October Tours for Women

Are you hankering to see some gorgeous fall color, hike in ideal temperatures, and orchestrate some SHE-nanigans? Then one of our Explorer Chick October tours is exactly what you need!

Don’t tell the other months, but October is definitely one of our favorites! (OK, September, you can come too.) We’ve lined up some EPIC fall trips to celebrate cooler temps and all our badass ladies.

Journey into the Grand Canyon on a four day backpacking trip, soak in natural hot springs just outside Las Vegas, or snorkel with sea lions in Baja, Mexico. We don’t care if you’re a glamour and heels gal or “never touches a razor” type, let’s have some fun!

We’ve carefully curated these small group tours so you can have a killer time with other rad ladies who love hiking, laughing, and being outside just as much as you. Those painstaking hours spent planning lodging, food, and October weather preparations? Yeah we’ve got all those covered. All you have to do is show up and have a good time!

The Best Places to Visit in October

Look, there’s a reason why these are the October tours we run and that’s because they are our very favorite places to go during this month! Fall foliage? Check. Cool, autumn temperatures? Heck yeah. And jaw-dropping views without the crowds of summer visitors? Yes please! 

These are some of our favorite places to drink in the sweet October air.


Whether you’re going south to hit Zion and Bryce Canyon, hiking and exploring around Moab, or doing a tour of the entire outdoor playground state, Utah is a great place to visit in October. It’s not as hot as the 100+°F summer days, but it’s still warm enough to rock a tank top.

If you’re planning a solo October tour through Utah, come travel with us! We’ve planned the itinerary to hit all the best spots and take you on mind-blowing hikes you didn’t even know existed.

Grand Canyon

That Insta-famous Grand Canyon rim photo is just the beginning of an epic October Grand Canyon trip. The Grand Canyon can be deadly hot, but the fall offers a respite from those killer temps. Sure, our ideal Grand Canyon tour isn’t complete without a little hard work and boob sweat, but that’s all part of the fun!

Smoky Mountains

This is where you’ll really get to experience fall foliage to the max. With cooler temperatures ideal for hiking, camping, and whiskey tasting, the Smoky Mountains is definitely a favorite October spot. The colors start changing around early October, but really get going mid and late October to get those vibrant oranges, yellows, and reds.

Pro tip: after you go on our mega-fun guided tour, check out the Smoky Mountain Harvest Festival and Ober Gatlinburg’s Oktoberfest with your new besties from the trip.

North America is cool and everything, but sometimes, you just want to get a little further from home with your fall travel tour. We’re all for it!

If that’s what you’re after, Jordan is a prime October tour option. It’s warm, but not scalding and has more adventure opportunities than you can shake a stick at.

With camel rides, towering canyons, desert stars, and the UNESCO World Heritages site, Petra, Jordan is an amazing place to explore in late September and October.
