Explore These Five Trends In Women’s Travel for 2011

Girlfriend getaways have been a trend that’s gotten a lot of attention in the travel world in recent years, and 2011 will be no exception with these emerging trends in women’s travel:

1.    Learn something new or improve a skill:

For women that want a bit more out of their vacation than just the usual “unplugged” holiday, some getaways offer women travelers the opportunity to step outside of their comfort zone and learn something totally new, or maybe just to brush up on a skill that’s a bit rusty. A good example: Learn the ins and outs of downhill skiing while basking in the stunning beauty of Montana’s wilderness with a downhill ski clinic. From beginner to advanced skier, women learn to ski or improve their skiing skills in a non-competitive atmosphere with top-notch instructors, luxury accommodations, and more.

2.    Get fit and get active:

Some women crave a relaxing getaway but don’t necessarily equate relaxation with total inactivity. Active and adventure travel offers people a more physical way to unwind on their vacation. AdventureWomen, Inc. offers vacations like a diving and snorkeling tour to the British Virgin Islands--women spend almost a week in paradise on a luxury trimaran sailboat—the world’s largest—as their home base. If the ocean isn’t the preferred dream destination, women can experience the gourmet food, famed wines, and stunning scenery on an unforgettable hiking tour through Burgundy in France, a brand new trip offered by AdventureWomen in 2011. 

3.    Lend a hand while experiencing something exotic:

It’s possible to use a vacation for “the greater good” without having to sacrifice creature comforts. AdventureWomen, Inc. is offering women travelers the chance to visit Kenya for a once in a lifetime luxury safari experience and humanitarian tour. In addition to unforgettable highlights like visiting the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve, having the quintessential luxury safari camp experience, and seeing the evidence of Jane Goodall’s work first-hand, travelers have the chance to participate hands-on in special philanthropic projects that support Kenya’s women and children.

4.    Discovering America’s greatest treasures:

In the past year, there has been a lot of buzz about the National Parks. Yes, it is amazing to travel internationally, but having a classic American travel experience in one of the National Parks is coming back in style. Who knew such treasures could be found in your own back yard? Whether whitewater rafting down the Mighty Colorado through Canyonland, touring Arches National Park, or discovering corners of Yellowstone that you never knew existed, AdventureWomen, Inc. offers women traveler’s unique ways to experience America’s greatest treasures.

5.    Traveling exclusively for the “Bucket List”

No longer are women craving the same, cookie-cutter resort vacations. Adventure travel is taken to a new level in 2011 as women who want to “seize the day” are choosing vacations that are life-changing, life-altering, and chosen from their “bucket list”. Whether it’s seeing the famed Himalayas on a hiking journey through Nepal or photographing the indigenous wildlife in the Galapagos Islands, AdventureWomen, Inc. makes it possible for women travelers to fulfill their life-long dreams for travel.

AdventureWomen Inc, a pioneer in women’s only travel for active women over 30, is challenging adventurous women the world over to plan a great escape and make 2011 the year to add women’s only adventure to their “bucket lists”. For more information about these tours and more, visit the website at
