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.

Our adventures are eco-friendly. We serve vegetarian meals only, say no to plastic, encourage the use of public transport and source out local providers who have a similar ethos.
