Women's adventure trips in the Western U.S.

From timeless desert landscapes to majestic mountains, the Western U.S. offers countless opportunities for active vacations. And while the natural history is often what first draws us, learning about the cultures that predated the European invasion is fascinating. Whether you want to explore the varied National Parks of Utah or the high mountains of the North Cascades, hike the red rock canyons or learn about the Anasazi culture of the Four Corners area, our adventure trips will give you a whole different perspective on the West. Be sure to also look at trips listed under National Parks.

Llama Trekking in Utah - FULL
April 15, 2018 – April 21, 2018

Immerse yourself in the wilderness of the incomparable Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in southern Utah. Known for its sculpted slickrock, narrow canyons, and hidden oases, we have been awestruck by its beauty while driving through it on our Utah trips for the past 10 years. This year we're going to explore it! We'll go off-trail into remote wilderness, over slickrock, across streams, and through canyons, accompanied by our team of llamas who do all the heavy lifting. $2350 Rating: 1 2 [3] 4 5

Sedona and the Grand Canyon - FULL
April 22, 2018 – April 29, 2018

Arizona's canyon country is justly famous. From the cliff side dwellings of an ancient pueblo people, to the colorful chasm known as the Grand Canyon, to the red rocks of Sedona, it is a never ending feast for the eyes. The best way to see it is on foot, and we'll combine lots of hiking with time to relax and absorb the beauty of the area as we explore these three very different areas. If you have been wanting a more intimate view of the area than most people ever get, please join us for seven days of hiking, eating, relaxing, and laughing.  $2695 Rating:   1   2   [3]   4   5.
