Desperately Seeking Adventure provides adventure travel specifically for women. From trekking in the Moroccan Atlas, walking in the Lake District to Walking, Yoga and Meditation breaks in Tuscany there’s something for everyone.

Helen says ‘doing something new or challenging can often be nerve racking, but we still want to do it because the rewards can be enormous. Through taking part in an adventure with a group of like-minded women not only do you get the support within the group, but also meet new people with different stories to tell and life experiences to share, and a little bit of laughter on the way…
