Get OUT and experience the Real World

Small groups. Seven continents. LGBT advenures.

Whoever said that lesbians and gays are taking over the world was right – at least in the adventure travel category. I’ve wished for this for years, since starting Ms. Adventures in the 80s. Finally, some eco-eXhilaration escapes that women can enjoy with their own group of friends and kids, or by joining other lesbians and gays on an OUT Adventure. Book online today at Ciao, Dee

Gay Adventure Tourism Operator Steps Out
With GAY, GREEN & AFFORDABLE International Tours from Swaziland to Switzerland


Canadian based OUT Adventures today announced the global launch of operations and website Business and personal partners Robert Sharp and Steven Larkin have created eco-friendly OUT Adventures in order to address a current gap in the gay and lesbian travel segment that limits adventure travel to a handful of luxury operators.

“As avid gay travelers, Steven and I felt we could leverage our knowledge of the LGBT market and also the mainstream travel industry in order to provide a much more affordable, culturally enriching experience to gay men, lesbians, their friends and families,” says Robert. “We want to offer safe, comfortable, spirited travel experiences for people like us.

Larkin adds “Gays and lesbians are looking for their next big travel experience, but amidst economic uncertainty they also don’t want to break the bank. We now offer this traveller a truly engaging, comfortable (average 3-3.5 star) experience that leaves them with plenty of spending money.”

OUT Adventures will operate closed groups with a maximum of 12 passengers and has over 80 global departures planned in its first year. Trips are tailored to meet the needs of gay and lesbian travellers and begin at $875 CAD for an 8 day trip to Peru including a 3 day hike to Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail.

All trips will have a strong focus on responsible travel by using locally owned hotels, restaurants and also interaction with local communities, both LGBT and mainstream.

The company is also leading this niche market by operating in a manner that contributes to the well being of the planet – from using green power in the OUT Adventures head office to including carbon emission off-setting in the cost of approximately 15% of its trips in its first year and in all trips by 2010.

In order to provide the best itineraries at the most affordable prices, OUT Adventures has partnered with one of the world’s leading adventure tour operators, Intrepid Travel which will allow OUT to contract with a global network of destination management companies under the Intrepid brand.

Travellers can choose from Active, Comfort, In Style , Independent and also Family trips for same sex couples with children over the age of 6. Trips are available directly through the OUT Adventures website at and travel agents worldwide.

You can book any of the Out Adventure holidays with Rainbow Tourism
