Explorer Chicks love adventure and playing outdoors wherever their travels may lead them. With this in mind, we weave plenty of exercise into our adventure-packed itineraries. (But shhh… don’t tell your brain. It thinks you’re just playing and having fun.) Each of our women’s fitness vacations is meticulously curated to include activities that balance and enhance our adventures. Women depart Explorer Chick trips stronger and leaner.

Grow stronger while you vacation

We go beyond the standard format of just offering fitness classes during our adventure tours. Instead, enjoy activities that will equally strengthen your body and mind. Immerse in the outdoors by playing in a natural playground.

Work your shoulders and back while swimming with whale sharks. Test your grip strength swinging on a trapeze. Summit a mountain while building your calves and endurance. Learn new skills, discover new strengths, and find out just what your beautiful body is capable of.

All fitness levels and abilities welcome

Ready to begin or need to get back on track? Booking an adventure with us may be just what you need to kickstart—or restart—your fitness routine. Most of our retreats are open to all fitness levels, but we highly recommend training before your arrival. Otherwise, some of the adventures may prove very challenging and leave you feeling sore and frustrated.
