Our annual Baja Gray Whales Women’s Adventure

The planning is done for you.

Green Edventures help International Becoming an Outdoors Woman participants feel like National Geographic explorers, and scientists, without actually being one. Our goal is to make it easy to follow your heart to your dream adventure. Green Edventures trips are no ordinary tours. On our adventures for women, we teach you how to explore wild places for a unique experience. You may feel a little out of your comfort zone, but our team will be there to support you through it. Almost all of the experiences we offer can be done by any woman who is healthy and who is semi-active. With one click, a trip of a lifetime is within your reach.

Our Promise To You:

Many women who sign up with International Becoming an Outdoors Woman are first time travelers and solo female travelers. From the time you sign up, until you reach the destination you will have the contact and support of your trip leader. Each trip has a Facebook Group where participants can get to know each other and ask questions before the trip.  Packing lists and other supplemental information will help you prepare for each adventure. The Pre-trip Departure Packet will provide you with detailed airport arrival and meeting instructions. For those women who are not comfortable booking their own airfare, our travel agent can assist you with that.

Our team will help you navigate COVID entry and testing requirements and each destination. Due to the increasing complexity of travel for unvaccinated travelers, we are requiring all participants to be be fully vaccinated.

Group travel basics:

Group sizes are typically 10-16 with the average being 12 participants. Each trip is led by an expert local guide and supported by a Green Edventures’ Trip Leader. Group demographics tend to be multi-generational from 30s to 70s but the average age is 55. We travel like a big family and support each other. Most women sign up as solo female travelers, but friends, siblings, parterns, mother-daughters, also sign up.
