I always wanted to meet orangutans in the wild. Going with AW to Indonesia was the way to do it. We had great local guides, delicious food, and magical experiences. Everything was taken care of. The diverse group of women made the time even more enriching. I started as a solo traveler, but within a day I had 14 new friends. I can totally see traveling with AW again.

Riding horses in Iceland was the trip of the lifetime. Our guide, Meike Witt, was a dream -- fun, warm, easy-going, supportive, and super-competent. The whole trip was so carefully thought out to build our abilities and show us some of the most gorgeous places in addition to the riding. And AdventureWomen was so helpful organizing the trip and a second week of traveling with my husband. Even when our daughter decided to join us at the last minute, they accommodated us. Everything was perfect! I would definitely travel with them again.

Just got back from hiking the Highlands of Scotland. The trip was fabulous. The scenery outstanding. Guillian, our fearless leader, was outstanding with her knowledge of the area. The side trips were fun-foraging in the forests for food and visiting the Island of Eigg. Our hikes were up to 10 miles a day. Weather was perfect.

This past Fall, I went to Nepal with Adventure Women for my birthday. It was an awesome trip. Not only was it a fantastic cultural adventure, and a really great hike!!! but it was so well organized.
One thing I was impressed with was that our group of women could not have been more amazing. Each person had their unique story that was as interesting as the trip. No one knew each other before the trip, yet we all shared a common bond and love of travel.
Would I do it all again. Absolutely!!! As a matter of fact, I am heading to Machu Picchu with Adventure Women this fall -- yes, again for my birthday!

Everything was taken care of for me, all I had to do was show up and be ready for adventure... now that's a vacation! The staff is incredibly helpful and the guides were outstanding. They were knowledgeable, fun, hardworking, and always had a pulse on how each guest was feeling. I like that they offered alternate hiking routes on the more challenging hiking days.

The camaraderie in the group was off the charts! By the second day, I felt like I was traveling with my close friends. It was an experience I will always remember and treasure.

Stride Review

Founded in 1982, Adventure Women is all about encouraging women to travel adventurously.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Founded on the mantra that women in all cultures “relish the freedom to experience new things away from limiting, societal expectations”, Adventure Women strives to create exciting tours for women looking to step beyond their comfort zone. They promote a healthy lifestyle, and guests leave their trips feeling more confident, fit, and adventurous than before. Their trips are about seeing the world in a culturally immersive way, staying active, and getting involved with local communities.

Who Travels With Them?

Trips are women-only, and generally geared toward travels from 35-65. Most are solo, however groups of friends or mothers and daughters/nieces often enjoy their trips as well. Trips have various levels of physical fitness required from Easy to High Energy. Every trip has an element of active travel - such as hiking or river rafting.

Where Do They Operate?

Their unique and authentic tours go all over the world, from bear watching in Alaska to the remote Baffin Island in the Arctic. It changes year by year where their trips will be focused, but every year the adventure component and focus on local cultural activities remains the same.

Why Travel With Them?

Adventure Women operates not simply as a tour company, but also as a support group encouraging women to leave the pressures of everyday life behind. It’s a place to find kindred spirits, to relax and enjoy other women’s company, to explore new places and step out of your comfort zone - trying new things with a supportive community around you. They emphasize the necessity of challenging yourself when you travel, being flexible and living in the moment. If you’re looking for a supportive, fun, immersive and active travel experience with a small group of other adventurous women living life on their own terms...this is the travel company for you.

From Adventure Women

During the three and a half decades I’ve spent traveling the world, one driving passion has been a constant: I believe travel is one of the greatest tools we have for promoting world peace and understanding among cultures.

After spending three years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa, I chose to follow my “travel path” by pioneering adventure travel options for women. Planning trips that enable groups of women to travel together safely and in comfort is my way of making a contribution. Group travel for women not only connects us with others, but also helps us better understand ourselves and the collective consciousness of the world.

Why “women only”? Because women in any culture relish the freedom to experience new things away from limiting, societal expectations. We have a unique sense of discovery, an unabashed curiosity, the easy ability to laugh at ourselves and the capacity to create a non-competitive environment of support and encouragement for each other. Under these circumstances, women feel free to challenge themselves with a trek up a mountain, learning to snorkel or scuba dive, or immersion into an unfamiliar culture. On an all-women’s trip, women tell us that they can be totally and unequivocally themselves.
