Best Women Travel Websites

Lies Ouwerkerk solo woman traveler
Lies Ouwerkerk, our Senior Contributing Editor, has traveled the world fearlessly but with prudence for many years.

After years of being relatively unrepresented, there are now an absolute plethora of great websites and blogs hosted by women alone or collaboratively. Articles, posts, resources, and other advice are offered by women in all situations around the world—from the perspective of single adventurous women, professionals, mothers, digital nomads, LGBT perspectives implicit and explicit, and generally from as many angles as can found. Often the websites/blogs are some of the best for providing information that speak to what we call cultural immersion around the world, but there is absolutely no limit to the angles covered.

Likewise, many women blog hosts speak to all sexes and do not necessarily define their travels and travel sites primarily by their gender.

Apologies to all those whom we do not yet list, as we will be adding more and more websites and blogs to this rapidly expanding list as time goes by. Please feel free to pass on your recommendations in our comments section, as it is truly hard to keep up with the tremendous resources in every form available on every device!
