Camping Adventure Tours for Women

Are you ready to get fresh air in your lungs and spend quality time in the great outdoors? Well pull out the hiking boots and campfire snacks for a camping adventure with your new favorite group of fun-loving ladies!

Whether you’re interested in glamping at established campgrounds with a real mattress and electricity or backpacking into the wilderness for some primitive backcountry camping, we’ve got a trip for you. Spend your days hiking in national parks and going on adventures with your new besties. And in the evening? Kick back at the campground with delicious food, marvel at the insane amount of stars (yes, that is the ENTIRE milky way!), and ugly cry-laugh about the day’s adventures with new and old friends.

What to Expect on a Camping Trip with Explorer Chick

No matter the trip length or location, your Explorer Chick camping trip will have expert guides, breathtaking scenery, and a group of supportive, adventurous women. We take care of the pesky travel details like campsite reservations, hiking permits, gear, meals, and itineraries. But the bonding that happens around the campfire at night? The friends you make toughing it out in the mountains? Those famous SHE-nanigans? THAT’S where the real Explorer Chick magic happens.

Our trips welcome all types of women and all ages from 20s to 60s and above. If you love to hike, get outside, and have a good time, come play with us!

Explorer Chick Camping Trip Reviews

First trip w/ Explorer Chick and was outstanding!! The only thing I would’ve done differently is actually train more. Jenn and Lauren were excellent guides. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone thinking about going. I flew into the Knoxville airport, rented a car and drove to the campsite. Easy airport to get in and out. Prior to trip, good communication. Answered all my questions in a timely manner. Good experience all around.

So much fun. I’ll be back next year. Met a great bunch of women of every variety. Truly appreciate all the support from the repelling and climbing gang Sunday morning. I was terrified but everyone cheered me on and helped me conquer my fears. I may not jump at the chance to do it again but I can at least say I did it once. Being in the front of the raft is a blast. Literally. Blasted with water on every rapid so refreshing. SUP quite the challenge going up river and fighting the current. Beautiful day and lots of fun paddling no where fast. Think I might stick to lake SUP for a while. Got really good at getting back on the board after falling off a few times.

I spent 4 days hiking the Grand Canyon with 5 other incredible women. 30 miles, a 40lb pack, one radioactive creek, and lots of great conversations to learn about each other. It was amazing! Explorer Chick Adventure Co. sure knows how to create a trip to come out a better person at the end. “Easy doesn’t change you.”

The most epic adventure trip I’ve ever been on! Having something extremely fun every single day.

It had gals with different physical shape and body sizes and everyone did great! Lots of rock scrambling and so many hot springs to soak in! This is by far one of the best trips I think they offer! It’s so nice to know your food was all paid for ahead of time, and never worried about spending more money. The camping food from dinner to breakfast felt gourmet and the restaurants were DELICIOUS!!!
