Pro Age Travel

Don’t you dare dye your grays or hide your joint supplements to come along on our mind-blowing adventures. Spoiler Alert: you. are. the. adventure.

Welcome to Age-Inclusive Travel, where women in their 30s and 40s link arms with badass sistas in their 60s. Yep, you might think you don’t have anything in common with the next generation, but the second you’re howling from a mountain summit after 3 hours hiking with screaming thighs, you quickly realize it’s the love for the outdoors and the singularity in womanhood that instantly bonds us all.

The age limit is simply over 21, so there is only knowing your body and choosing the appropriate experience. 

Every trip page rates and details the physical demands required. If in doubt, check with your doctor, do some stair climber conditioning to Rihanna, and hike up those compression socks!

We’ve guided women in full-blown menopause down waterfalls. Got a whack bladder? We stop for all the pee breaks. You can drop your guide a heads up on any special needs you may have and she will do her ever-loving best to accommodate you.

Plus? The women journeying with you are likely going through similar stuff. You’ll be surprised how open and supportive the convos get after you sweat it out on a trail all day.

We’re gonna love the crap out of you.

From Our Explorer Chicks

Lisa B.Lisa B. ★★★★★ So I just finished my Red River Gorge backpacking trip and it was terrific! I learned so much from my awesome guide Janie. She was so very knowledgeable and experienced and taught us everything we needed to know about backpacking, leave no trace and empowering women. The trail was tough at times but very rewarding in the end. The challenge is what makes you stronger emotionally and physically. Being a 54 year old woman it proves your never too old to try something new.Thank you Janie and Explorer Chicks for a great weekend :)Lisa BTiffany V.Tiffany V. ★★★★★ We had an amazing adventure in Moab in October 2021! The women in our group were the perfect mix and we all connected immediately! Our fearless leaders were also top notch! Lindsey Terrell went above and beyond to make sure there was “no girl left behind” as some of us took a slower approach to our adventure. She was so competent, encouraging and simply so incredibly kind! Explorer Chicks is a wonderful opportunity for women to go with a friend or go it alone! Simply amazing adventure!Tracey B.Tracey B. ★★★★★ I can’t say enough positive things about this Women led business that focuses on empowering all Woman to challenge themselves (Easy Doesn’t Change You). I recently completed my 5th trip with Explorer Chicks last week -I did the four day Smokey Mountain hike.Before my first trip in 2018 I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up. Clearly one has to have a base level of fitness to sign up for backpacking/10+miles per day of hiking but the trips are structured in such a way to accommodate women of varying fitness levels. After 5 trips I can assure you that Explorer Chicks attract a very diverse group. For my Smokies trip Ages ranged from 30s to 60s. My co-hikers came from all over the country with different ethnicities and backgrounds.The guides are what really make this company unique (shout out to Lauren and Kimberly). Explorer Chicks hires partners who excel at building a cohesive group. In this trip only two of the hikers knew each other before the trip. The remaining 8 were solo travelers. By the end of the trip we were all exchanging contact info and posting our experiences to the various social media platforms.Quick review for the Smoky Mountain hiking/glamping tripDay 1 challenging 12 mile up/back hike to the top of MT Cammerer. 3k mile elevation gain… I think everyone’s feet were a little tired. The trail was rocky but as one who hates going downhill with a passion doable with no major slipsDay 2: we changed up a bit due to group dynamics (and weather) and did what I would call a nature walk up to a pretty waterfall followed by a tour of a historic town/picnic lunch. We had a few hours back at the luxury camping site to swim/nap then we headed into Gatlinburg for a moonshine/wine tasting tourDay3: we did a beautiful 7 mile hike to Charlie’s Bunion. The views at the top were fabulous. We got hammered by a storm on the way down. But even the rain didn’t dampen the experienceI totally support this company and will travel with them again. They have trips all over the US and to some really cool non US destinations.js_loader
