Wild Women Expeditions Announces Trips In 30 Countries For 2020
Expeditions has announced that it will host trips in 30 separate countries over
its 30th anniversary year in 2020.
“We’re riding high on a global tidal wave of
interest in women-only adventure travel,” said Jennifer Haddow, owner and
director. “In just a decade we’ve gone from hosting Canada-only trips to having
multi-day programs in 30 countries!”
geographic expansion also means that Wild
Women Expeditions can spread its
mission of empowering women worldwide. The company employs only women to assist
its programs, in the office and in the field. It is Haddow’s hope and the
company’s mission to empower not only women guests but also local female guides
“We want women guides in 30 diverse countries to
reap the rewards of being part of the adventure travel industry, as all our
Wild Women tour leaders are local women. We are raising the bar for women to be
employed as guides in areas that have long excluded them, such as in Morocco,
Bhutan and Indonesia. Our hope is that these guides will go on to become
leaders in the adventure travel arenas of their countries,” said Haddow.
