WanderWoman Tours & Retreats - Live, Laugh & Travel

Eurynome Journeys invites you to…

join our WanderWoman® Tours, and a small group of adventurous women traveling together, to visit some of the most beautiful places in the world. Travel to Greece, tour Ireland, retreat in Maine, vacation in Italy, discover Malta, explore Egypt, Russia, and more! Our WanderWoman® women-only travel vacations and women’s wellness retreats are designed to provide an exciting, yet hassle-free, alternative to the typical “package tour.” Our tours are active vacations, but the pace of our women-only trips is leisurely with ample time to explore the charm and sights of each destination. Hike, bike, visit museums and galleries, or just relax. The group sizes are small (approx. 6-12) enabling us to stay at unique hotels and inns with local ambiance and to dine at quaint local restaurants. Our trips are not just for solo travelers. So bring along a friend, a sister, your daughter or your mother. We have specialized in women-only small group travel to Europe, the Middle East, the US & beyond since 1998. Learn what women who have traveled with us say about our trips.
