Quick Facts

For over 40 years, AdventureWomen has offered more than 50 exciting trips, traveling to 65 countries worldwide. Our adventure travel collection includes treasured classic destinations, off-the-beaten-path adventures, and closer-to-home escapes.

We are a women-owned and women-run company founded in 1982 by travel pioneer Susan Eckert. In 2016, Judi Wineland and her two daughters, Nicole and Erica, purchased the company, ensuring the spirit of AdventureWomen continues forward. In 1978, Judi was one of the first women to launch and run an adventure travel company, Overseas Adventure Travel. A few years later, she founded Tanzanian safari operator Thomson Safaris and subsequently created Thomson Treks, Thomson Family Adventures, and Thomson Collection. Judi, her daughters, passionate staff, and a worldwide Ambassador team have led  AdventureWomen to the forefront of women’s adventure travel.
