Austin Adventures Invites Woman Only on Three Multisport Vacations in 2020

December 5, 2019

Adventures Include a Mother-Daughter Hiking Trip in Utah Hosted by Carol and Kasey Austin



BILLINGS, MT, December 4, 2019 – The active tour company that pioneered multisport and family adventure travel announces continued women-only offerings and one special mother-daughter departure hosted by Carol and Kasey Austin. These trips are not only for women, they are also built by women and hosted by women.

Steering this effort is Austin Adventures’ own second generation of family leadership, Kasey Austin, newly promoted President and the daughter of Dan Austin, Founder and CEO. Under Kasey’s direction and influence the company now boasts a professional team of tour guides that numbers in excess of 60 percent women.

“These leaders are superwomen with adventurous souls and the power to inspire” states Kasey Austin. “I think by trip’s end, you just might want to pack them up in your suitcase and take them home with you!”

Kasey is the inspiration behind the 2020 addition of women-only trips to Austin Adventures’ ever-expanding, trail-blazing vacation portfolio. Having female guides who do it all — serve as naturalists, drivers, companions, mechanics, chefs, storytellers, logistical gurus, and confidantes — is one of the key ways Austin Adventures motivates the women who join them for these unique trips to tap into their own strength and courage.

Not wanting to be left out, Carol Austin, a 20-year veteran on the sales team, requested a special Mother-Daughter adventure to address frequent requests and queries.  “Kasey and I have traveled the world together for decades and when I share these ‘special’ adventures with our guests, they ask to join us the next time we go. I felt it was time to make this special trip available to our travelers.”

This will be the company’s 3rd year offering women-only trips, with three new destinations sure to enable ladies to “get their adventure on” with other strong, inspiring women who like to travel, explore, and see the world.

“We want to get away from the idea that vacations for women should be spent at the spa,” Kasey explains. “The idea behind these trips is that we want to challenge our ladies by day and treat them like queens with a hot shower, a delicious meal, and of course, a glass of wine (or two), by night.”

New for 2020 will be three distinct itineraries:
