Are you dreaming of joining an expedition?
As well as our free and low-cost adventures across the UK, Love Her Wild organises a handful of bespoke Expeditions each year for women ready to take on a bigger challenge! Our Epic Adventures are organised in partnership with vetted expedition companies and at least 10% of profits are donated to Love Her Wild CIC.
Our expeditions focus on bringing small teams together to have unforgettable adventures in beautiful wild places. We always put an emphasis on being a supportive team over reaching any goal.
Love Her Wild is passionate about protecting nature and wildlife. Traveling has an impact on the planet, we can’t take that away. But what we can do is ensure those miles count while reducing our footprint as much as possible. We serve vegetarian meals only, say no to 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 you want to join and we’ll add you to a waiting list – firstname.lastname@example.org.
After every expedition, we ask team mates to give the adventure a rating out of 10. Our current average rating is 9.3!

Here are just a handful of some of our previous expeditions….
This tight-knit Love Her Wild team took on a 4-day hike in the Negev desert in Israel. A vast place where very few tourists venture! Either side of the expedition the team also fit in a visit to Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea and Jerusalem.
Paddle Pickup; Coast 2 Coast
17 women with a passion for tackling the plastic pollution in our oceans, took on this world first expedition. They kayaked the width of the UK via our waterways starting in Bristol and finishing in London. 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 journey – British Canoe article – Guardian article on expedition leaders: Bex Band & Erin Bastian – Summary from Jodie, a team member – Feature in the Adventure Magazine
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 camaraderie the team took away meant this was far from a failure!
Whale Shark Conservation
Swimming daily with whale sharks and collecting essential data on this endangered species. The team spent 10 days on the island of Mafia learning all about conservation and what more we could be doing to protect our oceans.
A fantastic team of 16 headed to North India for a 2-week expedition climbing to the 6,000+ summit on Stok Kangri. Although flooding and snowfall prevented a summit, the team had an amazing time and also contributed to scientific research collecting data from the glacier and keeping diarys to help a study on women in extreme environments.
Lady Anne’s Walk
The Lady Anne’s walk is a 100-mile journey steeped with history. A Love Her Wild team took on the hike over 5 days, carrying all their own supplies and wild camping each night.
