AdventureWomen is a women-owned and women-run adventure travel company founded by adventure travel pioneer, Susan Eckert, which operates tours exclusively for women. We run exceptional and unique adventures that we hand-craft with women in mind. Collectively, we have been to more than 65 countries around the world, and we know what it takes to put together an extraordinary travel experience from start to finish.

We believe travel is one of the greatest tools we have for promoting understanding among cultures. Group travel for women not only connects us with others, but also helps us better understand ourselves.

Why "women only"? The dynamic is different! 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.

Promoting a healthy lifestyle is also something we believe strongly in at AdventureWomen: staying active; creating challenges and goals for ourselves; being open to learning, both spiritually and culturally, during our travels; all the while confirming or rediscovering our fun-loving and confident selves. We all need enriching experiences to restore and energize our spirits. Group travel for women offers you a myriad of opportunities to do just that. We look forward to seeing you on an AdventureWomen trip, as we continue to expand our horizons and deepen our understanding of this fascinating, ever-changing world.
