Active tour operator Backroads, has announced eight new Walking & Hiking Trips in its Women’s Adventures collection for 2025.

The new trips, which cater to girlfriend getaways, mother/daughter vacations and female solo travelers, will feature destinations such as Sicily and the Aeolian Islands, Ireland, Yosemite Valley and more, along with an Active Culinary Trip in Tuscany.

“We knew our Women’s Adventures would resonate with women of all ages and stages of life, whether they were looking for traveling companions of the same gender or simply wanting to escape with good friends and experience a new or favorite destination,” said Tom Hale, founder, president and CEO of Backroads.

Backroads Women’s Adventures, which was first launched in August 2023, offer multiple daily route options, opportunities for relaxation and pampering and stays at hotels. The response to these initial 26 itineraries exceeded expectations, prompting the addition of more dates and destinations, according to a press release from the company.

The new trips announced for 2025 include the Blue Ridge & Great Smoky Mountains, California’s Yosemite Valley, Czech Republic & Austria, French Pyrenees to Basque Country, Ireland, Maine, Sicily & the Aeolian Islands, and Tuscany Active Culinary.

“This collection was inspired by my wife, Liz, and my daughter Avery, who recently became a mom herself. It’s no coincidence that the announcement of these new trips comes right before Mother’s Day. The list includes a few of their favorite destinations,” Hale added.

With the increasing popularity of Women’s Adventures, Backroads plans to announce even more new trips in 2025 to meet the strong demand.

Backroads, founded in 1979, has been leading active and adventure travel for 45 years, offering biking, hiking, multi-adventure tours, private trips and more in destinations across the globe.
