Why Choose Us?

Our Explorer Chicks

Explorer Chicks are fierce, strong women who expect to return home from adventure tours with a few scrapes and bruises along with revived gratitude for life. Together, we are community of supportive women drawn together by challenging adventure. We are real women who want to embark on real adventures. 

Our Adventures

We look at an adventure travel destination through the eyes of our eight-year-old daring selves. We think, "What is the most fun and immersive way to play in this location?" Then we let our imaginations run wild. The result is BOLD travel that is proudly not mainstream, but challenging, empowering, and life changing.

Our Team

"Give Explorer Chicks what they never dreamed possible." This is our mantra, empowering us to find our edge so you can push yours. We are your Explorer Chick Advocate with your experience in mind—from the spark of an idea to adventure tour curation with personal service and inevitable SHE-nanigans.

"I highly recommend the Best of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons trip with the Explorer Chicks! We had an awesome, action-packed trip to one of the most beautiful regions in the United States and got to have so many cool experiences like seeing bears, wolves, and bison in the wild, horseback riding in the back country, seeing the geysers erupt, and enjoying the lovely hot springs. This amazing group of women was led by two knowledgeable and supportive guides, Kirsty and Lauren! Well worth the time and money for an unforgettable experience! Thank you, Explorer Chicks!"

"I’ve been having an internal struggle of faith and trust. What a way to gain both! Crossing from one rock to another after a chimney climb took some courage, but mainly trust in Martin…our guide and belayer. The faith came believing the guides I would be safe crawling over, under, or through rocks. Cheers from the gals below was overwhelmingly uplifting too!"

"This trip is amazing, relaxing ,and empowering. If you ever want to do something new, Try it. Sunshine, was perfect."

"So I wasn't on the trip but we meet them on May 2nd 2021 at the top of Ice Water Spring Shelter. What a great and fun loving group! They even had 3 different wines and a charcuterie board which they shared with the other hikers that stopped by. Finding trail magic in town or at road crossings is one thing but finding it on top of a mountain with a beautiful view is something else! The two leaders were energetic and passionate about their duties. I would highly recommended this trip. They all seemed to be having a wonderful time."

"I did this trip with a few of my friends and it was awesome. The trip was well organized and the guides Cassie and Erin are the BEST. Definitely train for this trip as it can be challenging but so worth it. The views were breathtaking and the glamping grounds inviting."

"I originally signed up for this trip to satisfy the Wanderlust I had developed over Covid times. I ended up coming away with so much more than that. I have been reflecting on this since the trip ended (about 36 hours ago) and every time I think about all I have gained I start to tear up. I got to experience amazing hikes that were iconic, gorgeous and challenging. I got to learn skills from our knowledgeable host and guide (Dina - amazing person!) that I know will be building on for years to come. I got to learn self protection skills that were relatable and actionable in my everyday life and lastly but most importantly I got to connect with a group of women and get to know them and their stories very well over the few days we were there together. I really feel that we were all meant to be there together, to learn from each other and support each other. Kimberly was our guide and she was just amazing. I find her so inspiring and she was such an energetic, positive, motivating and hilarious force throughout the whole weekend. This will be my first of many trips with Explorer Chick :-)"

"Our fat tire bike tour was April 24th! Jocelyn, Tommy and Carole were amazing guides! The trail was perfect, with bits of challenges. I had not been on a bike in over 20 years. The saying "Just like Riding a Bike" is true. It comes right back to ya once you get back on a bike. Loved the historical bits provided by Tommy. I highly recommend this trip!"

"VEGAS 2021- What an amazing trip this was. My 2 daughters and I decided to get away and try something new. we were a little hesitant about working with a group to plan the trip and being around other women from different parts of the country as the Pandemic still raging. The entire trip from the first HELLO to the last teary Goodbye was amazing. many little extras thrown in to make this an absolute "once in a lifetime" adventure. Our GUIDE-Cassie, was so happy and positive, her adventurous spirit showed at all times. being new at these adventures we were a little hesitant but the guides made us feel like pro rock climbers, kayakers, campers, and hot spring seekers!! would recommend 1000% for a first trip."

Trip: (Las Vegas Vacation Weekend Adventure)

"This was my first Explorer Chick adventure, and it did not disappoint! We had the most amazing guide, Kirstie! Everything was methodically planned and she kept us entertained and engaged! I spent 4 days, 3 nights and 30 “Grand Canyon” miles (that is what we started calling them) with 5 amazing women! We talked, laughed, shared stories, and worked our asses off hiking the Canyon! The scenery was unreal, and dipping our toes in the Colorado River was such a satisfying experience after making it to the bottom of the Canyon! The 4 days challenged me both physically and mentally and is an experience I will never forget. So many great memories will live on from this adventure with Explore Chicks. I am profoundly grateful for the experience and cannot wait to try another adventure! It was a much needed escape from the bustle of everyday life."
