We are two sisters new owners of WalkingWomen since August 2021. We are passionate about sharing our love of walking and having wonderful travel experiences with friends and family. Sometimes women just want to travel in the company of other women and we want to make this possible.
Why is WalkingWomen important?
Ginny’s partner died in September 2015 and she was at a loss how to holiday. WalkingWomen got her holidaying again and she wants to share this with other women.
Sara has spent the last 30 years juggling bringing up 3 children and part time work. Travel has always been important to her and she previously worked in the travel industry. Now she wants to bring holidays to women who need ‘me’ time.
Our mission …
… is to provide a safe space for women to explore and adventure together – to walk, connect and revive.
New owners since August 2021 taking over a company that was started in 2000. WalkingWomen was one of the first exclusively women only walking companies in the UK with holidays for all women and some specifically for lesbians. We are passionate to share our love of walking and having wonderful experiences with friends and family. We want to keep the spirit of WalkingWomen going. We launched our new look website in November 2021 and started holidays in February this year with a sell out Winter Revival walk to North Yorkshire. This year we will have 30 holidays as we run some of the classic WalkingWomen holidays and start some new ones. From high Alps hiking in Switzerland to more gentle walks searching for the sound of nightingales and turtledoves ‘ Sussex Songbirds’ – we have a variety of holidays to tempt guests. We specialise in small group trips and have guides who know their areas well. Overseas we work with local partners. As much as possible we work with women led businesses.
Our vision is to build the company back to it’s heyday of over 100 holidays per year.
