Are you ready for an adventure?

 

Love Her Wild organises women only team adventures.

Our goal? To help women realise what they are truly capable of. We think that happens best when you are outdoors challenging yourself, surrounded by supportive women who have got your back.

Love Her Wild is an eco conscious organiation, doing everything we can to help the planet. Traveling has an impact on the planet, we can’t take that away. But what we can do is ensure those miles count while reduce our footprint as much as possible. We serve vegetarian meals only, say no to plastic, encourage the use of public transport and source out local eco providers. A lot of our expeditions involve contributing to environmental efforts alongside lectures on conservation.

Our expeditions tend to fill up fast so make sure you have signed up to our newsletter and joined our private Facebook group so you are first to hear when these go on sale. Is the expedition you want to join full? Let us know you want to join and we’ll add you to a waiting list or will look at running another – [email protected]. If there is enough interest sometimes we will release a new date.

After every expedition, we ask team mates to give the adventure a rating out of 10. Our current average rating is 9.3!

Previous Adventures

The Woods

10 women who’d never met before and with varying abilities came together to spend 5 days living in the woods with just basic survival gear. Adventures don’t always have to be about going far or fast.

Along the way they picked up over 3,500 pieces of plastic pollution from the water while making quite a stir in the media…. – Short film made about our journeyBritish Canoe article Guardian article on expedition leaders: Bex Band & Erin BastianSummary from Jodie, a team member Feature in the Adventure Magazine

The team had to navigate dozens of locks and travelled up to 20km daily. By the end of the expedition the team had picked up 5,000 pieces of plastic pollution and raised hundreds of pounds for plastic fighting charities.

The Everest Adventure

Arctic Norway Expedition

5 women from the Love Her Wild community attempted to be the first all-female team to cross the Finnmark Plateau from North to South. Hit with tough weather and -32 temperatures, the team fell short of their target. The views of the horizon and northern lights and the comradery the team took away meant this was far from a failure!

12 Hours Wild & Solo

The ladies had set their challenge – to wild camp for a night on their own for the first time. The team of 8 spent the day hiking together before going off alone to find their own isolated camping spots.

Lady Anne’s Walk
