WanderWoman Tours & Retreats - Live, Laugh & Travel

Eurynome Journeys invites you to…

join our WanderWoman® Tours, and a small group of adventurous women traveling together. You will visit some of the most beautiful places in the world. Our WanderWoman journeys offer island hopping in Greece, tours of Ireland, retreats in Maine, vacations in Italy, getaways to Malta, expeditions to Egypt, Russia, and more! Our 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 Wander Women, so bring along a friend, a sister, your daughter/mother or partner. We have specialized in women-designed, women-only, small group travel to Europe, the Middle East, the US & beyond since 1998.
