Utah National Parks Road Trip + Hiking

Needs a location

OVERVIEW

Get that epic sing-along mix tape ready! It’s here: Your 8-day ultimate Utah National Parks Road Trip! Ramble across southwest Utah on our women’s group hiking tour to some of Utah’s most popular national parks and beyond.

This isn’t that painful family road trip when Dad only allowed one pee break per state line. No way, Explorer Chick. Climb on into our Explorer Chick SHE-nanigan Shuttle with a gaggle of your newest girlfriends. Singalongs and snacks are strongly encouraged before lacing up dirty boots to hike the dusty trails of four of Utah’s national parks.

GUIDED HIKING IN UTAH’S NATIONAL PARKS
Rise to the challenge of a new trail, before a new horizon, with new friends who encourage your magic. Wander in disbelief as you hike above and below the giants in Zion Canyon. Siren your soul among the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon. Marvel the muscle of water cutting through the Arches. Hike up your big girl Lycra as you clamber through corkscrew slot canyons and descend layers of red, pink, brown, and white sandstone.

Along the way, you’ll be led by some of the best female guides in the business. They’ll be with you every step, ensuring your trip is seamless and unforgettable. Explorer Chick prides itself in curating trips for women who live an active, healthy lifestyle. We tackle the big climbs, the long trails, the bucket lists, and the uncomfortable — and your guides and Explorer Chick sisters will be there supporting you the whole way.

ACCOMMODATIONS AND MEALS INCLUDED
No tent camping this trip. Kick off your dusty hiking boots, howl at bad jokes, and settle into our shared digs (dreamy glamping and yurts, anyone?). We’ll feed your gremlin belly with a mix of fresh-made meals and dining out – including an insane lunchtime stop along the White Rim of the Colorado River in Canyonlands.

Start your fem-gines for this epic Utah National Parks Road Trip. It’s gonna be an unforgettable ride.

Smoky Mountains Hiking and Glamping Adventure

Needs a location

Hike through sweet smelling pine forests to sweeping panoramic vistas on our 4 day Women Only, Small Group Hiking and Glamping Adventure Tour in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

This hiking tour has been carefully curated and “in the field” tested to include some of our favorite hikes in the Smoky Mountains.

On two of your hikes, you’ll walk in the foot path of thousands of Appalachian Trail thru hikers that have come before you.

Of course, what’s a trip to Tennessee without whiskey? You’ll spend a few hours on an exclusive, private tour with our local guide visiting distilleries on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail. You’ll get to go behind the scenes at a real working still house and see how everything is made start to finish. You’ll learn the history of whisky including the Prohibition era, the state’s history with whiskey, and why these mountains were such an integral part of moonshine culture.

Our nights will be spent at our adorable Glamping site located conveniently minutes from Gatlinburg. Each tent has been tastefully decorated and is totally Pinterest worthy! Your digs are outfitted with everything you need to camp comfortably including Wifi and temperature control. Your meals will be freshly prepared at camp by your Explorer Chick guides giving you the only task of relaxing daily after every hike!

OVERVIEW

Join us for several unforgettable Moab hikes in the deserts of Southern Utah over one long weekend! Spend four days trekking the best hiking trails in Canyonlands and Arches National Parks by day. At night, explore the Moab area or relax in our private Explorer Chick lodgings.
Your weekend has been carefully curated and “in the field” tested by your Explorer Chick team! We’ve spent YEARS playing in this outdoor mecca in the desert. You’ll squeeze in some serious ground over the course of a long weekend working on those hiker booty gains. Most of the ground you’ll cover doesn’t even show up on Moab, Utah hiking blogs.

MOAB HIKES HIGHLIGHTS

ARCHES NATIONAL PARK
Explore six arches in one hiking trail to discover the namesake of Arches National Park. Witness the power of wind as you trek among iconic red rock formations where over 2,000 arches have been documented. Descend down layers of red, pink, brown, and white sandstone to enjoy a well-earned lunch on the White Rim of the Colorado River.
CANYONLANDS NATIONAL PARK: NEEDLES DISTRICT

SUNRISE BREAKFAST AND ISLAND IN THE SKY
Catch an unforgettable sunrise at Deadhorse Point State Park as you sip your coffee and munch on your breakfast. Next, gear up and hit the trail in Canyonlands to conquer the steepest trail in the park. (You’ve got this!)

DELICATE ARCH HIKE
You better believe we wouldn’t let you miss this! Your reward after a brief hike? One of the most famous geological structures in the world. Gaze in awe at some of Mama Nature’s best work before taking your turn to pose in the photo op sweet spot.

Every day, expect to be challenged by a new trail, and a new horizon, and new friends. Your thighs will sing every day as you walk a new hiking trail, admire a new desert horizon, and conquer a new national park!

REST AND RELAXATION IN THE MOAB AREA
Your heart will swoon every night as you kick off your dusty hiking boots, share bad jokes, and enjoy fresh-made meals in the Explorer Chick lodge. We’ll enjoy the occasional meal out and even squeeze in some time for you to meander and shop in the funky town of Moab. Your weekend of epic Moab hikes begins with an easy rendezvous at a Salt Lake City airport hotel—we take care of all the transportation from there!
(Phew, did we mention this is all going down in four days?!)

Women’s Las Vegas Vacation Weekend Adventure

Needs a location

This isn’t your typical girls-only Las Vegas weekend trip! After a few nights on the Vegas strip, enjoy rock climbing, kayaking and overnight camping in Black Canyon. Experience both the glamour and true grit of Las Vegas, Nevada in its surrounding desert landscape with other adventurous women.

Be sure to pack your sequins and a sports bra to experience Las Vegas, Explorer Chick style! From a 4-star hotel to a billion-star sky, experience the full scope of glam and grit in WILD Las Vegas.

DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS
Your vacation begins at a high-end Downtown Las Vegas Hotel and Casino where you’ll enjoy all the food, drink, chip-tossing, and people-watching Fremont Street has to offer.

CANYON ROCK CLIMBING
We’ll build in time to escape the crowds to spend a full day rock climbing and exploring the vertical sandstone walls of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

RIVER KAYAKING
On day three, we’ll dry bag our belongings (peace out, heels ✌) as we prepare for an overnight kayak adventure. Your 12-mile paddling journey launches at the base of Hoover Dam through the Black Canyon on the Lower Colorado River. That’s right: We’ll gain special access to launch kayaks below the towering Hoover Damn. Talk about feeling small!

OVERNIGHT CAMPING
The water will be moving and flat; a peaceful pace for anyone who might have overindulged the night prior and perfect for a relaxing trip. Along the way, we’ll make frequent stops to areas accessible only by boat—natural hot springs, slot canyons, a natural sauna, Emerald Cave with gorgeous green water, historical sites, even ruins! We’ll spend our final night resting up camped out on the shore, snort-laughing under the stars.

This adventure is for women who love to experience multiple adventures, don’t mind trading their bed for a warm sleeping bag, and who can trade room service for rock climbing without a second thought. This Vegas Vacation is the best of both worlds: city life and outdoor adventure!

Adventure Highlights
• Experience the neon lights and glam of old Las Vegas while exploring the best outdoor activities in the surrounding areas!
• Get vertical learning to rock climb in Red Rock Canyon with the intensity level as high or low as you’d like.
• Be one of the few getting an up close and personal look at Hoover Dam when as you launch your kayak at it’s base.
• Explore the Lower Colorado River by spending 2 days pack-kayaking through Black Canyon stopping for natural hot springs, hiking, Emerald Cave, historical ruins, slot canyons and more.
• Enjoy a 4 Star Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas right on Fremont Street with a variety of restaurants, luxurious pools, casinos, attractions, and even more just steps outside.
• Spend one night backcountry camping in the heart of Black Canyon along the Colorado River
• Relax with a comprehensive itinerary that makes the logistics, transportation, navigation, meal planning, lodging, and everything between easy.
• Geek out with supportive and encouraging Explorer Chicks on a private, women-only, small group adventure
