We women know we don’t have to stay home just because we don’t have a travel companion! After all, it’s become acceptable to take a trip with other women, away from the family. We can head to the wilderness to hike, bike, camp or kayak, stay in chateaux in France or walk in the Cotswolds with a group of fun-loving women. Here are a few travel companies that arrange women-only adventure tours.
