Senior Women’s Many Options

There are more and more travel firms that are now catering to women who are considered to be “seniors.”  That can mean anything from over 50 to over 65 years of age. As more senior women choose to travel either alone or in a group with other women, options are becoming more and more available.

Rio Grande Travel is a good example. They advertise…”Why travel alone when you can connect with like-minded women on a trip led by knowledgeable, local guides? Whether you want to join a pre-planned trip alone, are interested in a travel group for senior women or would like to embark on a journey with a bunch of your friends, you can have a good time on a trip tailored to your interests!”

Eldertreks, Walking the World, 50Plus Expeditions, Senior Women’s Travel Tours and Smithsonian Journeys are fine examples of travel organizations that provide senior women a wonderful opportunity to find travel fun and safe. Adventurous Wench features Cool Trips for Women. Women-Only Trips fits the need for many seniors who prefer to travel with other active senior women.

Some travel organizations do not specifically note that they cater only to seniors but they do ONLY women travel.  Women Traveling for example, means ‘no men’, ladies. Their trips seem perfect for women who prefer to travel in escorted small groups. You may wish to pair up with a senior meet-up group that has many offerings. Transitions Abroad also fulfills a need for women to enjoy tours with other women.

Best Senior Travel Websites

So take your pick here that includes advice from Frommer’s, Journey Woman, Smarter Living’s Senior Travel and several others.  Wired Seniors has a link called a Seniors Travel Guide with suggestions and advice. Travel Directories provides senior women with dozens of options to consider.  Journey Woman  has a section entitled “The largest collection of women-centered travel classifieds on the internet.”

I’lll depart today with Solo Travel Portal and their Over 50 Travel URL.  No, just one more. The National Association of Dynamic Senior Women has to fit in here somewhere. The association is an online membership community of like-minded women over 55 who choose to focus on living longer by living younger.

Whether working or retired, 55-plus community members remain joyful, active, and involved in all aspects of life. Members lead exciting and fulfilling lives, travel frequently, and, at all times, want to look and feel their best. So, isn’t it time to finally indulge in your lifelong travel dreams? Maybe be like Mary Jo who is a pied piper for 55+ year old women who refuse to give up on life just because of their age. She invites you to join her on these uniquely creative small group cultural discoveries. jeb

  1. I am surprised that you didn’t mention a tripod. I am taking my compact Manfrotto with me to Disney in a few weeks. It’s small enough to fit in my suitcase and I would need one to do night photography.

    I work for a website called Thelma & Louise Club, which helps to connect like-minded adventurous women travellers – thought you might find it a useful resource too.
