Welcome to Wanderlust Solo Women Tours.

Empowering women to build confidence and friendships through travel.


Founded here in New Zealand by Gina, because she wanted to share her passion for travel, meeting people and self-empowerment..

After travelling the world solo later in life, Gina knew how this changed her, by building her confidence and developing life long friendships. She noticed how some women wanted to travel but just didn’t know where to start, either because they had no one to travel with or just lacked the confidence to do so, and that’s where WANDERLUST SOLO WOMEN TOURS was born.

Empowering Women through travel: this can be a life changing experience for some. Getting out of your comfort zone, testing boundaries, reconnecting with self and just having time to be the TRUE YOU!


Authentic, boutique travel.

Fun, flexible, bespoke small group women’s tours and retreats.

We aim to assist you to expand your horizons, build your confidence, and form enduring friendships, while having a fabulous time doing so! Women from of all walks of life are warmly welcomed and encouraged to join our tours and retreats while enjoying taking time out for themselves.

Take the road less travelled with us and travel like a local, not a tourist!

You’ll enjoy beautiful sights whilst tasting delicious locally produced food and discovering some great secrets only the locals know. We incorporate all things good, with fun and engaging activities, cultural connection, yoga and meditation, a little bit of pampering, as well as optional extras with plenty of laughs along the way. Where possible we also support a  “give back to the community day” with emphasis on Environmental and Social projects.

There is something for everyone! Treating your Mind, Body and Soul.

Our intimate, small groups allow for strong friendships and genuine connections to be made as well as allowing for flexibility.

Come and relax in Rarotonga, bliss out in Bali, reconnect in the Coromandel, NZ and Beyond!

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.

“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, and has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!”

What brings you JOY?
Contentment and joy are two pure things that combine and make us HAPPY.
Sometimes we lose what brings us joy, as we rush around in our busy lives.
Joy can be found just in the simplest things too. Your child’s smile ( or anyone's smile for that matter ), the way the sun reflects against the clouds, being with family or friends or doing a hobby you love.

The thing is we need to stop and recognise these moments, as they can be fleeting.

Stopping to enjoy the JOY can be the hard thing, as we are always pushed to be on the go and busy.

This is where taking time out to soak in all those little moments can be beneficial.
So what is your JOY?

When was the last time you took time-out just for YOU?
Sometimes it’s difficult for us to do this, financially it can be hard, or we have a feeling of guilt that spending money on ourselves or using time that could be served elsewhere is selfish.

Like what?
Why should we feel this way? When I’m sure you’d be your friends or family's champion if they said they needed something for themselves yet we struggle to justify this for ourselves.

Being and feeling our best is not selfish. If we are feeling good this reflects on those around us and how we go about our day-to-day lives.

You don’t have to spend money, time can be one of the best gifts we have. Setting aside even 5 mins for you, to do something you enjoy. Sipping a hot tea in the bath ( or wine ), taking a walk, meditate if you can. All have positive benefits.
If finances allow, have a massage once a month or a health treatment that makes you feel good and relaxed.

Wellness travel allows you to take in all these things and is an amazing thing to do once a year. Even if you just block out a week where you escape your life, recharge and refill your cup, get inspired and remember what it is to be YOU!

What comes to mind when you hear the term “Wellness Travel”?

You might think of detox or yoga retreats, which might not be your thing. But WELLNESS TRAVEL encompasses so much more.
Just like wellness itself can mean many different forms to different people. From wellness in the body, in the mind or the SOUL.

For some, it might mean going on an experience that focuses on healthy eating, exercise and mindful thinking.

For others, it literally might mean taking some “down time” from their busy lives to just rest, enjoy good food and chill by a pool.

Whatever it is that inspires you to recharge your batteries and fill your soul, that makes you come away feeling great and relaxed, is just what you need!
When YOU are feeling your best you can BE your best.
