Love Her Wild organises all-female expeditions. A mix of smaller weekend and bigger ambitious adventures both in the UK and overseas. We like to set challenges that are a little different to get us off the beaten track and to provide a more authentic experience while improving outdoor skills in the process. We also organise a handful of conservation-focused expeditions each year because looking after the planet is important to us.
Over anything else, our expeditions put a focus on team and fun. The trips are friendly and relaxed. Sure we want to reach our goal…but more than that we want to laugh, build friendships and confidence. Don’t worry about coming alone as most women do.
We look forward to seeing you on an adventure soon!
