intrepid groupThe growing demand from the ever increasing adventurous travelers has led the Intrepid Group to start its first office in Japan.

 

Inbound tourism in Japan is up by 16.9 per cent and the number will further soar higher due to the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics.

 

A recent McKinsey report revealed that the industry will have to take the travellers beyond Japan’s three major cities to maintain a sustainable growth.

 

Travellers opting for Intrepid Travel’s itineraries in Japan can enjoy the Ashaikawa’s ice festival, cycling in the Noto Peninsula, a food tour to Koya-san and a new trip to southern Japan in 2018.

 

In 1989 the Intrepid Group started as Intrepid Travel and took small groups travelling off-the beaten track and supported the local communities they visited.

 

Over the years the Australian-owned company has grown as a vertically-integrated business employing 1,600 staff in 27 offices and takes 350,000 travellers to more than 100 countries every year.

 

The Kyoto office will be operated under the PEAK DMC brand will have 20 local staff and guides taking travellers throughout Japan.

 

The lesser known destinations for Intrepid Travel, Peregrine Adventures, Geckos Adventurers and other tour operator brands will be covered.

 

James Thornton said that there has been a huge demand for sustainable growth and experiential style of travel across different ages and budgets.

 

This will induce tourism into smaller communities and preserving the cultural and natural beauty of Japan.

 

The company is currently on a hiring spree, this is the Intrepid Group’s eighteenth destination management company in its global network.

 

The new PEAK DMC companies will open in Iceland in November and three Central America locations in January 2018.
