When people ask us what makes traveling with WHOA different, one thing comes to mind immediately: OUR PARTNERS. Because empowering and connecting women through adventure is at the heart of everything we do, we hold a strong commitment to social responsibility with every single journey we take. It’s extremely important to us that our partners and our work are both ethical and sustainable. That's why we partner with amazing organizations doing positive grassroots work in each of our destinations, and we work closely with each organization to address their greatest needs. Working together and sharing experiences is what makes our adventures extra special for everyone involved! We are so grateful for each and every one of them and want to share a little more about them with all of you.Read More
