Explorer Chick Adventure Co., The Perfect Reason to Get Outside and Play


Moab Dirtbag Adventure, 2017

I am simply downright proud to be a guide at Explorer Chick. I could talk until my face was blue and you are drooling about the memories I have guiding complete strangers on incredible journeys. There is an amazing energy when you get a small group of women together, all strangers in the beginning, to embark on a crazy adventure encouraging each other.

Strangers to Friendships 

When you travel with Explorer Chick, you don’t just return home from a week in paradise. You return home with hundreds of inside jokes that make your abs hurt from laughing, memories of incredible landscapes, new experiences that maybe you didn’t think you could do and lifelong friendships with likeminded women.

Our motto at Explorer Chick is simple, GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY.

We do just that with women of all ages and backgrounds bringing together an empowering clan to HAVE FUN!

The 2018 line-up for adventure is incredible. Some of our trips are already sold out so you can be sure that all trips WILL sell out! When you travel with Explorer Chick, all details are carefully curated by “boots on the ground” so you will find no other adventure like it.

    1. Wow, 7 sisters must have been so much fun growing up with! I’m lucky enough to have a job where I meet strangers and they become like sisters at the end of the week 🙂 I grew up with an amazing brother, borrowing clothes wasn’t near as much fun as I imagine having a sister would be…
