Wild Terrains Launches New Women-Only Trips to Portugal This Fall

Women-only travel is the fastest growing segment in the travel industry today. Whether they’re traveling with friends, families, partners or by themselves, women are a driving force behind an industry fueling the economy on a global scale. According to The George Washington School of Business, women account for nearly two-thirds of travelers today. With this steady rise in female travelers, there’s a new crop of travel companies offering unique experiences catering to this growing segment of women travelers. Washington, DC-based Wild Terrains is one of those companies, specializing in small group trips for women that support female-owned and operated businesses in its destinations. They’ve recently expanded their women-only group trips to Portugal, with trip dates starting in September 2019. The travel company’s mission is to connect creative women from around the world in dynamic destinations, while collaborating with local women entrepreneurs, artists, designers, and chefs. Wild Terrains is the only travel company leading women-only group trips that partner exclusively with local, female-owned businesses. Wild Terrains first launched trips to Mexico City in January 2019. To date, its Mexico City trips have been a huge success and are sold out for the remainder of 2019. The company plans to announce its Mexico City 2020 trip dates soon. After the success of Mexico City, Wild Terrains has expanded and launched their second destination – Portugal – with two group trips scheduled for fall 2019: September 4th - 11th and September 28th – October 5th. This eight day/seven-night journey takes women travelers to Lisbon, Alentejo, and Porto. Wild Terrains’ Portugal Experience is also packed with creative activities that support local, female-run businesses. For more information, visit or email
