Hey guys! I'm so excited to share trips made especially for female travelers with you!


torres del paine o circuit

I want to show you exploration and adventure the way that I see it: playful, intriguing, vibrant, and inviting.

Join me, expert guides, and a group of other adventurous travelers as we explore some of the world’s most exciting and unique places.

Meet like-minded BMTM readers who also want this kind of incredible, immersive experience, get to know new places, and indulge in a trip created for travelers of all backgrounds that will show you what adventurous travel is all about in a safe, attainable, and fun way.

Our groups are kept small and are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. This allows us to all get to know each other and for you to feel less like a number and more like an integral part of the experience, all while giving us access to smaller, local, more authentic, and ecological local operators.

WOMEN'S PATAGONIA TRIP

Backpack the most beautiful part of Patagonia in comfort. Learn to photograph the stars.


MARCH 2020: This 13-day Patagonia experience combines the best of adventures with comfortable tents and a luxury hotel at the end. See the crown jewel of Chile! 

THE O CIRCUIT IN TORRES DEL PAINE

We’ll spend 9 days hiking the beautifully challenging circuit in Torres del Paine. Unlike most backpackers, we'll have tents set up for us with thick mats and warm sleeping bags each night. 

See the Southern Patagonian Ice Field all day long. Watch as the sunrise illuminates the Torres, and photograph the stars at night with me!

RIDE HORSES, SEE THE PARK FROM A PRIVATE TOUR, AND MORE

Our park visit doesn't end when the trek does. We'll stay in the luxury Hotel Las Torres for 2 nights following our trek where we'll be able to ride horses in the park, and we'll take a Full Paine bus tour including a boat ride up to the famous Grey Glacier. 

Enjoy special photography workshops with Kristin, come home with amazing photos, and have a Patagonia experience that you’ll never forget with a fantastic group of new friends!

She took care of all the tiny details.

I had been eyeing a trip to Patagonia for a couple years, but the actual task of planning it all seemed so daunting, especially from afar - permits, buses, gear, food, clothing - I did not know where to begin!  When I saw Kristin's trip, it was a no brainer - she took care of all the tiny details and all I needed to do was show up with appropriate gear (for which she also provided the perfect packing list).  This was the first multi-day trek I have done, and it was made possible by the planning and guidance of Kristin and Pete. The trip itself was amazing - I was so excited for Patagonia, and it truly exceeded expectations!  Kristin also provided tips on photography that helped me capture amazing memories. Highly recommend traveling with Kristin and Pete! - CRYSTAL

WOMEN'S FRENCH POLYNESIA TRIP

Swim with majestic humpback whales


SEPTEMBER 2020: This 1-week French Polynesia trip includes cultural immersion, majestic Humpback whales, and a life-changing experience. 

THE BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD TO SWIM WITH WHALES 

This is an experience you will not find anywhere else. We will explore a secret island in French Polynesia (that I will not mention anywhere on social media or the blog) and spend most of our time swimming with whales. We will visit mothers and calfs, swim with several curious adults at once, drop in on a 'heat run' where several males pursue a female in heat, and even witness singing whales! 

We rely on nothing but the whales' natural playfulness to entice them to swim with us, keeping it ethical and respectful. We do not feed, touch, nor chase the whales. 

CULTURAL IMMERSION

We will explore the island on cultural tours with a local family, who will tell us all about the local history, ancient beliefs, and living traditions.

Enjoy a special underwater photo editing session with Kristin and Matthew, come home with amazing photos, and have a French Polynesia experience that you’ll never forget!

Everything I was hoping for.


These tours have been everything I was hoping for and so much more! We’ve traveled to amazing places, and each day is always packed with fun, active adventures. I love that the emphasis is on doing awesome things, rather than ticking off a checklist of sights that I’ll forget before I’ve finished editing the photos (because I’m not on top of that shit at all). I have so much confidence now in these tours that I barely need to read the itinerary – I know when we go someplace new that each day will be fun and different, and I just have to be open to it! Pete is an amazing guide, a rare combination of totally competent and organized and completely laid back and funny. Together, Kristin and Pete set a fun and friendly atmosphere. - JENN

Three wanderlust addicts and adrenaline junkies about to take you on an epic adventure!

His favorite traveling experiences were volunteering for two months at the Tibetan Refugee Assistance Center in India and backpacking for fourteen days through remote areas of Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Preserve in Alaska. He wants me to tell you that his strongest attribute is ability to pack snacks for a trip, but I think it's his inventive 'would you rather' jokes.

She has traveled to over fifty five countries on nearly every continent, hiking, hitchhiking, and solo traveling each time.

What Previous Attendees are Saying:


Every bit of my expectations were exceeded.

The BMTM trip to Iceland was such an incredible experience. I could not have asked for more from this trip. Every bit of my expectations were exceeded. We saw such beautiful parts of the country that most tourists don’t get to see. The backpacking part of the trip allowed us such magnificent scenery everyday. We all agreed that Iceland’s landscape was indeed “other worldly.” Hiking together for six days enabled us to experience female empowerment at its best as we encouraged and supported one another throughout the journey. All details were meticulously planned out by Kristin and Pete and they made sure that everyone’s needs were always taken care of. I have since joined Kristin on another BMTM Adventure to the Galápagos and it was once again memorable and life-changing experience! - CLARISSA

Completely present and fully enjoy each moment.

The absence of anxiety from the tiny details of planning, allowed me to be completely present and fully enjoy each moment. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to experience these special corners of the earth with someone mindfully planning each step. - JENNIFER

Genuine camaraderie and support amongst the group of women.

The Iceland Kristin and Pete showed us was straight out of a fairytale. I’ve literally never seen a more whimsically beautiful place in my life! Along the Laugavegur Trail we hiked a glacier, crossed a volcanic field, spotted multiple rainbows and lost count of all the waterfalls we passed. This was the most challenging trek I’ve ever done but man were the views worth it! Additionally, the activities we did before and after the hike were really cool and uniquely Icelandic. I truly feel like I got to experience the best of everything the country has to offer. What really made this trip one of a kind though was the sense of genuine camaraderie and support amongst the group of women (and Pete). Overall a wonderful and empowering experience! I would absolutely be interested in joining in on another BMTM adventure in the future! - ALICIA



Empowered by other like minded women ​along the way.

I have now done two tours with BMTM adventures and I would do it again. Kristin and Pete have ever detail planned out and organized to create a stress free vacation for any adventure goer with an open mind. Whether you are surfing in the Galapagos or going on safari in Africa, you are going to have an amazing time and be empowered by other like minded women along the way. I don’t even have to see what the itinerary is anymore. I just see it’s a destination I want to go to and know I am all in! - SAMANTHA

Everything was very organized and an absolute blast!

I had a wonderful time on my BMTM Peru adventure! From the activities that we did before The Inca Trail (salt mines, via ferrata, zip lining, etc.) to the actual Inca Trail, everything was very organized and an absolute blast! Kristin and Pete were both great guides, and did everything they could to make everyone’s trip awesome!  I highly recommend to others to go on a BMTM trip, and plan to go on another one in the future! - CALIE


Kristin planned the perfect itinerary.

I was so happy to be a part of the first BMTM group trip. It exceeded my expectations in so many ways….going on group trips, you never quite know how they’ll turn out. But this trip to Peru was amazing!! Kristin planned the perfect itinerary… it was packed full of amazing sights, photography tips, and adventure.  But without the annoying group time constraints that large company tours usually have.  Kristin and Pete were fun and down to earth and made the trip so memorable along with all of the other individual travelers I met. Couldn’t have asked for a better group.  Overall it was an amazing trip that I’ll never forget and I can not wait to join another BMTM adventure!! Thanks so much!! - KASSANDRA
