About Our Woman Vacations

Open MarketEstablished in 1987, Adventure Associates is an ecologically sensitive adventure-based travel company specializing in small-group, international and domestic active travel programs. We are passionate about adventure travel for women.

Our programs involve moving beyond the familiar and learning about ourselves and our world in the process. We are committed to fostering an ethic of care with respect to self, the natural world, diverse cultures, and one another.

Whether you are looking for

look to us for year-round women's adventure tours and trips.

When women travel together there is a network of support created in which each independent woman is motivated to create change and nurture her own strength. Whether it be small changes in her personal life or a new commitment to act in a positive way impacting the global community, each woman traveller has a voice. Women travelling together find camaraderie and a place to talk about commonalities and differences. The woman traveler is confident and takes initiative with new activities and new responsibilities. Routine is broken; roles change. When she travels to new horizons or turns to the outdoors, she encounters infinite gifts: physical adventure, spiritual enlightenment, unencumbered freedom and deep-rooted connection. Adventure Associates invites women to discover these gifts through active adventure tours - review the calendar below and sign up today!
