Eurynome Journeys’ WanderWoman® Tours since 1998

Eurynome Journeys is a woman-owned and operated business crafting tours for female travelers since 1998.  Our women-only trips took on the name WanderWoman® tours to distinguish them from other Eurynome Journeys’ travel services, such as custom educational and archaeology tours.  Traveling solo can be stressful. There are safety issues, logistical matters, and the little things (i.e., not having anyone to watch your bag when visiting the lady’s room). Our small group tours are designed to alleviate the stresses of traveling solo. Yet, by keeping the group size at eight to twelve travelers, we are able to stay at smaller quaint local hotels, enjoy eating like a local, avoid crowds, and even be spontaneous!

The pace is leisurely, with ample time to relax or explore the uniqueness of each destination for those who like to do it all. Our WanderWoman® travel groups are NOT motor coach tours, although occasionally, we use minibusses for locally guided tours included in the itineraries and transfers. In addition to included sightseeing, extra excursions can be arranged locally. A knowledgeable WanderWoman® tour director/escort accompanies each group to ensure you a stress-free vacation. Whether you are a first-time traveler or a seasoned veteran, we invite you to join one of our travel adventures. Eurynome Journeys WanderWoman® tours are not only for soloist wander women, so bring a friend, mother, daughter, or sister if you like.

Erja Lipponen on a WanderWoman Journey

Erja Lipponen

Founder and Group Organizer

Erja Lipponen: My passion for travel, history, mythology, and archaeology has taken me throughout Europe, Southeast Asia, the South Pacific islands, Australia, and New Zealand. This piqued my interest in ancient history and cultures, directing my focus in graduate school to women in ancient Mediterranean civilizations and women’s reception of classics. Travel stimulates our minds and expands our understanding of the world, which is what I hope to accomplish with my tours. For over 30 years, I have crafted unique travel itineraries.  First, at Leisure Markets in Connecticut, designing customized foreign independent travel itineraries for individuals. A model I have applied to our WanderWoman® small tours and retreats. 

I have personally planned these itineraries, and I, or one of our destination specialists, will be escorting you to take care of details, answer questions, and ensure you a hassle-free vacation. I invite you to join us on one of our WanderWoman journeys. Live, Laugh & Travel!
