Adventures in Good Company

Say good-bye to the stress and clutter of daily life. Reconnect with what is truly essential. Spend a few days—or a few weeks—in the peace and splendor of some of the world’s most beautiful natural locations. Reinvigorate your mind…rejuvenate your body…nurture your spirit. And share the adventure with other active women as you laugh, support, and inspire each other to take on new challenges, both on your journey and in your life.

No matter your age or your level of fitness, we have an active vacation for you. We invite all women to join us for hiking, canoeing, sea kayaking, dog sledding, cultural explorations, wildlife viewing, cross-country skiing, rock climbing, or rafting.

Adventurous Wench

Adventurous Wench

Enjoy an active vacation for women - adventures by day, and superb food and comfort at night.  You'll find women's touches like spa visits or cooking classes, too.  It's easier & safer than going on your own, and so much more fun!

“Travel teaches tolerance.  All of a sudden, we're the foreigners.  We see that though others may look or act differently, there's an underlying commonality, and we learn respect.  Nobody's superior, we're all just trying to live our lives as best we can.  Natural wonders uplift the spirit, and put our petty problems in perspective.  Adventure stretches our capabilities and sense of self.” - Deanna Keahey, founder of Adventurous Wench

It's not always easy for women to travel on their own.  Adventurous Wench was founded to help other women experience the fascination, the exploration, the connection, the growth, the sense of accomplishment, and the joy.

Arctic Ladies

Arctic Ladies

We design our tours with you, the fun-seeking, adventurous woman in mind. Women participating in our adventures come from all aspects of life, making our trips more interesting. Whether you are looking for a leisure vacation or a moderate to high-energy adventure you will find the Arctic Ladies trip that is a perfect fit for you.

We keep group sizes small; we want you to remember the beautiful nature, not for nature to remember you. Traveling in small groups also means that each Arctic Lady plays an active role in the adventure. This participation guarantees a richer experience and promises to foster long-lasting friendships.

Call of the Wild

Call of the Wild pioneered adventure travel for women back in 1978. Today we are the longest-running women's adventure travel company in the world. Our women-only trips range from active vacations with soft beds, hot showers and great food to challenging or beginner backpacking.

Canyon Calling

Canyon Calling: Adventures for Women

Canyon Calling leads women’s adventure trips worldwide. Their unique vacations for women combine a group of five different outdoor quests. A typical schedule includes hiking, rafting, sea kayaking, walking a glacier, soaking in hot pools and horseback riding all in one week. These vacations are the magical way to take time out from one’s daily responsibilities. Prices for these trips are all-inclusive and the groups are kept small. They are also for non-smokers and moderately fit women, though no prior experience is necessary.

Going Places Tours

Going Places Tours

Going Places! would like nothing better than to enhance your life by providing a high quality, outdoor experience. We believe that traveling is best done in small groups and on foot. You see so much more this way. Your overall experience is much richer than if you are part of a madding crowd riding around in a tour bus on a busy highway and staying at a hotel that caters to conventions. 

We feature small, personal cafes and inns that are locally owned and operated and offer special insights into each unique destination with knowledgeable guides, visits to museums, gardens or historical monuments, as well through the regional cuisine. Going Places! takes great pride in seeking out opportunities to get up close and personal with the people, history and culture of every place we visit.

Gutsy Women Travel

Gutsy Women Travel

We believe that there is a Gutsy Woman inside each of us, one who occasionally needs to make time for herself to refresh and renew the mind, spirit and body. Over the last three years, GutsyWomen Travel has been developing a community of women who understand that concept, and who have turned to us for the opportunity to recharge their energies in the company of other like-minded women and in fascinating destinations.

Who is the Gutsy Woman traveler? They are homemakers, caregivers, educators and businesswomen. They are mothers, daughters, sisters and best friends. They have included affinity-groups (sorority reunions, professional organizations) who want a girls-only event. They have been both well-traveled individuals curious to interface with their counterparts in another culture and women who have never found the opportunity to explore the world outside their community--until now.

Gutsy Women Travel tours fall into three basic categories: GutsyCulture, GutsyAdventure, and GutsyCuisine, although tours in each category contain some combination of the other elements. Each program fosters a woman-friendly atmosphere not found on a standard tour. When you give yourself--or someone close to you--the gift of time and the gift of bonding, we’re ready to provide the trip that will fill that bill.
