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.

The Dreamland Women’s Adventure Award – 2022 Edition

In 2022, we are celebrating International Women’s Day early: We are excited to host an all-female adventure weekend in Kanab from February 25 to 27 2022. 

Five hand-picked women will get to unplug and adventure in Kanab together, enjoying an unforgettable, full-day desert hiking adventure led by one of Dreamland Safari Tours female guides as well as two nights of lodging and meals – including a special behind-the-scenes dinner & cooking class with Elizabeth Foster at Kanab’s outstanding Sego Restaurant.  Lunch with one of the founders of Best Friends Animal Society, following a VIP tour of the Best Friends Sanctuary.  And did we mention it’s all on the house? 

The Women’s Adventure Award is intended to create a platform for women to connect with one another and enjoy adventures that they otherwise might not have the chance to participate in.  Recipients of the women’s adventure award love the outdoors, have a sense of adventure, are advocates for female participation and leadership in their community, and inspire others. You can apply for yourself, or nominate a family member / friend!

Each Women’s Adventure Award is valued at over $750 and includes:

  • A behind-the scenes visit and meal with Elizabeth Foster at Sego Restaurant
  • A full day backcountry hiking adventure with Dreamland Safari Tours
  • A VIP tour of the Best Friends Sanctuary and lunch with one of Best Friends Animal Society’s Founders
  • Two nights of lodging at the Best Friends Roadhouse

All ages are welcome; COVID precautions apply.  Participants should be prepared to hike a minimum of five miles and up to eight miles across varied terrain that may include deep sand, steep ascents, and potentially some gentle scrambling.
