“We’ve been beta testing our Adventures trips for several months and we’ve booked thousands of them so far—the demand has been strong,” says Kelly Dachtler, president and co-founder of The Clymb. “Sixty percent of our members have a passport and 85 percent of them are planning an adventure travel trip within the year. Partnering with an industry leader like Intrepid Travel will allow us to offer more incredible trips around the world.”

Founded in Melbourne, Australia, in 1989, Intrepid Travel offers more than 1,000 itineraries in over 100 countries and specializes in creating small-group, immersive adventure experiences with a focus on grassroots, responsible travel practices.

Heading up Adventures at The Clymb is Luis Vargas, formerly head of REI’s adventure travel program team. Prior to REI, Vargas worked as the trip development manager for Adventures by Disney. He is a board member of Sustainable Travel International and has spent his career enabling others to experience the planet and its many cultures in active and sustainable ways. At The Clymb, Vargas leads a team of adventure travel experts that connect members with the very best tour operators and destinations on earth.

“Intrepid Travel is a great example of the kind of tour operator we want to partner with,” states Vargas. “The quality of Intrepid’s trips, as well as their focus on sustainable tourism, aligns perfectly with our brand values.”

Starting on Monday, July 8, fans of The Clymb on Facebook will have the chance to win the trip of a lifetime. The “Seven Trips in Seven Days” Facebook app will showcase a total of 21 international trips and ask fans to vote for their favorite each day. By participating, fans are automatically entered into a contest to win the trip that receives the most votes that day. Trips include room, board, adventure activities and airfare.
