Darrell Wade

Co-Founder & Chairman

Intrepid Travel

A backpacker with a vision, Darrell co-founded Intrepid Travel, today the world’s largest adventure travel company and a certified B Corp, with his mate Geoff ‘Manch’ Manchester in 1989. Their vision was simple: to offer a new style of low-impact travel that connected travellers with communities.
Today, Darrell is regarded as one of travel’s most influential leaders and he plays an instrumental role in advancing the industry’s sustainability agenda through his activism and philanthropy, and also serves as Chair of the Intrepid Foundation. He is best known, however, for being “the tall guy with the big laugh.”
