Love Her Wild womens group

Are you ready for an adventure?

 

Love Her Wild is the UK’s biggest women’s adventure community. We bring teams of women together to have unforgettable adventures in wild places – our emphasis is always on being supportive over reaching any goal. Most women come on their own, so don’t put off signing up for your first event with us. We’re a friendly bunch!

If you haven’t already, join our main Facebook group, sign up to our newsletter and discover your Local Group 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.

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