Intrepid Travel is bringing back its women’s expedition range, which aims to offer a deeper understanding of female culture in more conservative destinations.
After initially launching a limited range of tours in 2018 in Morocco, Jordan and Iran, the trips become some of the most popular itineraries in Intrepid’s offerings.
The group then launched tours in Turkey, Kenya, India and Nepal in 2019. And this year, Intrepid will reintroduce the tours in countries that have disproportionately been impacted by COVID-19.
For instance, more women in India lost their jobs compared to men, and far fewer of them have been able to return to the workforce.
The India Women’s Expedition highlights include travelling by public transport in the female-only carriage of the Delhi Metro, exploring the colourful bazaars and architecture of Old Delhi, a night under the stars in the Thar Desert with traditional food and dance performances by the local women (while the men cook dinner), and a city tour aboard an eye-catching pink e-rickshaws run by an not-for-profit to give disadvantaged local women employment.
