Single-day Adventures in Your Backyard
We believe you can live a life full of curiosity and adventure when you’re out exploring the world, in the community you call home and everything in between. This is what we call a ‘living big’ lifestyle, and we want to be your partner to make this way of living a reality. For the past few years we’ve been helping women ‘live big’ in their travels through the US and internationally, but now we’re bringing it to your backyard with Living Big Adventure Club.
The inaugural Adventure Club chapter is in the Pacific NW, with many day trips originating from the greater Portland, OR area. There is no fee to join Adventure Club, you can register on a first come, first serve basis for the adventures you’re most interested in. Plan on new chapters rolling out in the coming years!
Some adventures are for women 21+, and others are open to young women, age 15-17, who are accompanied by their Mother or legal guardian.

What is the Living Big Adventure Club?
Living Big Adventure Club is a series of events designed to connect women to local experiences and other women, in their own backyard. Our inaugural Adventure Club chapter is in the Pacific NW, with many daytrips and activities originating in the greater Portland, OR area. Additional Adventure Club chapters in other communities across the US, will be rolling out in the coming years. There is no fee to join Adventure Club; women can simply register for the adventures they’re most interested in.
Is Adventure Club available in my community? If not, how do I request you come to my community?
Adventure Club is currently only available in the Pacific NW, but it will be expanding to other communities across the US in the coming years. Click here to request an Adventure Club in your area.
Are these adventures for women, only?
Yes, all Adventure Club events are for women, only. A major tenet of Living Big is to make international travel more accessible to women who don’t want to go at it alone. To learn more about the philosophy, click here.
Why is the Pacific NW the only chapter?
The Pacific NW chapter is our inaugural Adventure Club chapter because it’s the hometown of the team behind Living Big! But plan on additional Adventure Club chapters in other communities across the US, rolling out in the coming years.
