Why Damesly?

We believe that travel is the best way to personal growth, but how does travel factor into our professional lives?

We created Damesly to bridge both worlds. Our adventures are designed to allow women to learn a new skill, perfect a new passion or just combine travel with immersion in a new community.

Our hands-on workshops feature women who lead the way in their fields. It’s all of the information you’d get in a stuffy conference, limited to a group of 20 or less, with the world as the backdrop.

We’re forming life-long personal and professional relationships, in really cool places.

We are a global sisterhood, and you’re a part of it.
