As adventure travel evolves, it’s becoming increasingly niched. Consider AdventureWomen, which specializes in “multigenerational vacations” where mothers, sisters, daughters, partners and friends can travel to some of the planet’s special places for some bonding.

One of the winter season’s most intriguing options is a Yellowstone National Park exploration – an adventure that features geysers, hot springs, bison and elk.

AdventureWomen’s itinerary “incorporates guided explorations via snowcoach, showshoe, sleigh and on foot,” according to the tour company. You’ll take in the park from places like the terraces at Mammoth Hot Springs and Old Faithful. The Yellowstone getaway includes a Montana guest ranch, located on the border of the park, near the west entry point.

This could rank among the contenders for trip of a lifetime. While Mother Nature is the main attraction, the ability to shelve the craziness of the outside world for a while and be with the people who matter most is the more lasting lure.

The word ‘Adventure’ is firmly imbedded in AdventureWomen. You’ll exert yourself during the trip and you need to be fit. The dates for this getaway are Feb. 10 – 16, and plenty of others are planned for 2013. AdventureWomen bills itself as “the oldest adventure travel company for active women over 30.”
