At Wild Terrains, we believe that cultivating meaningful connections among women is transformative. Seeing the world through other women’s eyes makes us wiser. It opens us up. When we explore, eat, learn, laugh and authentically share ourselves with each other — we amplify one another. – Lauren Bates, CEO, Wild Terrains

Our Story

Years ago, I had a realization: all my fondest experiences were anchored by fascinating women. From living with an artist in Buenos Aires (she’s now one of our Argentina partners!), to gathering friends for wine nights in my tiny Washington DC apartment, I found so much joy in women coming together for deep conversations.

My realization led me on a search for a travel company that focused on just that: one that connected women of all ages and backgrounds on both sides of the exchange (travelers and locals). To my surprise, it didn’t exist!

That’s when the idea for Wild Terrains hit me:

  • What if there was a travel company designed to bring women together?
  • One that celebrated local women hoteliers, chefs, designers, artists…?
  • One that made every traveler feel surrounded by a close group of friends?
  • One that chose connection as its secret ingredient?

And, so, Wild Terrains was born.

Our Commitment to Women-Owned Business

Our experiences are as much about the women who partner with us as they are about the women who travel with us. Every hotel, restaurant, gallery, class, studio, and boutique we visit is owned and operated by kickass women. At Wild Terrains, your tourism dollars go directly into the pockets of local, talented women 100% of the time.

Where We Go

We currently operate group trips in Argentina, France, Iceland, Portugal and Mexico. Our small group tours–of up to 12 women per trip–bring together women of all ages and all life stages. Keeping groups small helps us deliver on our promise to build connections between travelers and locals in every destination.

What You Can Expect

Exquisite hotels. Peek culinary experiences. Moments of surprise and delight. Intimate gatherings away from the crowds. A rich variety of experiences for curious women living dynamic lives. A perfect balance of exceptional activity curation and free time to explore.

Join Us!

We’re here for all women, who shy away from cookie-cutter tours, and are looking for something truly transformational. They don’t want to be treated like tourists. They want to be treated like a friend. They want to be inspired and energized by the company of other women and meaningful human connections.
