By: Anna Claire Eddington

The story of AGC’s partnership with Mongolian Gobi Taiga Tour Co. is one of female relationships and support.

Inga got started guiding with the help of her mother and female professors. Now, Inga is a mother and business owner and her six-month old daughter is growing up in an ever-changing Mongolia.

An Interview with Sabina Sirco

By: Anna Claire Eddington
April 12th, 2019

"There is nothing more beautiful and fulfilling than to see others when they get out of the comfort zone, the smile and pride on their faces when they succeed in something they did not believe they can do," Sabina Sirco.    One of the greatest joys of adventure travel is meeting like-minded women all over the globe. Within just a few minutes of meeting Sabina Sirco on Skype we were laughing and talking excitedly as if we were old friends. By the end of the chat, she had invited me to Bosnia to come hiking with her. This was no surprise to me- I had heard about Sabina from my colleagues and they described her as friendly, warm, and ambitious. They were right. Sabina has guided our Hiking the Via Dinarica trip and we talked about women in the outdoors, sustainable travel, and how your coworkers can become your family.

Best Parks for Responsible Travel

By: Anna Claire Eddington
March 28th, 2019

As a former National Park Ranger and an avid visitor of both state and national parks, I love discovering the quiet side of our public lands. And as the Chief Sustainability Officer at AGC, I especially like finding parks that haven't been over-touristed. These are the areas that are still closest to their natural state, where the grandeur of nature isn't interrupted by human development, and where I can take in the views without someone snapping a photo on their phone next to me.

What (and Where) is the Via Dinarica?

By: Anna Claire Eddington
February 28th, 2019

Wild. Austere. Pioneering. The Via Dinarica is unlike any other trail you’ve ever trekked. Here, a spine of 8,000-feet high peaks tower over fairytale meadows. Alpine lakes glimmer through dense beech forests, and secluded stone houses stitch together a region previously known for splintered cultures, conflict and borders.

Two Widows from Nepal Climbing Towards Equality in the Mountains

By: Brenda Porter
December 12th, 2018

When our early morning flight along the Himalayan peaks ended quickly on the short runway in Lucla, Nepal, we walked off the 16-seater Summit Airlines plane to meet our female guide team for our 14-day trek to Everest Base Camp. We didn’t know yet that the summit of Mount Everest, not just the base camp, was the dream for two of our guides.
