Go Girl!

Bushwise Women New Zealand Ltd has rebranded its online presence as womensholidays.com






Early in 2015 we decided to change our online trading name to Women’s Holidays.  Bushwise Women NZ Ltd remains the legal owner of Women’ s Holidays, but we thought that Women’s Holidays more accurately reflects what our trips are nowadays. Bushwise Women was started in 1991 in New Zealand, by Cynthia Roberts and Ros Heinz, Bushwise Women lays claim to being the longest established women only tour company – many have come and gone, but Bushwise/Women’s Holidays travels on!  Initially, Bushwise Women offered eco-adventure tours of kayaking, cycling and hiking, mostly in New Zealand.  Yvonne Jenkins purchased Bushwise Women New Zealand Ltd in 2003, increasing the international destinations, whilst still maintaining the founding ethos of  a small, down to earth and friendly, women – only tour company. 


With the 20 plus years experience that Bushwise Women gives us, Women’s Holidays began 2015 with an expanded team and a fresh new vision. Whilst we continue to provide some of our favourite trips, we look forward to bringing you an exciting range of new international destinations into the future. 


We are constantly meeting wonderful women on our adventures ! Some of the highlights included Lesvos (such a special Island in Greece) and meandering along the Canal du Midi through the beautiful South of France.  A big thank you to all of the empowering women who help make all our trips so memorable.


Every New Year. New adventures!


As the New Year approaches, do you feel the need for an adventurous getaway? Why not visit the country famous for adventure holidays?  New Zealand!  Join our experienced guide Sea Kayaking in the beautiful Bay of Islands on this short break in early February.  Staying on a private island in quaint cottages, fun, sun, and adventure await you…

Alternatively, would you prefer to pamper and be gentle with yourself ? With Women’s Holidays you’ll have the opportunity to revitalise by  joining us on a retreat on the Scottish Isle of Iona.  This very special destination is steeped in spiritual history – you cannot helped but be moved by this magical Isle.
