Exploring the World Through Women-Only Adventure Travel

Ever found yourself dreaming of an epic adventure, only to have no one able to join you? Maybe there’s conflicting schedules, anxious partners, family commitments, or perhaps, no one who shares the same travel style.

What’s a gal to do when she’s itchin’ for adventure but traveling solo isn’t quite the vibe she’s after?

Enter: Adventure group travel trips for women.

In recent years, there has been a huge surge in the popularity of travel groups specially curated for solo women. According to Solo Traveler World, a whopping 64% of all travelers worldwide are women, with 84% of these being solo female travelers!

Let that sink in for a minute.

Female solo travel isn’t just a trend; it’s a movement embracing the spirit of exploration, independence, and self discovery. Because let’s face it, traveling on your own can feel intimidating!

Joining a women’s travel group provides a safe environment for you to explore the world on your own terms, side-by-side with professional guides and a supportive community of like-minded ladies.

So why should you grab your suitcase and join the ultimate gal-pal adventure, where solo female travel meets sisterhood and sass?

Below we spill the tea on solo female group travel benefits and why they’re the Beyoncé of travel experiences— flawless and empowering.

The Rise of Travel Groups

Picture this: a squad of fabulous women, ready to conquer the world — but in hiking boots. The rise of travel groups for single women is like the superhero sisterhood cape every solo traveler needs.

Safety stands out as the top concern when solo traveling and joining a women’s travel group means vetted destinations, activities, accommodations, and professional guides to take the lead.

But it’s not just about safety; women’s travel groups are also about creating a sisterhood of Wonder Women — you’re sure to walk away with lasting friendships while discovering some of the best destinations for solo female travelers.

 

Benefits of Joining Women-Only Travel Groups

There are tons of solo travel benefits that you won’t find from other types of travel.

Joining a female travel group provides the chance to explore new destinations in a safe and supportive environment, allowing you to step out of your comfort zones and experience new adventures.

It’s not just about ticking off bucket list places on a map; women’s group travel tours are about fostering lifelong friendships that echo the spirit of shared exploration while empowering you to live your best life and breaking free from conventional constraints.

1 Empowerment and Independence

Group tours for solo female travelers serve as catalysts for independence and confidence, providing a transformative journey that goes waaaay beyond the actual destination.

These tours aren’t just about visiting new places— they become platforms for rewriting personal stories, letting your inner-child out to play, challenging societal norms of what women “should” be like, and empowering women to navigate the world with confidence and independence.

It doesn’t matter how old you are — it’s all about the journey to reconnect with YOU. No distractions, no responsibilities.

So get ready to unlock your inner superhero cape. We’re not saying you’ll come back with a theme song, but it’s not entirely out of the question ????.

2 Safety and Comfort in Numbers

Traveling alone can feel intimidating and scary, especially when you’re exploring unfamiliar destinations.

And of the MANY benefits of female solo travel groups, safety comes first. We love the motto “safety first, sass second”. Traveling on a tour is like having a squad of bodyguards (but with more sparkle and fun). 

Single female travel groups mean vetted itineraries and professional and knowledgeable guides who know the destination well (aka, where to go and where to avoid) — who needs a knight in shining armor when you’ve got an empowered sisterhood in hiking boots?

Traveling in a group also gives peace of mind to you and your loved ones back home, and that’s priceless.

3 Building Lasting Friendships

Move over, Tinder. Women-only travel tours are the ultimate matchmakers. Did you know that 80% of our travelers rock up solo

You don’t have to worry about how to find a hiking partner because you’ll have tons of friendships formed in the trenches of adventure (stronger than a girl gang in a Tarantino film!).

Whether it’s conquering a challenging hike or savoring the flavors of a foreign cuisine, these shared moments become the glue that binds women together. We almost guarantee you’ll find your ride-or-die travel BFF.

These travel experiences cater to creating a community feeling, making it easier for solo female travelers to connect with others and feel part of a supportive and engaging sisterhood that ripples long after the trip over.

From off-the-beaten-path gems to personalized activities, women’s group tours offer unique adventures that are tailored more toward women’s interests.

And these aren’t your grandma’s group tours.

We’re talking experiences as unique as a unicorn at a disco without you needing to lift a finger to plan. Epic adventures in epic locations.

You can choose trips better aligned with your passions, whether it’s an adventure-seeking escapade like hiking and kayaking in Patagonia, a more culturally immersive journey in Jordan, or an epic National Park backpacking weekend.

Your PTO is precious, so don’t worry about lifting a finger on travel planning… just sit back and let the pros handle the perfect itinerary.

Types of Travel Experiences Offered by Women's Travel Groups

Adventure and Outdoor Travel Groups

Picture the rush of adrenaline as you conquer challenging terrains, from heart-pounding canyoneering excursions to soul-stirring hut-to-hut trekking expeditions.

These women’s adventure travel tours delve into nature’s playground, kayaking through crystal-clear waters and sharing champagne at mountain summits amid the tranquility of the wilderness.

Women’s adventure travel tours are also a great place to learn new skills (or expand on existing ones!) like backpacking, canyoneering, and white water rafting, where each challenge becomes an opportunity to learn and grow your outdoor skills.

Beyond the thrill of outdoor adventures lie myriad of benefits— improved physical health, a boost in mental well-being, and a profound connection with nature’s raw beauty.

Luxury and Wellness Travel Groups

Luxury, darling — who doesn’t love a little pampering? It IS vacation after all!

Immerse yourself in the tranquility of nature, finding rejuvenation and relaxation amid stunning landscapes. Picture glamping in style, where adventure meets a spa day.

Just say no to “roughing it”; these group tours are about the balance between pampering and adventure. It’s the perfect mix of the thrill of the outdoors with the comforts of luxury accommodations (which sometimes means a refugio instead of a backpacking tent!) and activities.

Imagine sleeping in five star luxury bush camps in Africa or glamping under desert stars in Jordan… while still getting your hands a little dirty during the day!

Why choose between adventure and a fluffy robe when you can have both?

Destination:

  • Does the company offer the destinations you dream of exploring?
  • Read the detailed itineraries to find one that matches your interests and preferences.
  • What’s included in the tour package? Meals? Accommodation? All activities? Be read to read the fine print!

 

Group Size:

  • Are you looking for an intimate group size or a larger, more dynamic group?

 

Travel Style:

  • Do the tours align with your preferred travel style— adventurous, cultural, or more relaxation?
  • Does the tour activity level match your preferences for physical exertion?

 

Vibe of the Group:

  • Research the group’s atmosphere and dynamics—are they laid-back, energetic, or somewhere in between?
  • Read testimonials or reviews to gauge the overall vibe from past participants.
