Adventures in Good Company (AGC), a leading provider of all-female adventure travel, has unveiled an exciting line-up of new trips that will inspire women seeking transformative travel experiences.
With an array of destinations and themes, these new adventures offer unparalleled opportunities for personal growth, exploration, and wellness.
AGC defines wellness through three core dimensions:
* Physical Wellness: All AGC trips incorporate daily physical exercise, providing women with opportunities to engage in activities such as hiking, yoga, cycling, kayaking, paddleboarding, canoeing, and walking.
* Social and Emotional Wellness: AGC recognises the interconnectedness of social and emotional wellness and carefully crafts itineraries centered on improving mental well-being. Their wellness trips focus on fostering social connections through intentional and authentic community building while also nurturing emotional wellness through self-care practices, resilience building, and mindfulness exercises.
* Environmental Wellness: AGC's wellness trips intentionally foster a deep connection to nature. By venturing off the beaten path and immersing participants in awe-inspiring natural locations, these trips enable women to develop a profound appreciation for the environment.
Each wellness trip offered by AGC emphasises a particular dimension of wellness while encompassing all three components.
What sets AGC's wellness trips apart from their regular adventures is their attention to detail in key areas:
* Lodging: AGC ensures that the accommodations on wellness trips are unique and representative of the surrounding area, whether it's a cozy cabin nestled in the forest at Lake Tahoe, an oceanfront eco-lodge in the Panamanian jungle, or a historic inn amidst the Redwoods, the lodging choices immerse participants in the essence of the destination.
* Food: AGC's wellness trips feature refined dining experiences with a focus on local, healthy, and often plant-forward menus. Fresh fruits and vegetables, farm-to-table or jungle-to-table cuisine, and wholesome beverages are thoughtfully incorporated to nourish participants during their journeys.
* Guides: AGC's wellness trips are led by knowledgeable guides who possess expertise in the specific wellness focus of the trip: from yoga, meditation, writing, forest bathing, and more.
* Rest and Peace: While AGC's regular trips may be characterised by fast-paced itineraries or intense physical activities, wellness trips take a different approach. On these specialty trips, AGC intentionally slows down the pace, allowing participants to stay at the same lodging throughout the trip and incorporating more downtime and rest. This ensures that travelers return from their journey feeling rejuvenated and refreshed, without the need for a vacation after their vacation.
AGC strongly believes that wellness is accessible to everyone and aims to help women build lifelong habits that will help them thrive beyond their retreat experience. Their wellness trips offer inclusive experiences that cater to various fitness levels and interests, ensuring that participants can embark on a transformative journey tailored to their needs, the company says.
