Adventuress of the Year Campaign

Posted: Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Adventures in Good Company has been guiding women on active vacations for 20 years. In those decades, we've met an astounding number of women who demonstrate what it is to be an Adventuress... and we want to celebrate those women by sending one lucky woman on a FREE trip with Adventures in Good Company in 2019.

We're excited to announce our first Adventuress of the Year Campaign.

Voting over!

This campaign is a chance to reflect on and celebrate the women in our lives who are being profoundly adventurous in the great outdoors. We will highlight all nominees on our website and one adventurous woman will win a free trip + airfare with Adventures in Good Company.

All nominees will receive a $50 credit towards an AGC trip in 2019, all finalists will receive a swag package, and one adventurous woman will receive a free domestic AGC trip + airfare in 2019.

So who qualifies as an adventuress? 

An adventuress is a woman who enjoys and seeks outdoor adventures. These are the women who are challenging themselves to get out of their comfort zone and be active in nature. 

  • Maybe it's your recently retired sister who has always wanted to be a hiker and has finally laced up her hiking boots for the first time ever. 
  • Maybe it's your mom who, after years of raising kids, decided to paddle the Rio Grande with new friends.
  • Maybe it's a close friend who is raising her kids to be outdoor adventurers alongside her.
  • Maybe it's YOU, and you've been adventuring your entire life and have recently completed a goal that you set for yourself years ago. 

 Vote Now
