Insight Vacations, the worldwide leader in premium guided journeys, is thrilled to launch a new 13-day itinerary, Venice & The Croatian Coast, 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 Summer 2022 and will offer enriching travel experiences that cater to the diverse interests of female travellers and introduce guests to inspiring women in communities across Croatia.
The first women’s-only trip, Inspirational India, was launched last year and is set to depart in October 2021, which has booking availability. The Croatia journey includes three new #MakeTravelMatter Experiences designed to uplift local women in their communities and ensure Insight’s travels are used as a force for good while supporting the United Nations’ Global Goals.
The company is celebrating women’s achievements by creating an inclusive world through experiences that connect guests with women artisans, entrepreneurs, business and community leaders, and by hiring women Travel Directors, Local Experts and Experience Hosts. Also, TreadRight’s ‘Planet’ Ambassador and environmentalist, Céline Cousteau will be a special guest on the Croatia trip. She helps amplify women’s achievements as a documentary filmmaker and director.
“We are celebrating women’s successes with local female trailblazers, artisans and community leaders whom we visit and support across the globe,” says Ulla Hefel Böhler, Global CEO for Insight Vacations. “Our newest Wander Women Croatia journey will highlight our meaningful #MakeTravelMatter Experiences where like-minded female guests can personally connect with outstanding local women,” she concluded.
This special women’s-only guided tour is available with limited space as a single departure date, so guests are encouraged to book early to secure their spot.
