Women's Adventure Travel - Gutsy Group Trips for Women

Women's Adventure Travel is a Growing Subset of Adventure Travel

By

Women's adventure travel is a growing subset of adventure travel. Many women - single or married - like the camaraderie of all female group trips.

Susan Eckert, president of AdventureWomen, best explains why: "Because women in any culture relish the freedom to experience new things away from limiting, societal expectations. We have a unique sense of discovery, an unabashed curiosity, the easy ability to laugh at ourselves and the capacity to create a non-competitive environment of support and encouragement for each other. Under these circumstances, women feel free to challenge themselves...."
