Geckos is part of the Intrepid Group family of adventure travel brands - catering to all types of travellers. Meaning if you're over 29, we've got something for you too.

The Intrepid Group is a family of adventure travel companies run by travellers, for travellers. For more than 25 years, we’ve specialised in creating authentic, off-the-beaten-path adventures for every type of traveller.

One thing that unites all of our brands is the shared commitment to having a purpose beyond profit: supporting the economies and people of the communities we visit, reducing our global footprint by carbon-offsetting our trips and respecting local customs and culture.

You might already heard of Intrepid Travel - they're also a part of the Intrepid Group family and know a thing or two about off-the-beaten-track travels. They’ve also got three different trip styles to choose from, from super-affordable budget vacays like Geckos offers, to trips with more included and different levels of accommodation. Ready to go explore, Intrepid-style?

Intrepid Travel - basix style

Intrepid Travel: Basix style

For travellers of any age, looking for an affordable adventure

Our Basix style trips are a similar style to Geckos but are designed for travellers of any age who want exceptional value, plenty of free time and the flexibility to choose where and how their time and money is spent. By working plenty of free time into the itineraries and keeping many of the activities optional, we aim to make travel possible for those on even the most slender of budgets. After all, why pay for an activity or excursion you wouldn’t otherwise be interested in? Or a level of comfort you don’t require?

The Intrepid Foundation

The Intrepid Foundation

Wondering how to make a difference?

We believe in having a purpose beyond profit: supporting the economies and people of the communities we visit, reducing our global footprint by carbon-offsetting our trips, and respecting local customs and culture. Responsible travel is a big reason we do the things we do. It’s why, way back in 2002, we set up The Intrepid Foundation. Its purpose was pretty simple: to empower travellers to make a difference and to help communities in the places we visit. We cover 100% of the administration costs and for every $1 a traveller donates we double it.

Tailor-made Trips

Tailor-made Trips

Want to forge your own path?

As much as making new travel acquaintances can be great, we understand that sometimes one just wants to holiday with one’s homies. Or Hockey team. Or fellow Poncho Appreciation Club members. Or whatever. That's why we created our private group trips. Make any Geckos departure a private group, or even tailor an itinerary to your interests.

Here's how it works: think about the kind of trip you'd like to take, band a group of friends together, pick a date and get in touch with us to chat it through. We'll handle the rest.
