Women's Adventure Travels, Intern
Women's Adventure Travels mission is to celebrate women and to inspire them to empower themselves and those around them through travel. This boutique travel company specializes in small, well-curated and customized trips for women. All WAT trips have an empowering and fierce feminine thread throughout, supporting women-owned businesses and celebrating women of influence and distinction in each market, be it a hotelier, a chef, an artisan, a conservationist or a village woman defying the local or global odds. Aside from the inherent adventure at hand and the empowerment in the air, storytelling and community are two other threads meticulously woven into each trip.
Set in stunning landscapes, on all WAT trips you will find yourself surrounded by spirited, like-minded women. WAT trips provide a mad mix of outdoor and adventure activity at various levels, to suit you, along with stays in top spots around the world that showcase an authentic ambiance, exceptional local artisans, art and architecture, as well as local food, beverages and an element of wellness throughout.
WAT's seven scheduled trips to Alaska, Antarctica, Chile, Peru, Galapagos, Botswana, and Zambia are merely the kick off of what is yet to come with WAT as there are three more trips to Kenya, South Africa, and Argentina well in the wings and several more in development. There will also be a series of live events happening at home in various cities in the US and on the road in tandem with WAT trips. Stay tuned on the Women's Adventure Travel's site (www.womensadventuretravels.com) for all of WAT's updates.
