Nigel Startin, the founder of Intrepid, together with his team of instructors will always ensure they acquaint themselves with you before the trip, and then accompany every group traveling to and from the U.K. They will stay with you throughout the event, giving you the peace of mind that you will be in safe hands at all times and able to benefit and learn from the cumulative years of experience of the Intrepid team. This is then complimented by Intrepid’s support team in Sweden, who are all native to the area. Their experience and knowledge of the locality and terrain is second to none.

A unique, passionate and professional adventure company committed to offering a range of adventures, expeditions and courses that will provide you with the experience of a lifetime. Whether you are looking for an Arctic experience, husky dog or snowmobile adventures, survival training or canoeing expeditions we are confident Intrepid Expeditions will not disappoint. Our years of experience and professionalism will give you the peace of mind that you expect.

Our expeditions and adventures offer an abundance of fantastic scenery, unique locations, value for money, and most importantly of all, a life enhancing experience that will never be forgotten. Courses are based mainly in Arctic conditions in Sweden, and at locations within the UK.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism and the way we operate and conduct the adventures; always ensuring that the personal needs and safety of course participants are met, and never compromised. We strive to exceed your expectations.

Where possible, we endeavor to be extremely flexible, and can tailor-make courses or trips to meet your requirements in certain circumstances. Contact us to discuss further.


We are confident that due to the unique way Intrepid Expeditions operates by taking personal control of all expeditions and courses, you will not find the same experience for a such a competitive price. As we are able to control our costs we are delighted to inform you that prices for our UK survival courses have not increased since the year 2000. Intrepid will provide you with the experience of a life time without charging you the earth!

“We, or the suppliers identified on your ATOL Certificate, will provide you with the services listed on the ATOL Certificate (or a suitable alternative). In some cases, where neither we nor the supplier are able to do so for reasons of insolvency, an alternative ATOL holder may provide you with the services you have bought or a suitable alternative (at no extra cost to you). You agree to accept that in those circumstances the alternative ATOL holder will perform those obligations and you agree to pay any money outstanding to be paid by you under your contract to that alternative ATOL holder. However, you also agree that in some cases it will not be possible to appoint an alternative ATOL holder, in which case you will be entitled to make a claim under the ATOL scheme (or your credit card issuer where applicable).”

You agree that in return for such a payment or benefit you assign absolutely to those Trustees any claims which you have or may have arising out of or relating to the non-provision of the services, including any claim against us, the travel agent (or your credit card issuer where applicable). You also agree that any such claims may be re-assigned to another body, if that other body has paid sums you have claimed under the ATOL scheme.”
