USA Adventure Tours and Hiking Trips for Women

Grab the Louise to your Thelma and hit the road to explore your very own backyard: The United States. That’s right, we’re talking adventure trips USA-style. Skip the plane for a road trip to kick off your next big adventure or fly to one of America’s national parks where we have some epic outdoor adventure plans lined up for you.

We’re talking sea kayaking with legit glaciers in Alaska, rock climbing near Las Vegas, losing our 💩 over the incredible views in Grand Canyon National Park, and howling with the wolves in Yellowstone National Park. Basically – we’ve got the goods, baby!

Look, we don’t care if your passion is car dancing to Madonna’s greatest hits or keeping the punch buggy tradition alive-just hop in your car and come play with us!

Everything about the Moab weekend was amazing – the company, the food prepared by the guides, the hiking (challenging but rewarding), and the condo (cozy and fully stocked).

I didn’t want to go back home! And I want to bring more friends on more Explorer Chick trips! I miss the crew already!

I did this trip with a few of my friends and it was awesome. The trip was well organized and the guides Cassie and Erin are the BEST. Definitely train for this trip as it can be challenging but so worth it. The views were breathtaking and the glamping grounds inviting.

WOW! A simply amazing adventure to the Red River Gorge last weekend. Lauren is a fantastic guide with extensive knowledge of backpacking and the Gorge. I met eight ladies, from various states, who quickly became adventure buddies. The weekend was filled with hiking, talking, laughing, and of course more hiking.

My only wish….it would last longer. Definitely a recommended adventure.
