In 2024, Intrepid will become the first-ever tour operator to bring travelers along Spain’s off-the-beaten Camino Del Norte trail. Also known as the Northern Way of the famous Camino de Santiago, this UNESCO-listed pilgrimage dates back to the Middle Ages. The challenging trek covers up to 28km per day along the coasts of Northern Spain, with nonstop views and fewer visitors than other parts of the ancient trail region. Highlights along the way include visits to historic monasteries, charming village-stays, delicious almond cake tasting and lush landscape scenery. The trek includes hotel and pension stays with a team of guides and drivers to carry luggage every step of the way.

This new 8-day walking and hiking trip through the Happy Valley – or Ait Bougmez in the Central High Atlas Mountains. Running along the M’goun Massif, this is home to Morocco’s third-highest mountain peak – Jebel M’goun. Traversing through rural villages, ancient ruins, lush vegetation, cascading waterfalls and fields of grain, trekkers learn about the rich culture of the Amazigh people, the history of dinosaurs who once lived here and why sometimes, exploring on foot is the only way to witness the authenticity of a place bursting with stories. These trips also directly support education of girls from remote villages of the region.
Over the last few years, the 26-kilometer Quarry Trail in the Andes Mountain region of Peru has gained recognition as an off-the-beaten-path alternative to the Inca Trail, ending at Machu Picchu, the world-famous icon of the ancient Incan Empire. Through a collaboration with a local Peruvian community, Intrepid Travel has developed a new section of the Quarry Trail, previously unseen by travelers. Featured on a range of Intrepid Peru itineraries for 2024, the four-day Quarry Trail experience will now begin with a 15-minute climb to Qory Sonq´o hill, where travelers can simultaneously take in views of three valleys: Soqma Perolniyoc, Pachar and Huarocondo, and discover skeletal remains and original tomb structures dating back hundreds of years.
