What’s New in Women’s Solo Travel

We regularly survey our global magazine subscribers and tour operator network to align with their needs and produce relevant editorial and services.

Our global readers are made up of mature, active, adventurous women – the world’s most influential travellers

  • Women from over 120 countries
  • Prefer to travel and live solo
  • Enjoy history, art, adventure and active travel experiences
  • Most have been part of the JourneyWoman community for over 10 years
