In celebration of International Women’s Day, check out Intrepid Travel’s Women’s Expeditions. Imagine Iran, Peru, Morocco, India, Jordan all in the company of other women. “In some countries, there are things mixed-gender groups just can’t do. What if, as a female traveler in Iran, you could head down to the beauty salon with your female leader and get your hair done? The hijab comes off and there’s a real chance of connection. Or you might prefer to learn how to make traditional Indian food at a home-cooking class in Jaipur. This limited-edition series of expeditions is all about breaking down barriers, fostering discussion and creating immersive local experiences for women that are ordinarily off limit on our regular group departures.” There’s no discount on women’s expeditions, but all their regular Canadian and US tours are 15% off until march 11 and up to 25% off Antarctica until March 31.
