Girlfriend getaways have been a trend that’s gotten a lot of attention in the travel world in recent years, and 2014 will be no exception with these emerging trends in women’s travel:
1. Learn Something New or Improve a Skill
For women who want a bit more out of their vacation than just the usual “unplugged” holiday, some getaways offer women travelers the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zone and learn something totally new, or maybe just to brush up on a skill that’s a bit rusty. A good example: Learn the ins and outs of downhill skiing while basking in the stunning beauty of Montana’s wilderness with a Downhill Ski Clinic. From beginner to advanced skier, you will learn to ski or improve your skiing in a non-competitive atmosphere with top-notch instructors, luxury accommodations, and more.
2. Get Fit and Get Active
Some women crave a relaxing getaway but don’t necessarily equate relaxation with total inactivity. Active and adventure travel offers women a more physical way to unwind, such as diving and snorkeling in the British Virgin Islands. You will spend almost a week in paradise on a luxury trimaran sailboat—the world’s largest—as your home base.
If the ocean isn’t your preferred dream destination, you can always vote to experience gourmet food, famous wines, and stunning scenery on an unforgettable AdventureWomen trip in Europe. See our hikes in Europe for 2014: Provence, France; Scotland; and The Camino Pilgrimage Hike.
3. Lend a Hand While Experiencing Something Exotic
It’s possible to use a vacation for “the greater good” without having to sacrifice creature comforts. AdventureWomen offers women travelers the chance to visit exotic destinations such as Kenya for once in a lifetime adventures including humanitarian experiences. Travel well. Do good.
In the past year, there has been a lot of buzz about the National Parks. Yes, it is amazing to travel internationally, but having a classic American travel experience in one of the National Parks is coming back in style. Who knew such treasures could be found in our own back yard? AdventureWomen, offers women travelers unique ways to experience America’s greatest treasures. See our Glacier Hike for 2014!
5. Complete Your “Bucket List” while Changing Your Perspective on Life
No longer are women craving the same, cookie-cutter resort vacations. Adventure travel is taken to a new level in 2014 as women who want to “seize the day” are choosing vacations that are life-changing, life-altering, and chosen from their “bucket list”.
