Why Traditions Make Our Women’s Hiking Holidays Unforgettable


If you’ve ever joined one of our multi-day hiking adventures, you know we’re about way more than just hitting the trails. Sure, we love the thrill of the climb and the peace of walking in the outdoors, but what truly makes our adventures special are the little traditions we’ve sprinkled throughout the journey.

The First Photo Op: Say Cheese!

Let’s start with that first group photo at the departures gate. You know the one—the pic where everyone’s both excited and a little nervous? It’s like the first day of school but way cooler because, hello, hiking! This snapshot is more than just a fun memento. It’s us saying, “We’re in this together, come what may.


The Boots Pic: We Did It!

Fast forward to the end of our journey, and it’s time for the iconic boots photo. Trust us, by this point, those boots have stories to tell. They’ve seen mud, rocks, and maybe even a creek or two. That photo is a high-five to ourselves, a way to say, “Look how far we’ve come—literally!” It’s our collective badge of honour.

Dinner & Awards: Cheers to Us!

And then there’s the Celebration Dinner and Traditional Awards Evening —our absolute fave! Imagine it as the most uplifting ladies’ night out but with way better stories to share. A highlight of the event is the awards, which are personalised to the individuals on that adventure. They’re a heartfelt “thank you” for being an awesome part of the group.

More Than Just Trails: Your Adventure Awaits!

But wait, there’s more! When you book one of our multi-day adventures, you’re not just signing up for a hike; you’re enrolling in an experience. Concerned about your fitness? We’ve got you covered with a personalised training plan that you receive four months before departure. Want to get to know your fellow hikers? We have online group meetings and a private Facebook Group where you can start building those friendships early. It’s all part of making sure you’re not just ready for the adventure, but that you’re also set to make some lifelong friends along the way.

So what are you waiting for? Come and join us. Strap on those hiking boots and get ready for an adventure that is as much about the laughs and late-night convos as it is about the hiking.
