Koru - Wanderlust Solo Women Tours



At Wanderlust Solo Women Tours, my mission is to empower women of all ages, backgrounds, and life stages to embrace solo travel with confidence and enthusiasm.

I understand the challenges and apprehensions many women face when considering solo adventures, and I am here to provide the support, resources, and unforgettable experiences they need to overcome those barriers.

Through curated travel experiences, personalized travel coaching, plus safe and inclusive community building, I aim to guide women on transformative journeys from fear to empowerment, from self-doubt to self-discovery.

My journey

Kia ora, I’m Gina – the founder of Wanderlust Solo Tours.

am passionate about ensuring my tours and retreats are a balance of activities and relaxation, while building connections, new friendships and making sure you have a good laugh along the way!


How it all began:

I was nearly 40. Yes, 40 years old. Where did the time go? Wasn’t I supposed to have figured it all out by now?

I had a house, I had a job, I had my own business, yet I wasn’t happy or fulfilled. I felt the lack of what I “should” have in my life.

Then it all changed over night. A bad long term relationship breakdown left me reassessing everything, wondering why I had all the material things yet felt so empty.

I had worked hard and made sacrifices. I had the dream house and a good business, but a huge mountain of debt after the separation and a lot of unresolved emotions.


I’ve got your back!
When planning a holiday there can be so much to remember and do, not to mention the organising at home.
So, what better than to have a travel “wing-woman” to help you and take the stress off?

Thinking of a holiday, escape or want to travel but just don’t know where to start?

Seeing feedback like this is why I do what I do.
Connecting people not only with each other, but a deeper level of travel experiences!
Thank you 🙏🏻

Today here in New Zealand, we are celebrating MATARIKI.
As this is a time to remember those no longer with us, reflection and new beginnings it’s also an opportunity to say thank you to everyone who often finds these moments while on retreat. I hope this is a special day for everyone, and sending out many blessings no matter where you are in the world!

Matariki ✨
Mānawatia a Matariki
The appearance of Matariki (star cluster) in the morning sky in mid-winter marks the Māori New Year, or Te Mātahi o te Tau.
It signals a time to remember those who have passed, celebrate the present and plan for the future. It’s a time to spend with whānau and friends – to enjoy kai (food), waiata (song), tākaro (games)


Do that solo trip. It will teach you more than you realise! ...

Winter vs Summer. Which one do you prefer?? Pop 🥶 or 🥵 in the comments.
