How the dream of NOVICA Journeys came true

For years our customers asked, our staff pleaded, and we have generally said, "next year we'll add travel."

Well next year eventually became this year, so we set out to make NOVICA Journeys a reality - because nothing spreads happiness and connects us to other cultures like travel. It's in our DNA, it's at our core - We Love Travel... more

As we laid the groundwork, we made a checklist of the qualities that define our favorite travel experiences:

  • Small group adventures
  • Authentic grassroots real-life experiences
  • Local staff - country guides
  • Responsible travel, carbon neutral - climate positive
  • Balance of inclusions & free time
  • Mix of classic highlights and local secrets
  • Destinations on every continent

Then, in perfect serendipity, we found our ideal tour partner - Intrepid. They checked all the boxes and bring to our partnership three decades of dedicated B-Corp responsible travel credentials in the world of small-group adventure travel. We couldn't be happier!

Together with Intrepid, our tours will inspire, immerse and provide experience-rich travel to our beloved customers for many years to come. We can't wait to hear your story. Let the adventure begin!

All NOVICA tours are brought to you
in partnership with Intrepid Travel
