Wilderness Scotland has just launched their new range of guided women-only departures for 2019. From sea kayaking among the Summer Isles to hiking the West Highland Way, the trips have all the hallmarks of a Wilderness Scotland holiday – expert guiding, characterful accommodation, and inspirational itineraries – but are designed to encourage more women to enjoy the outdoors alongside like-minded female adventurers.
Breaking down barriers
For a travel company where 55 per cent of positions are held by women, introducing trips with the intention of empowering and connecting female outdoor adventurers was a natural next step.
“Of course, women have always been active in the outdoors but in the past, it’s been hard to be heard in a culture that can sometimes feel quite male-dominated,” says Rachael Gavan, Wilderness Scotland’s program manager. “We are delighted to be offering a range of awesome female-only departures this year.”
There are currently nine different trips to choose from.
