Women’s Adventures Are On The Rise
Women’s Adventures at Dreamland Safari Tours
Utah has a long history with women’s leadership (read more), and we here at Dreamland Safari Tours are happy to fit right into that strong tradition of female leadership in the region. Even though outdoor adventure is still a traditionally male-dominated field, we proudly count multiple female desert guides among our staff – and more than 50% women employees overall when you include non-guide staff! In addition, Dreamland co-owner Sunny Stroeer has long been an outspoken advocate for female participation in backcountry adventures.
That’s why we are excited to offer a select number of women’s adventures each year, as well as a special celebration of International Women’s Day (IWD). Utah is magnificent, and women have played and continue to play an integral role in shaping it. Dreamland Safari Tours is carrying that legacy forward – because everyone wins when gender equality extends to the great outdoors.
Dreamland’s IWD Adventure – 2021 Edition
Come spend International Women’s Day on March 8 in Kanab! We are excited to bring you a women-only adventure hike led by our female guides. We’ll whisk you away on our Guide’s Choice Tour to a top-secret hiking destination, to share an unforgettable adventure with a small group of like-minded outdoor loving women. All ages are welcome; COVID precautions apply. To join this special outing on March 8, please be prepared to hike a minimum of six miles and up to ten miles across varied terrain that may include deep sand, steep ascents, and potentially some gentle scrambling.
The 2021 IWD Adventure Award
The IWD Adventure Award is intended to recognize a woman who makes an impact, who leads by example and inspires others, and who is an advocate and champion for female participation and leadership in her community.
We have teamed up with Kanab’s award-winning Sego Restaurant and the Canyons Boutique Hotel to bring you a special treat for this year’s International Women’s Day: on March 8 of this year, one hand-picked woman will get to travel to Kanab to participate in Dreamland’s IWD women’s hike and enjoy some of Kanab’s finest hospitality – on us. We are looking for a woman who loves the outdoors and would enjoy to the opportunity to participate in a backcountry hiking adventure.
