Wild Women Expeditions, a global leader in adventure travel, has taken the top spot in the 2023 USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Adventure Tour Operator.
In a fiercely competitive field with some of the world’s largest adventure travel brands, Wild Women Expeditions held the number one spot early on and emerged as the go-to choice yet again (it also placed first in this category in 2021) for women seeking unique and transformative adventure experiences. By combining a focus on empowerment, community building, and sustainable travel, the company has created an exceptional and very successful niche within the adventure travel sector.
“We are thrilled and deeply honoured to receive this award from USA Today’s readers,” says Jennifer Haddow, Wild Women Expeditions’ owner and CEO. “As one of just a few, but also one of the largest, women-owned adventure travel companies, we stand proudly on the quality of our tours, where we help empower women, protect wildlife, and celebrate the diversity of cultures and landscapes we explore on our trips around the world.”
Founded more than 30 years ago on the belief that every woman deserves the opportunity to unleash her wild spirit, Wild Women Expeditions has been breaking barriers and shattering stereotypes since its inception, opening doors for countless women to explore the world and discover their inner strength in a safe and supportive environment.
“We are extremely grateful for our amazing community of Wild Women, and while we truly appreciate these accolades, this type of recognition contributes to something much bigger within our industry, where it is simply not as common to see women in leadership roles,” continues Haddow. “Advocating for more opportunities for women as business owners, guides, and leaders around the world remains a priority for us and this list of award winners is a great example of the extraordinary impact women have on the adventure travel landscape.”
Connecting women of all ages, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and identities, Wild Women Expeditions’ nature-based getaways explore the world, with a year-round program of over 50 unique itineraries. This includes transformative journeys in Morocco, Thailand, Peru (including the very popular Inca Trail Trek), and the Polar regions, where Wild Women Expeditions offers a series of small ship itineraries in the Arctic and Antarctica, bucket list adventures that are among the company’s best sellers and where it is poised to become one of the largest women-only brands selling Polar tours.
“As we continue to grow and evolve as a company, we are always looking to develop new and exciting itineraries for the Wild Women community,” says Haddow. “For 2024 we are adding a trip in Japan, which we will share details on very soon, and we are extremely pleased at our growth in the Arctic and Antarctica, where we are positioning ourselves as the leader for women-only Polar travel.”
