All-Inclusive Camping & Hiking Adventures

Empowering and Connecting Women Through Nature


Take a deep breath…

The smell of fresh earth and campfire permeate your senses as you sit back and absorb your beautiful surroundings. You haven’t felt this relaxed in awhile — it’s as though all that tension has simply just melted away. You sit with a circle of women laughing, crying, and sharing your stories and experiences. You spent the day walking in the woods, lazing in a hammock, and learning about the outdoors and camping. Your cup is full. This trip is exactly what you needed. You feel empowered, lifted up, and completely at peace.

The Wander Women experience is designed to be restorative. We are a female-run business, and we are well aware of the demands on women’s lives that can take a toll on our emotional and physical well-being. It’s not always easy to get away, so we want to assure that you leave a trip feeling renewed and refreshed.

Wander Women provides women with the opportunity to escape the daily grind and find a deep connection with nature through our all-inclusive camping and hiking adventures throughout Iowa.


Participants will learn the basic skills and knowledge they need to become badass outdoorswomen, and develop the confidence to take outdoor adventures and journeys outside of Wander Women trips. Our adventures empower women with the skills and experience to hike, camp, and do other outdoor activities, all while connecting with other women and nature.

Our all-inclusive camping adventures provide you with everything you need so you don’t have to worry about anything besides showing up, relaxing and having fun. Our all-inclusive packages include:

  • Essential camping gear: tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and camping chairs

  • Delicious and healthy meals cooked for you, including snacks, indulgent desserts, and drinks

  • Guided adventures

  • Guided, hands-on outdoor skills instruction and facilitation from our experienced guides

  • Park admission and campsite fees

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature—the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
