In 1982, when AdventureWomen® was founded, more than a few skeptical eyebrows were raised. The idea of adventure travel for women going to exotic destinations on vacations designed especially for women, by women, was very novel. Happily, times have changed! Here founder Susan Eckert writes about the Adventure Women who have joined her.
Who Are AdventureWomen®?
Our typical adventure traveler at AdventureWomen® is 35-65 years old; however, these days many of our clients who are over 65 are as physically fit as younger AdventureWomen®! She’s quite satisfied with her life and successful in her current job or situation. Most of our guests are traveling solo, some for the first time. But, many also enjoy sharing their adventure vacations with friends, mothers, daughters, partners, and/or sisters. The majority of women who travel with us are or have been married and have between one and three children. AdventureWomen® are confident about how they look and feel, and make an effort to stay in good physical condition. AdventureWomen® come from all over the U.S. and the world.
Why do AdventureWomen® adventure?
Time and again, our guests tell us that they like to travel with us on our adventure travel vacations so they can meet new people and challenge themselves by learning a new skill or activity. They want a vacation package that is out of the ordinary. They want to be physically active and venture out on their own, unfettered by the responsibilities of home and work.

Why do they come back?
More than 70% of our guests are repeat customers. They tell us they “feel great” about themselves—more confident, productive, and adventurous—after they get home from one of our vacations. So, they travel with us year after year to adventure in new destinations. Find out more about what our clients say about their experiences with AdventureWomen®, and hear their incredible stories.
