Love Her Wild womens group

Are you ready for an adventure?

 

We bring small teams of women together to have unforgettable adventures in wild places – always putting an emphasis on being a supportive team over reaching any goal.

Make sure you’ve also seen our Local Groups page for get-togethers and adventures in your area!

Love Her Wild is passionate about protecting nature and wildlife. To reduce our environmental impact we only serve vegetarian meals, eliminate single-use plastic, encourage the use of public transport and source out local eco-friendly providers. A lot of our expeditions include contributing to environmental efforts, alongside conservation discussions and workshops.

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 they go on sale. Is the expedition you want to join full already? Let us know and we’ll add you to a waiting list – booking@loveherwild.com.

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