Backpacking

Experienced backpacker? Complete noob? Our backpacking trips for women offer something for everyone! Learn basic skills with one of our workshops, or join challenging treks in National Parks.

OUR BACKPACKING TRIPS FOR WOMEN

From a hut-to-hut trek in the wild backcountry of Canada to an overnight backpacking workshop in Red River Gorge, we offer adventures for every experience level. Step out of your comfort zone and into adventure with some of the best female guides in the business. Fall asleep under the stars or in a cozy alpine hut. Learn to cook over a crackling campfire while exchanging hilarious stories with your fellow Explorer Chicks. Luxuriate in a hot tub before tackling some ice climbing. Conquer Yosemite’s Half Dome cables like a boss. Get motivated, show up, and let us take care of the pesky details. Look, we don’t care if your pedicure is chipped or you count dry shampoo and a second layer of deodorant as “showering”—just come play with us!

We also offer a variety of lighter-pack hiking trips.

THE EXPLORER CHICK EXPERIENCE

Why book your backpacking trip with us? Because we’re awesome. (Duh.) Oh—and we also provide:

  • All equipment (tents, sleeping bags, cookware, etc.)
  • Delicious meals
  • An experienced, professional female guide
  • A detailed travel guide specific to your trip
  • A custom-designed t-shirt created by a female artist
  • A small group experience for women only
  • The freedom to actually enjoy your trip!

We do not dish out soft adventures—but can guarantee plenty of SHE-nanigans: hysterical laughter, unladylike behavior, strings of cuss words, and general feelings of badassery. You in?
