Intrepid Travel has developed women-only expeditions in Morocco, Iran and Jordan, encouraging female empowerment and showcasing the traditions and routines of local women in each destination.
The limited-edition tours are available to book now (as of March 8), recognized globally as International Women’s Day.
The itineraries, each guided by female tour leaders, will break the barriers of traditional tourism in these locales, offering a deeper understanding of female culture in each Middle Eastern nation.
The trips will expose female travellers to local women – young, old, religious, conservative, rural, modern and liberal – while respecting traditional cultural values.
“With all the hallmarks of a classic Intrepid Travel adventure – local leadership, local transport, real life experiences – and an added focus on female travel and female empowerment, this new line of Women’s Expeditions offers a unique opportunity for female travellers from around the world to connect with each other and learn more about Middle Eastern women and their day-to-day lives,” said Jenny Gray, regional product manager for the Middle East and Africa. “While Intrepid Travel believes in inclusiveness at all levels of our company, these female-led, women-only expeditions offer a socially responsible and culturally sensitive way for travellers to access female-only establishments, experiences and customs in these traditionally conservative countries.”
The Women’s Expeditions include: Morocco – Women’s Expedition; Jordan – Women’s Expedition; and Iran – Women’s Expedition.
