Women's Expeditions

Break down the cultural barriers of traditional tourism with our range of all-female adventures.

We believe travel is for everyone. But in some countries, there are things mixed-gender groups just can’t do. What if, as a female traveler in Pakistan, you could head down to a women-only salon owned by a local woman and run out of her home in a town surrounded by mountains and glaciers? Or you might prefer to learn how to make traditional Indian food at a home cooking class in Jaipur, a country where, in parts, women still rarely get the opportunity to work. Relish in powerful moments like heading out on a Morocco tour with M’Goun Valley’s first local female guide.

Our Women’s Expeditions are all about breaking down barriers, fostering discussion and creating immersive local experiences for women that are ordinarily off limits on our regular group departures. They provide local women employment through locally-led experiences, while also supporting women-owned and operated businesses in our supply chain. 

Our Women’s Expeditions

Why choose us

Small Groups

Our groups are small enough to feel like you’re exploring a destination independently but big enough to create a good social vibe. Our average group size is about 10 women, which we've found is a great number to let you connect with the locals you meet without feeling like you’re just a face in a crowd.

Local leaders

The best women to show you the heart of a destination are the ones who live there, which is why we work exclusively with local leaders. On Women's Expeditions, your female leader is not only just a travel expert, but she's also your teacher, travel guru and enthusiastic purveyor of grassroots experiences.

Real life experiences

What is travel but a search for something that can’t be Googled? We love the highlights, but the real magic for us happens well away from a beaten path. It’s the visit to a women's-only beauty salon or a home-cooked feast shared in an Indian woman's home. These are real-life experiences you won’t find in a search engine.

Safety first

As a solo female traveling the world, it's important that you feel safe and comfortable. When you travel with Intrepid, you can rest assured that your safety is our biggest priority – and having the security of a built-in group of new friends and expert local leader means you can relax and enjoy yourself.

Travel solo, together

Got an urge to see the world, but no one to do it with? We provide a ready-made, all-female group and an expert female local leader to help you make the most of your adventure. Plus, you can choose to share a room with a new friend or have your own for a small extra cost.

Sustainable travel

We strive to use travel as a force for good. That’s why we choose to give back to the communities we visit, carbon offset all our trips and take our social and environmental responsibilities seriously. We’re proud to be a certified B Corp.

We’re empowering women
