From camaraderie and good conversation to being encouraged to step out of your comfort zone in a supportive space, there are plenty of good reasons to say yes to an all women trip. Not to mention the pure amount of uninhibited fun you’ll have.
OARS women adventures, which are offered on some of the most iconic whitewater rivers in the West, are a unique opportunity for our female guests of all ages to meet and connect with other like-minded travelers who share an enthusiasm for outdoor adventure and the natural world.
“It’s incredibly empowering to share time in the outdoors with people who come from a diverse range of backgrounds, yet can intimately relate to what it is like to experience the world, the outdoors, or even a few days on the river, as a woman.” ~Jill Sanford
For those particularly focused on health, wellness and personal growth, we also offer a women’s wellbeing retreat that combines whitewater rafting and wilderness immersion with yoga and mindfulness teachings. Led by certified yoga professionals, this wildly popular all women adventure also explores other self care practices throughout the trip like guided meditation, journal prompts, mobility movement, and a variety of massage therapy techniques.
“Positive and flexible environment! The guides and yoga teachers cultivated an environment where everyone felt comfortable, heard, happy, and secure, while still pushing comfort levels and boundaries. I have been lucky enough to have a lot of amazing adventures in my life, and I can honestly say this was one of the very best. Thank you to the entire team for the incredible week and lasting experience that I’ll carry with me. “ -Hadley Kornacki
Whether you grab your closest friends or go solo, our all women river trips are special experiences that are sure to stick with you well after you’ve returned.
