- YOUR CHECKLIST
Here's the plan...
Friday June 7th
Arrive at Hunter Valley Adventures, located near Sundre, Alberta between 6-7pm. If flying in, we recommend flying into Calgary International Airport and renting a car as the property is not located on a public transit route.
Once arrived, you will settle into your cabin, meet your roommates and pin on your custom made name tag. The evening is yours to enjoy, mingling with the other women and enjoying basecamp.
Introductions will be made around 7:30pm and we will chat about what our adventure looks like. Light snacks will be provided but we suggest you eat dinner beforehand. A fire will cap off the evening and we get a good nights rest for tomorrow's whitewater rafting adventure.
Saturday June 8th
Breakfast is continental style where a variety of oatmeal, bagels and toast are offered.After breakfast you will pack your own bagged lunch and we will head out for the day.
The activity today is a full day of whitewater rafting! We will first raft the lower portion of the Red Deer River.
Lunch will split up our day as we hop on the bus and head up towards the upper portion of the river.
Rafting all the way back to camp we will hit everything from Class II to Class III rapids.
After rafting, it's time to relax! Strum a guitar, sit by the fire or simply wander around the beautiful property. Dinner (BBQ) will be served in the main cookhouse and the evening will include games, fires and more.
There will be a chance to make your own wrapped river rock pendent so you can take a piece of your adventure home with you.
Sunday June 9th
Breakfast will be a repeat of yesterday with plenty of coffee to go around (or tea if you prefer).
After breakfast, take part in some outdoor yoga or if you like you can pack up and head out.
We do ask that the cabins are emptied by 10am.
There will also be the option for a guided hike for anyone who wants to stick around a little longer.
After the hike, say goodbye to the beautiful surroundings and the new friends you've made.
You'll need to provide...
Let's get you there...

How are Women Who Explore Events different from other events?
The number one goal is to introduce you to other kick-ass, adventurous women. It’s all about building tribes! Our second goal is to introduce you to the outdoors. It’s quite the thing to witness, putting a group of women who are passionate about the outdoors in an epic location. We know it’s a cliche thing to say… but it’s where the magic happens.
Do you arrange transport to the event?
No. You are responsible for your own transportation to the events
Is food included?
Yes. Unless otherwise specified in the trip itinerary or information.
Is there a minimum age for this event?
19+ for all events in Canada. 21+ for all events in the USA.
I want to book with friends. How do I do that?
The best way is to add all of the tickets to one cart, that way you know if we have enough spaces.
I'm coming solo. Is that okay?
YES! More than 70% of women who sign up for our trips, sign up solo.
Is a deposit required to secure my place?
Yes. Deposits vary from trip to trip. Check each individual event page for details.
What if I need to cancel?
Please let us know as soon as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to offer refunds but you can transfer your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of the Women Who Explore getaways, we don’t offer refunds. We do, however, offer transfers. You are responsible for finding someone to transfer your ticket to and arranging the exchange of funds for your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.
How many people will be going to the event?
Our group sizes vary, but never exceed more than 20 people. This gives us the chance to really connect with one another and to make sure each individual has the best time possible.
Who will be managing our trip?
One of our awesome trained ambassadors will be running your trip.
Is there a strict daily itinerary?
There is an itinerary for each getaway, but we realize everyone has their own needs. When you purchase a getaway, you will join a private Facebook Group to work out all the details. We will help facilitate to the best of our ability!
Do I have to join in on all the activities?
You can still join us on the getaway, the ticket price remains the same. You are not required to join in on all the activities. You do you!
Are these tech-free events?
Nope! We happen to love social media and sharing what are doing with others. We find it so inspiring! You can choose to be tech-free, but we encourage you to share your experiences digitally if you feel like it.
What if the weather doesn't cooperate?
Let’s be honest, Mother Nature never cooperates. That’s why we love her. Keep an eye on the forecast and pack accordingly. We never let uncooperative weather ruin our fun!
