Intrepid expands range of women’s tours

The range of women-only trips is being expanded by Intrepid Travel including its first dedicated expeditions in Pakistan and Nepal.

The expansion comes ahead of International Women’s Day 2023 and follows the introduction of expeditions for women in 2018.

The tours are led entirely by female leaders that aim to break down barriers for female travellers.

The 12-day Pakistan itinerary first departs from Lahore on September 17 at a lead-in of £3,040 per person.

Travellers will learn about life looks for both women living in Pakistan’s capital of Islamabad and in the remote communities of the Hunza Valley.

Intrepid tour leader Aneeqa Ali is the founder of The Mad Hatters, a female-led travel company focused on empowerment, engagement and connection.

She said: “Even the most adventurous travellers who have been all over the world don’t know much about Pakistan. 

“When travellers want to visit, women in particular want a female tour guide because of the news they’ve heard about Pakistan, but if you look at Pakistan’s tourism industry, it’s like a world of men. 

“I’ve faced these challenges firsthand and thought ‘Why not be the change you want to see in the world?’”

The Intrepid women’s expeditions range, including 13 days in Nepal, will feature six trips in 2023, each designed to support employment opportunities for women.
