About Adventurous Wench
Adventurous Wench, established in 2003, specializes in high-quality active trips for women. Guests enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking or sailing, along with excellent cuisine, fine accommodations, and knowledgeable guides. Our trips are ideal for single women — it’s so much easier, safer, and more fun, than going on vacation all by yourself.
Our small groups create a very different feeling than large tour groups do. Guests soon come to feel like they’re out with a group of friends, rather than being herded about. Most of our guests are solo travelers, and even if you come on your own, you’ll soon feel like you’re with friends.
Most of our guests are single women, but we get about 30% married women, too. Perhaps their husband doesn’t like to travel, or only enjoys fishing trips. This is a great way to take separate vacations they can both feel good about.
Trips vary from a 3-day hiking trip to Sedona, to a 7-day sailing trip in the Virgin Islands, to an 11-day Patagonia exploration (and many other options too).
