Adventure Women Inc

Description

Celebrating our 32nd year in 2014, AdventureWomen® has been a pioneer in women’s vacations and adventure travel since 1982. “First and Still the Best” in worldwide adventure travel for active women over 30, our adventure vacations are for women traveling solo, or with sisters, mothers, daughters, and friends. We offer small, congenial, non-smoking groups for all ability levels. Our trips are carefully researched and designed, and combine the best in women’s travel with safety and comfort, luxury and adventure. We encourage women to follow their passions for action, personal challenge, or well-deserved R&R.Our typical adventurer at AdventureWomen is 35-65+ years old. She’s quite satisfied with her life and successful in her current job or situation. The majority of women who travel with us are or have been married and have between one and three children. AdventureWomen are confident about how they look and feel, and make an effort to stay in good physical condition. AdventureWomen come from all over the country and the world.Why do AdventureWomen adventure?Time and again, our guests tell us that they like to travel with us on our adventure travel vacations so they can meet new people and challenge themselves by learning a new skill or activity. They want a vacation package that is out of the ordinary. They want to be physically active and venture out on their own, unfettered by the responsibilities of home and workWhy do they come back?More than 70% of our guests are repeat customers. They tell us they “feel great” about themselves—more confident, productive, and adventurous—after they get home from one of our vacations. So, they travel with us year after year to adventure in new destinations.Just what is an “adventure vacation” and who should go?At AdventureWomen, we want all participants to understand that our trips are adventure travel vacations and not “tours.” We define adventure travel as travel in which one actively participates, as opposed to a tour, where one is more or less a passive observer. We have activity ratings for each of our trips, such as Easy, Moderate, or High Energy. This means that you won’t be surprised by the level of activity on your chosen adventure, and you can get into shape accordingly. Adventure vacations, by nature, also require that participants be relatively self-sufficient, flexible, and able to accept travel situations as they exist, accepting that things may not always happen exactly as one would prefer or expect. The constraints of group traveling also necessitate that each of us be understanding of and sensitive to others who are sharing your trip experience. And last but not least, in the spirit of adventure travel, the most essential gear we ask participants to bring is a sense of humor.Rediscover your fun-loving, confident self!
