I think I may have found the perfect travel company for girls outdoors.
Lovely new tour provider Desperately Seeking Adventure have come up with a pretty genius plan: they offer an incredible selection of adventure travel tours, mini escapes and chilled weeks in the sun, all exclusively for women. Everything from Tuscan wine retreats and yoga escapes to African mountain climbing and the markets of Marrakesh are on offer, so there’s something for every kind of traveller.
The whole idea behind the tours is that each group is made up of friendly, adventurous women of all ages, so you have an instant travelling sisterhood to make friends with as you walk, trek and explore, and the company’s ethos says it all: “To have fun in a safe and supportive environment, to discover new places, try new things and meet new people, empowering women and enhancing happiness.”
Founder Helen came up with the idea for the company when she was looking for a likeminded girl adventurer to go exploring with.
“Through a friend of a friend I was fortunate enough to meet someone with the same spirit and since then we have been on many adventures. This made me realise that there must be other women out there who would love to do something different, to try something new or challenge themselves within the comfort of a group of women, and from this I developed Desperately Seeking Adventure.”
If you’ve ever felt a little bit scared to simply pack your rucksack and head for the hills, the beauty of DSA’s tours is that they take away the stress of planning logistics and the dangers of travelling alone, leaving you to simply head out and make amazing new discoveries, memories and friends. Their adventures suit all budgets too, with local mini trips to Snowdon or the Yorkshire Dales available for when you just need a little break from real life.

And don’t worry if you haven’t done anything like this before – DSA’s trips are suitable for any woman, any age, background, lifestyle and experience. All you have to have is a ‘little bit of adventure in your soul.’
