Backroads has launched Women’s Adventures, a new offer exclusively for women travelers. Since 1979 when Backroads was founded by Tom Hale, more than 50% of its executive team and leader population have been women. The launch of Backroads Women’s Adventures, inspired by his wife Liz and daughter Avery, is a highly anticipated addition that celebrates this commitment, as well as the unique camaraderie and chemistry of all-women groups.

Set in some of the world’s most beautiful places, these new vacations feature 26 of Backroads’ most popular Walking & Hiking itineraries in bucket-list destinations, both far flung and backyard favorites, from Arizona, Yosemite and Yellowstone to England, Peru and Bhutan. While the all-women trips will naturally have a different dynamic than other Backroads’ trips, they will offer the same commitment to excellence, flexible itineraries and exceptional Trip Leaders for which Backroads is known.

Women seeking outdoor and cultural travel experiences in combination with stylish creature comforts—whether traveling solo or with female friends or family members—has been a growing trend over the years. Backroads has seen an increase in select travel dates becoming all-women trips, often as Private Trips. 

Backroads Walking & Hiking tours are crafted to offer travelers an unfiltered and genuine connection to the culture, landscapes, people and natural beauty of the region they are exploring. With over 30 years of experience designing and leading Walking & Hiking trips across the globe, launching Women’s Adventures that feature some of the company’s top hiking itineraries is an exciting evolution of the Backroads trip collection.

Backroads’ new Women’s Adventures are all available for immediate booking. For the complete collection of Backroads Women’s Adventures and for more information, visit or call 800-462-2848.
