To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8), Insight Vacations is launching a new 10-day itinerary, Inspiring Iceland, A Women’s-Only Tour as part of its Wander Women series of journeys created for women, by women.
The trip will take place in July 2023 offering immersive experiences curated to the interests of female clients through unique Insight Experiences and encountering MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences.
Guests will discover Iceland’s incredible natural beauty and traditions. They will journey across the land of fire and ice from the vibrant capital of Reykjavik to the vast plains of Thingellvir, exploring black sand beaches, glacier lakes, waterfalls and floating thermal pools.
In 2022, the theme of International Women’s Day theme is #BreaktheBias which supports a gender equal world that is inclusive, diverse and equitable.
For the past 12 years, Iceland has topped the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Index for gender equality.
Forty-seven years ago, Iceland’s women went on strike and took to the streets to fight for equal rights. Five years later, Vigdis Finnbogadottir became president of Iceland and was Europe’s first female president. In addition, she was the first woman in the world to be democratically elected as a head of state. Insight Vacations introduces guests to amazing Icelandic women who are dedicated and passionate about sustaining their land and culture.
Ulla Hefel Böhler, Global CEO for Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, said that: “For over a decade, Iceland has been recognized by the World Economic Forum as the world’s leading country for gender equality and on International Women’s Day, we support this year’s #BreaktheBias theme as we continue to celebrate women’s achievements and the local women who empower the communities we visit worldwide.”
And she continued: “We are thrilled to be offering our newest Wander Women premium tour to this outstanding destination where over 80% of women make up part of the work force and our female guests will personally meet these inspiring Icelandic women who are creating equal opportunities and resources across their country.”
This special women’s-only guided tour is available with limited space and clients are encouraged to book early to secure their spot and join a diverse group of female guests from around the world. Here are some of the inspiring women guests will spend time with during their journey:
