Tour Overview

Hike the Margaret River coastline and surround yourself with some of Western Australia’s best sights, from epic clifftop views to colourful wildflowers, and dolphins leaping from the Indian Ocean. The Cape to Cape Track winds between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, on the traditional lands of the Wardandi peoples, and is widely regarded as one of Australia’s great walks. Forget about the details and focus on the track ahead of you and the scenery around you, while learning about the rich history and biodiversity of the region with two expert leaders by your side. From your base at a motel surrounded by Margaret River wine country, you’ll fully immerse yourself in the diversity of this stunning region on foot.

Highlights

  • Traverse this classic Western Australia track with not one but two expert local guides to share their knowledge about the region while taking care of the details along the way.

  • Take in epic views of the Margaret River coastline on a series of clifftop walks – it’s not uncommon to see dolphins or even whales along the way.

  • With all meals included (excluding lunch on the final day) you’ll enjoy wonderful fresh picnics in incredible locations, from lighthouse lookout points to peaceful brooks.

  • Explore diverse and beautiful landscapes by foot – from pristine white sand beaches and rugged cliffs to soaring karri forests, there’s always something amazing to look at.

  • Enjoy overnight stays in the same comfortable, centrally located accommodation in Margaret River.

North American Adventure

12-Oct-2021

This was my first international solo trip, but I never felt “alone” - there was always someone to go shopping, hike, or grab a quick bite with. The itinerary was a great balance between organized activities, while still allowing free time for exploring. Each location was unique and charming in its own way. Spending the night in the holy city of Moulay Idriss and wandering the winding streets of Chefchaouen were especially memorable. Thank you Mustapha and Intrepid for an incredible adventure!

Amazing Guatemala and beyond tour with Intrepid

13-Dec-2022

Did Guatemala and beyond trip in November 22. It was amazing, we were so well looked after by our guide Aura. She was very knowledgeable and during our bus trips she gave us the history of the 4 countries. The border crossings can be tricky but handled very well by our guide. We saw all the most interesting and beautiful places. The hotels were lovely comfortable colonial style. I will travel with intrepid again

Wonderful Croatian tour

02-Dec-2022

Our tour guide,Tamara, was the highlight of our Explore Croatia tour. She was knowledgeable, organized, and so kind and fun. Croatia is a beautiful country. I loved the people, the scenery, the food, the history. I hope to go back one day. Intrepid was perfect for me. There was group time and there was plenty of free time. It wasn’t a luxury tour but all of our accommodations were clean and safe. The dinner in Hvar was SO special!

The trip was amazing, everything was well planned out & there wasn't any issues. The tour guide was very friendly and made the experience fun. During the trip I didn't have to worry about safety as we were never put in harms way. I would definitely recommend & do again.

North Morocco Adventure

25-Oct-2021

Touring the beautiful North of Morocco I learned far more than I’d anticipated in this 9 day tour. Interesting sights to see, with knowledgeable local guides, this tour provides a great balance of exposure to a different culture with ample time for relaxation. Chefchaouen is an absolute highlight, & not a place many Morocco trips of this kind go to. Loved it!

Essential Morocca

21-Oct-2021

Essential Morocco was an absolute dream. Every single day had such informative walking tours and tours of local facilities. Whether it was dinner with a local family or visiting a pottery factory, I learned so much about Moroccan culture. The accommodations were safe and I felt secure the entire 11 days. This trip wouldn’t have been the same without one person. That person is Youssef. If you are coming to Morocco with Intrepid and you don’t request Youssef, you’re doing it wrong. Words cannot describe how incredible of a guide he is. There were 3 of us on our trip of 18-29 year olds and he made us all feel so welcome and safe all the time. Whether that is cracking jokes on long drives or giving us the itinerary for the next day, Youssef ensured we felt respected and seen.

Absolutely superb leader - knowledgeable. fun, safety conscious. Group of 15 travellers from 5 countries who bonded into a solid team. In addition to a fantastic itinerary, our leader’s love of karaoke made the trip unforgettable. It even inspired a song written as a tribute to him.
