10 Wild Destinations For An Adventurous Girl’s Trip 

At Travel Modern, we’re a woman-owned travel agency and we love seeing women get out in the world together! A girl’s trip is always full of fun stories to tell years down the road. We think it’s one of the best ways to encourage sisterhood and remind ourselves that we’re capable of having fun and experiencing new things throughout our entire lives. If the following list doesn’t strike your fancy, let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll find the best options out there.

1. Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Wyoming is a treasure trove of adventure. Yellowstone National Park should be on everyone’s bucket list, but if you’ve already been and are looking for something different, Wyoming still has a lot to offer. One cool event is watching the massive herds of elk at the National Elk Refuge! Jackson has a lot of great restaurants so leave time for indulging in your schedule. If you’re up for it, take a backpacking trip in Grand Teton National Park or hop on a whitewater rafting trip down Snake River.

2. Costa Rica

This is what you’re going to do in Costa Rica. Set up basecamp in the small town of La Fortuna and explore the Arenal Volcano National Park. This Park is home to a 5,350-foot volcano within a thriving forest. A must-do is exploring the forest from the treetops at Mistico Arenal Hanging Bridges Park. There are these really cool bridges strung through the treetops so you can see so much more of the forest from up there. Once you’re done for the day, slide into the natural hot springs and soak your sore muscles so they’re ready for the next day of adventuring!

 3. Sedona, Arizona

Sedona is perfect for a girls’ trip, offering stunning natural beauty and exciting adventures. Explore the famous red rock formations on hikes like Cathedral Rock or Devil’s Bridge. Experience a thrilling Pink Jeep Tour through rugged landscapes, discovering hidden canyons and amazing views. Afterward, relax in Sedona’s charming shops, art galleries, and spas nestled in the peaceful desert scenery. Enjoy local dining with sunset views at cozy cafes and restaurants. Whether hiking, jeep touring, or simply relaxing, Sedona offers an unforgettable getaway for friends seeking both fun and relaxation.

4. Sante Fe, New Mexico

Mix history and modern art with this eclectic trip! One of America’s coolest national parks is the Bandelier National Monument. You actually get to crawl into the ancient cliff dwellings that were carved hundreds of years ago by the Ancestral Pueblo people. Learn about their culture and survival as you explore where they lived. Some other highlights are visiting the town of Taos, a small artsy town where you can walk across the 650-foot-tall Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. The view is amazing and well worth battling any fear of heights. Hike in the Kit Carson National Forest, take a dip in the natural hot springs in the Taos area, and visit Meow Wolf for a delightfully artful adventure.

5. British Columbia, Canada

Depending on when you take your girl’s trip your itinerary will change, but British Columbia (especially Vancouver) has some of the most diverse opportunities for adventurous groups. In the winter you can go heli-skiing with Blackcomb Helicopters. In the Summer, you can hike, check out the beach, mountain bike, standup paddleboard and so much more. BC is a great place for outdoorsy girl groups with beautiful landscapes to enjoy.

6. Baja, Mexico

Have you ever snorkeled with sea lions? If not, then your trip to Baja is the perfect place to do it! Baja’s Isla Espiritu Santo is part of a UNESCO biosphere reserve so you and the girls can disconnect from society and reconnect with nature together. Fall asleep to the waves at night, star-gaze, kayak with the dolphins and whales, and take a moonlit stroll along the beach. This takes a beach trip to the next level and is great for a group that loves to relax and adventure equally.
