The Adventuress is a blog for women with adventurous spirits.
It's a source of inspiration, planning, tips, and advice from experienced travelers and outdoor adventurers
with the extra flair of being for women and by women only.
Adventures in Good Company is an active travel company for women with adventurous spirits. We offer small group adventures that encourage women of all ages to (re)connect with their adventurous selves, physical abilities, other women, different cultures, and the natural world. From hiking to sea kayaking, backpacking to multisport adventures, our vacations are for women who love being active, whether they’re first time travelers or lifelong outdoorswomen. It’s not about how fast you hike or how many passport stamps you have- it’s about taking on a new challenge with the support and friendship of the AGC community. We create experiences of a lifetime for women seeking a new adventure. We handle the logistics so you can fully experience some of the most breathtaking places on earth alongside other curious women and with the support of our experienced guides. Together, we share new experiences. We build community. We eat delicious food. We soak up new cultures. We laugh a lot. And we walk (or paddle, snowshoe, or ski) away with new friendships and a mixture of deep satisfaction and a hunger for our next adventure.
Every year an amazingly diverse group of women join us on our adventures but one thing connects them all- women who travel with us are women who love being outdoors. Some love to camp and sit around a campfire at night, and some love a glass of wine and a cozy bed at the end of the day, but each of them loves spending the day outdoors. Our participants come from all walks of life - stay at home moms, retired women, professional women, teachers, businesswomen, lawyers, etc. as well as all stages of life- with young kids, with grown kids, retiring soon, just retired, just starting a career or family, or single.
Our guides are women who love helping other women reach their goals and have an incredible active travel experience. We strive to create an atmosphere where women feel comfortable being who they are, and where everyone enjoys sharing their similarities and celebrating their differences.
Our goal at AGC is to make sure that you have the trip you want. We always have 2 guides (unless it's a very small group) and we design our itineraries to maximize flexibility. Whether your goal is to immerse yourself in the culture and cuisine of a foreign country or explore the National Parks, there is a trip- and an excited guide- for every adventurous woman. We want to create a space where you feel supported in following your own agenda, whether that's to challenge yourself or to take some much needed R&R. It's your trip. We think that groups form the strongest bonds when individual needs and wants are being met.
