Living the Cowgirl Life

Join us for a week of fun at an historic dude ranch near Wyoming's Snowy Mountains. A place of peace and quiet, our ranch combines time in the outdoors with comfortable lodging and hearty meals at night, away from cell phones and the internet. Combine riding well-trained horses, fly fishing in the local pond or river, and hiking through beautiful landscape with soaking in a hot tub, sitting on the porch while you read a book, and enjoying delicious meals - this week can be as relaxing or as active as you choose. Everyone has her own room on this trip.

Blue Ridge Rambling

The Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina are rich with scenic beauty, opportunities for outdoor adventure, and deep cultural traditions. During our six days we'll combine moderate hiking and whitewater rafting with visiting some of the area's iconic destinations, including the Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, and Folk Art Center.

Slackpacking Virginia

Have you been dreaming of hiking a section of the Appalachian Trail, but you just cannot see yourself carrying a heavy pack and sleeping in shelters without a hot shower? We have the perfect solution- slackpacking! Hike a new section every day and get picked up at the end for a hot meal, shower, and a comfortable bed. We've been doing the first and last sections of the Appalachian Trail this way for years and have added Virginia in-between!

Autumn on Cape Cod

Autumn on Cape Cod is spectacular! The whales and birds are migrating, the air is crisp and clear, and the hordes of summer tourists have left. Join us for a week of hiking, kayaking, biking, and exploring the natural history of this remarkable area.

Big Bend Exploring and Hiking

Untouched, under-touristed, and a little bit funky, take a trip to Big Bend this winter for a chance to discover Texas’s unexpected natural beauty. Trek into the Chisos Mountains, paddle down the Rio Grande, and marvel at the diverse desert beauty of West Texas. This trip brings you into the heart of the region with hiking in Big Bend State Park and Big Bend National Park, paddling the Rio Grande and a trek up into the Chisos Mountains. This desert that on first glance seems so lifeless, is filled with hardy vegetation and a myriad of desert creatures. We think the Big Bend Region is a world set apart and suspect you will too. This late winter destination is one of the few places in the U.S. where outdoor activities are encouraged in February. We agree with the the folks in the Big Bend region- “West Texas is the Best Texas!”

Hiking Bryce and Zion National Parks

Sometimes you just want to fit in as much hiking in a short period as you possibly can, and that is what we have planned for this four-day getaway. We spend three nights in Zion Canyon with a day trip over to Bryce for one of its premiere hikes. The cool weather and quiet of late fall are delightful for hiking. You’ll see towering hoodoos, slithering slot canyons, and Emerald Pools. Spend your nights in the park’s lodges and rustic cabins, to rest well and get ready for another day of exploration.

Paradise in Panama

Panama is a tropical paradise not to be missed! A hidden gem less visited than its neighbors and featuring an incredible variety of ecosystems - it is easy to feel that you have gotten off the beaten track here. We'll spend nine days exploring this beautiful country as we visit the both the bustling capital city and the remote and pristine Caribbean islands.

It was a well planned, perfectly paced trip. This was my first all women's trip and I found it to be good energy and lots of fun. My goal was to see Wales, I got to see even more than I had anticipated.

There is nothing better than being with a group of women who are having fun and learning about their own strengths.
