant. Incredible experiences unlike those you’d likely be able to arrange on your own are par for the course, and trekking with support and guidance is valuable in remote locations like the ones on the itinerary.
