We are a boutique travel company for mindful & adventurous women.
Our aim is to empower women to travel the world, in a safe, ethical, and meaningful, way.
We create multi-dimensional, intimate group trips that:
Foster authentic cultural experiences
Cultivate whole hearted relationships
Support small locally owned businesses
We bring a photographer on each trip, so that you can be less distracted and more present. Included in our itinerary each morning is an optional yoga class to provide you the opportunity to develop self awareness.
WHO WE WORK WITH
Our trips would not be what they are without the amazing individuals around the world who inspire the architecture of each itinerary. We develop personal relationships with owners of small local businesses to create one of a kind authentic experiences unique to Arrow Retreats. Each experience is in collaboration with our local partners, to connect with and celebrate the people who ultimately create a place.
An anthropological approach:
When we travel, we create an environment where travelers feel like guests and friends, rather than tourists. We connect with locals to learn and appreciate our differences, while acknowledging subtle ways we are interconnected. We honor and support the many partners who impact their communities, and share their stories.
From natural dying workshops, and fashion studios, to sharing meals with exciting restauranteurs, and visiting small boutique hotels, we'll have every detail organized thoughtfully with locals in mind.
When selecting a destination, we embrace the landscape in our itineraries.
Mountains? Let's hike. City? Let's find the side streets. Ocean? Swim, surf, catamaran, of course.
Movement oriented activities allow our guests to fully participate in and appreciate the local geography.
CULTURE + ARTS
We work with fashion designers who value sustainability, makers who positively impact their communities, and artisans who celebrate ancient traditions. Guests will have intimate experiences with amazing people who are preserving culture and pioneering local commerce.
FOOD + AGRICULTURE
Sharing of meals is the most ancient form of bonding. Food is the common bond that connects us all. Food and agriculture are fundamental components of the architecture of each itinerary. We work with local farmers, chefs, and sommeliers, to help us to appreciate each meal, and where it comes from.
OUR COMMITMENT TO TRAVEL
Our commitment to travel was founded on a deep reverence for understanding human beings, past and present. Our trips are driven by three fundamental questions. How did we come to develop our social and cultural behaviors in relationship to our natural environment? How do our stories connect us? How can I be of service to our collective evolution?
As Travelers & Guests,
We honor traditions and respect differences.
We visit places and communities with curiosity, openness, and respect.
We tread lightly, listen fully, and ask questions.
Join us to experience a new way of travel -- where you will discover what it means to be immersed in our world community while you deepen your relationship with yourself.
