Frequently Asked Questions
What is the age range of the participants?
This is one of the most common questions we get. All women ages 21 and older are welcome to join our women-only adventures. But, if you must know an actual age range, statistically, the average age of our participants is mid 50’s and beyond. We travel as a small, intimate, family-like group that is supportive and tailored to the group members. We share common interests in nature and outdoor adventure, and grow from learning via everyone’s various life experiences.
Do I need to be in shape to join a women’s travel adventure?
Trips are designed for the beginner and tailored to the individual. Anyone who is healthy, loves to try new experiences, and is seeking an active, educational vacation should join this trip regardless of their prior experience. Local guides will teach you the skills you need to have a safe and fun experience.
I’m not as ________ as I used to be. Will I hold the group back during activities?
No, you will never hold up the group regardless of what word you fill in the blank with. With each activity there is always a variation to accommodate individuals, and we are happy to do it! Our guides want you to have a safe and fun learning experience. Give us a call or shoot over an email so we can discuss your concerns.
Do women usually travel with a friend or go solo?
Both! The groups are usually equally split between solo travelers and those traveling with a friend. If you are traveling solo, you will be paired with a roommate.
Do solo travelers get charged a single supplement?
There are no forced single supplements. On some trips, we offer single supplements for those who want their own room when they are available.
