We are thrilled to announce one international and two domestic itineraries designed by women, led by women, and for women, only for 2020.
Kasey Austin, President of Austin Adventures and daughter of Dan Austin, Founder, and CEO, is the inspiration behind the 2020 addition of women-only trips to Austin Adventures’ ever-expanding, trailblazing vacation portfolio. Having women 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 to tap into their own strength and courage.
After two years of successful women-only trips, Kasey is adding three new destinations this year, sure to enable ladies to “get their adventure on” with other strong, inspiring women who like to travel and explore 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, delicious meal and, of course, a glass of wine (or two), by night.”
New for 2020 will be three distinct itineraries:
